Joomla - jCart/JooCart Generator

⚠️ Warning: This generator is deprecated and will be removed after December 31st, 2020.

What does this mean?
The dynamic slides you previously created will work until December 31st, 2020, but you are no longer able to create new dynamic slides. After the generator is removed, the previously created dynamic slides will not work anymore.

In this article

You can use these options to set what you want your generator to show.


⚠️ Warning: We don't support SEO url of jCart! jCart uses its own code to create SEO urls, not Joomla's. We have limited control over what kind of SEO urls it generates. Also, these SEO codes can be overwritten by other codes as well and jCart doesn't offer a code for developers to be able to generate SEO urls easily. Because of this, don't expect the seo_url and seo_category_url variable to work! The url and category_url will work, it just won't be SEO url.



You can select the categories from where you want the products.

In stock

You can choose to only show the products in stock or not in stock or all products.
