Training and Development for Drupal

Views + Views Slideshow Screencast

FAIL (the browser should render some flash content, not this).

If you like this screencast, you can show it by pitching in to a special fundraising effort. (And here's why.)

Here is a fast screencast on creating slideshows using the Views and Views Slideshow modules.

Views Slideshow provides a new display style to any view called "slideshow". It uses jQuery to display screens of content on a rotating basis. Slideshows can be text, photo, video, or any sort of node, comment, or user. Users can even pause the slideshow just by hovering the mouse over the slideshow area.

To make the best use of this screencast it would be awesome to have some prior exposure to the Views module for Drupal 6. You should also have working knowledge of Drupal including the installation of contributed modules.

excellent video on how something relativley simple can be very efective in terms of presenting a lot of data in a limited space

Thanks for the video. Very helpful. This is exactly what I was looking for :)

Very good explanation. Very "didactic". I wish I had teachers like You in my University. Thanks a lot.

I was starting to wonder why it was so complicated to set up a simple image slideshow in Drupal, with so many modules trying to do similar things. This video showed me that it's not complicated at all. At 2:30 am, you made one more Drupaler very happy.

Thanks a lot...

Thanks Sean for all the great Drupal screencasts. Hope to see more of them in future.

Duuuuuuuuude! That was the most cogent and concise video tutorial I have seen to date on Drupal-anything. I am deeply appreciative of your effort. Thank you.

Hey,
Thank you so much.
I have learned so much from videos from this site and have constructed my new site.

Thanks a lot Sean.

That was very helpful.

Thx a lot for this !

How can I set the url for each image in the slideshow so that when I click on the image it goes to a specified page?

thanks very much.
this is very useful.

Thanks man!

Very nicely done. Quick to the meat.

Great screencast! Thanks.

Thanks for a fantastically simple and straightforward screencast. I'm new to Drupal and I sure as hell need therapy after getting to grips with the basics. I've avoided views up until now but this looks real cool. Thanks for sharing - your place in Drupal heaven is assured.

Great tutorial!

Thanks

embed isnt working for me. invalid url. had to go to blip.tv to find video and watch

Sorry ...I don't love you ....but I sure appreciate this very useful cast I'm new to Drupal and you tied together so many things I didn't quite get. I wish there were more tutorials like this.

Cheers!!!

i love u

Thanks so much

Neato Burrito!

thank you very much. i really impressed. and one more request how to create rounded corners for blocks?

Great screencast! I have seen a couple other videos on views, but none were as simple and straight forward as this one. Great job and happy December.

Your tutorials are great. Before seeing this I thought views was just a useless module, but now I know better. I managed to add views slideshow: imageflow and got a cool gallery.

Great stuff. Very nice explanation and covered most of the things one would like to do.

But i also have a question: i have 2 - 3 days events (like conferences) and i am trying to display the date as : December 2 - 4th, 2009 instead of "December 2nd, 2009 - December 4th, 2009 " which is the best i could do so far.

If anyone has any idea how to achieve this, please let me know.

I'm glad I found your site. Please continue to share!!!!

You are my hero from this point! I tried to make this work for 5 hours and finally made it with your help =)

Another awesome screencast Shawn. Many thanks!

Your my man.....do you develop as well?

This is great to watch your videos. My head just blows up going round and round the documentation, but your videos make things much easier! Thanks!!

Good stuff! Tks

Thank you

Great screencast to short-cut the learning curve for Drupal-newbies like myself! However, I am struggling to get a slideshow block View setup using image nodes created by the Image module.

Ultimately, I want to have the image slideshow embedded in my home page content. I can get it working for a View as a Gallery Page by itself. Looks very nice. But I can't get the block view working. Since I can't pass the tid/2 gallery url to a block, do I have to make that happen with php?

How does a block view know where to get the images from?

Thanks,
Marshall

Very helpful!this is for my website

I´m really glad I found your site, thanks for helping out by putting really usefull information and extremly good tutorials to newbies like me and others...
