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.

Installation Instructions:

Pre-Installation

  1. 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.

Installation Instructions

  1. Back up everything! Try this in a test environment prior to installing it on a live shop.
  2. Unzip the file you have received.
  3. 2. 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.
  4. 3. Go to the files directory, then copy all files to the root of your shop.
  5. Add the page to the Information sidebox. Modify
    includes/modules/sideboxes/YOUR_TEMPLATE/information.php
    
    and add
    $information[] = '<a href="' . zen_href_link(FILENAME_VIDEOS) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_VIDEOS. '</a>';
    
  6. Add the page to your sitemap. Modify
    includes/templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/templates/tpl_site_map_default.php
    
    and add
    <li><?php echo '<a href="' . zen_href_link(FILENAME_VIDEOS) . '">' . BOX_INFORMATION_VIDEOS . '</a>'; ?></li>
    
  7. 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.php 
    
    and 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">
