Supply Theme: add a slideshow to your product pages
The Supply theme’s well known for its outstanding ease of showcasing and filtering large inventories. Store owners with large amount of products and stock certainly do benefit of Supply’s “straightforward” type of design. Anyhow, Supply’s fall short when it fails to provide a slideshow for product page images; users in this day and age are, according to studies, much more prone to scrolling than clicking.
This is where sliders come in handy, regardless of what theme or design one is after.
Bearing that in mind, in this tutorial I’ll show you how you can quick and easily add a slideshow to your Supply theme product page, all it takes is copying and pasting one single code file.
