Would you be able to add contained categories as a data source for the jCarousel plugin?

I noticed you do have sibling categories as an option, but it would also be great to have child categories as an option.

if you want to see an example of were this would be useful to have, especially in conjunction with the mega menu, let me know and I'll send you a link to a page on my website.

PS your new website looks really good!

Hi shanexh.

Thank you! We are glad that you like our new look.

We already added data source Sub Categories in our JCarousel plugin. Please download again the package and replace the JCarousel plugin folder with the new one.

Have a great day.

Great!

I have made styling modifications to the themes, also I do have several jCarousels already configured.

Can I copy everything except the themes folder, without uninstalling the plugin and re-configuring my jCarousels?

Thanks,

Shane

Yes you can.

The problem is that the new resources will not be installed.
You can add them manually. For example instead of "Sub Categories" for data source you will see sevenspikes.jcarousel.admin.datasourcetypes.subcategories . So just add the resource with value Sub Categories and everything will be OK. Do this for all of the resources that are not installed.

Have a great day.

I tried copying the newer resource files over. The only folders I didn't upgrade was Themes and Views.

First Try:

1. I turned off the website in IIS.
2. backed up my database and files.
3. copied the new files to the plugin directory.
4. Restarted my website in IIS.

Result:

errors on pages with jCarousel and errors on the plugin page.

Second Try:

1. uninstalled the plugin.
1. I turned off the website in IIS.
3. copied the new files to the plugin directory.
4. Restarted my website in IIS.

Same result.

I restored everything to what I had previously, but I must be missing a step or something.

There is an error when the Plugin is added to any widgetZone.
Nop 2.7
Server Error in '/' Application.

Source array was not long enough. Check srcIndex and length, and the array's lower bounds.

Hi shanexh,

You need to copy the Core and JCarousel folders. Also you need to update the view of the JCarousel, because we made some modifications for better performance and more readable code. The JCarousel contains only one view so it will not be hard, even if you have changed it.

After you update the plugins you can change the Global.asax file. Just download it from your website, add a space after the code, save it and upload it again.
I will be waiting for your update on this problem.

Best wishes.

Hi shvager87,

There is no problem on our end. We tested the plugin and it works fine with widget zones.
Can you please answer the following questions, so that we will be able to investigate your problem:
Have you updated the plugin from 2.65 to 2.7?
Have you updated the Core plugin?
Have you made any changes to nopCommerce code?

Please try to change the Global.asax file, as I described in the post above.

I will be waiting for your reply.

Best wishes.
