As a frontend app, the rotator can be assigned to a specific page, product, or category, and placed most anywhere in your store. In addition, a banner rotator can be used as a related banner that is associated with a specific shopping cart or catalog rule.
To add a standard banner rotator to your store, follow the steps below:
Create the individual banners that you want to include in the rotator.
Complete the first three steps for creating a frontend app.
