I'm new to Magento and I can't find out what must be done to enable Auguria Slider Plugin in my custom home page.
Here's what I've done so far:
- In Magento admin I created a website, a store and a store view
- Switched to this store context and setup a custom theme for it.
- Copied stuff from default theme to my custom theme
- Overridden things here and there, built a view for featured category...
Then I installed Auguria Slider, which let me enable it to any CMS pages I choose in Magento Admin.
My question is, how do I insert it in my custom home page theme, since it's not listed on CMS Pages?
I found the XML file for Auguria Sliders and copied to my local.xml what I found appropriate, it looks like this now:
<layout> <cms_index_defaultindex> <reference name="head"> <action method="addCss"><stylesheet>css/auguria/sliders/default.css</stylesheet></action> <action method="addJs"><script>auguria/sliders/jquery-1.7.2.min.js</script></action> <action method="addItem"><type>skin_js</type><script>js/auguria/sliders/slides.min.jquery_forked.js</script></action> </reference> <reference name="root"> <action method="setTemplate"><template>page/1column.phtml</template></action> </reference> <reference name="content"> <block type="auguria_sliders/catalog_category_slider" name="auguria_sliders" after="-" as="slider" template="auguria/sliders/slider.phtml"/> <block type="newsletter/subscribe" name="featured" after="slider" as="featured" template="page/featured.phtml"/> </reference> </cms_index_defaultindex> </layout>
If I enable Template Path Hints, I see it creates the html needed for the slider plugin, but shows nothing because no slider images data comes from backend.
Can you help me with this? What am I missing? Thanks in advance.
