Overview:If you have a bunch of video for products in your store that you want to show off, this module will help you do that.
- Login to YouTube and create a simple browser API key.
Authorize it for your domain, i.e. if your domain name is
mydomain.com, authorize the key for
*.mydomain.com/*This will be done from Google Developer's Console; search for "YouTube API Key" for current instructions on how to do it.
- Back up everything! Try this in a test environment prior to installing it on a live shop.
- Unzip the file you have received.
- Rename "custom" to your template name in all places where it occurs. Note: If you are using Zen Cart 1.5.5 or higher, your template name will be "responsive_classic" if you have not changed it.
- Go to the files directory, then copy all files to the root of your shop.
- Add the page to the Information sidebox. Modify
$information = '<a href="' . zen_href_link(FILENAME_VIDEOS) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_VIDEOS. '</a>';
- Add the page to your sitemap. Modify
<li><?php echo '<a href="' . zen_href_link(FILENAME_VIDEOS) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_VIDEOS . '</a>'; ?></li>
- To get the pagination buttons, you must include the font-awesome
font set. The easiest way is just to modify
includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/common/html_header.phpand at the end of the CSS imports, add
<link href="//cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/font-awesome/4.1.0/css/font-awesome.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
