Ok, I am a big fan of WordPress’s plugins more than osCommerce’s addons. So it is natural that I would look for a WordPress slider to use in osCommerce before installing one of osCommerce’s addons. Well, that’s because I had done both and I tend to go with the path of less resistance. Perhaps that was the path of less resistance to me as I can code a little so it was easier to hack than had to show our creative folks on how to create or update a nifty animated slide. Here I am going to show you how I had hacked Smart Slider 2 for WordPress into an OSC demo store that I am creating. I am also going to assume that you had integrated WordPress into OSC. I must say the result had turned out great. There was definitely a learning curve on figuring out how to use the slider’s admin inteface, but once that’s done you can for sure update your OSC front page with ease.
