CoolIris for osCommerce
"CoolIris" is a new way of browsing the web and adds a different browsing experience to your website.
Enabling the embedded wall will allow customers to grab the code and upload to their own webpages and blogs, generating links to your site and products. You will also gain RSS feeds for all categories on your site.
Although better XML generation options are available this package includes a manual version for backward compatibilty. A pure PHP5 version may be made available in future versions.
Installation is easy with three new files and only involves a few lines of changes to your code.

In the Admin section of your site you can now configure CoolIris settings from Configuration->Product Listing
* 'Activate CoolIris' switches it on or off
* 'Slideshow Settings' allows you to choose an embedded wall or a slideshow link. You can also choose to have the embedded wall maximised or minimised but your customers can choose a setting for themselves. This will stay active for the current session only. Future versions will allow registered users to choose a permanent setting from their account page.
* 'Window Width' chooses a window width for the embedded wall only. This is forced to a 1:1.689 aspect ratio.
* 'CoolIris Only' will toggle the normal product listing on or off. This setting only takes effect when the embedded wall is active. Not advised at this time. Future versions will allow registered users to choose a permanent setting from their account page.
I recommend you use high-quality images for your products. You should also use an image-resizing script for optimal bandwidth use and resizing. If you do use such a scipt you should alter lines 187 and 188 in catalog/cooliris.php for your optimised thumbnails and large images respectively.
