I'd like a small strip of a banner, actually a photo, to display near the top of my product pages. But I want to randomize it from maybe 15 or so different ones. The idea is that each product, or maybe category as well, there would be a different strip of photo displayed.

 

All though I can have multiple banners on each page in carousel, I can't have them filled randomly from  a bunch of different ones. Only manually or newest.

 

I am using UniTheme but it's the same story with their banner add-on.

 

Does anyone know how to get them to fill randomly?

 

TIA,

Jack

It is not possible to display randoms randomly. But you can specify unique set of banners for each category/ product in one block

But then each product/category starts with the same banner being displayed. Unless you make each of them reordered. Seems like a lot of work... Is there not an add-on that would do this?

I'd also love to have this function, which I do with a bit of PHP code now myself. 
 
It would be awesome if we could add multiple images to 1 banner place, like with the silder, and each time (on each refresh) 1 of these images would randomly show (without sliding, it should simply load 1 of x images and with a refresh another one). As for the slider it would be great to have a random setting so that slides load randomly.
 
This way the homepage wont look so static to frequent visitors. 
 
Ecom-labs maybe you can add this function to your Banners Availability? I'd be happy to share the costs with someone.

I've installed the add-on in my 4.7.2 store running UniTheme. Having some issues:

 

- When I created a banner, I do not see the dialog for "available period".

 

- I created the banner block and choose "Random" and the banners. But it just displays them all at once on the page.

 

Also is thee a way to specify the height of banners when I go to mobile platforms? If I view the page on my phone it is scaled down very tiny. I was looking at your other add-on for "Full-width Blocks" but couldn't determine if that would allow it.

 

Page is here: https://www.opticalo...er-housing.html

 

TIA,

Jack

We cannot reproduce it on the clean 4.7.2 installation. Please PM me to solve the issue

I am afraid, it is not possible

I have the same issue. Random loads them all at once..

Did you set up limit? Jack just did not set up limit to 1 and it caused the issue
