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.


nice screencast... would it possible/ how to do i incorporate this slideshow with pager(prev 1 2 3 4... next) and caption to each of the image? i've been searching for this kind slideshow but no luck... hope you mind sharing some idea here :)

If you are looking for a method of navigation between images in a gallery then you don't even need the Views Slideshow module. You can get a display that includes the image, caption, pager, "next" and "previous" buttons with the Views module alone. The Views Slideshow module is only a method of automating the transition from one node to the next.

basically i wanted a slideshow(with auto play) just like this one of your example. i only wanted to integrate some caption to each image with a pager(prev 1 2 3 4... next) that points to each relative images. so by what your saying, the Views module alone can make this possible? sorry... i'm still a newbie... i'm not much familiar with drupal but slowly i'm learning... :)

thanks for the response...

It is undoubtedly a medical breakthrough in taking care in the back-related problems.
" When we consider the metaphysics of medication vs chiropractic, we discover a vastly different nature of reality. Looking at the spine mainly because it functions and holds weight comes into play more than the disc.

Great screencast! I was listening to it as I set up my own views slideshow. Thanks for doing these...

hay man, thanks a lot you are rock.

Very helpful and nicely presented. Thank you!




thanx a lot for these terrific screencasts.

Best regards from rainy germany

Hi Sean,

I think the reason that I can not view the screencast is due to the firewall inside the mainland China. I used firebug and saw that the source of this screencast is from But I just could not get to

Is there any way I can get to watch this screencast? My email address is lipu.paul at


why can not I view this screen cast? Do I need to download something special?

Really awesome tutorial! I'm totally new to Drupal, and this was one of the most user-friendly tutorials I've seen yet! Make more :)

Thanks for the presentation! Really neat and useful introduction to this module.

All the best,



Great tutorial

Great video tutorial! Thanks!

Thanks Sean!

These are very educational and inspiring videos.

Question: By making a slideshow-block view of an imagefield, is it also possible to make the image clickable so the user jumps to the node with that image?

Greetings from The Netherlands,

Already found the answer to my question: Under field configuration there is a checkbox "Output this field as a link", that does exactly what I was looking for...

You are awesome. That was what I've looking for. Thank you so much for sharing and keep up the good work.


Dude, this is very cool !! Thanks and keep on, Golchi

Great post. It gave me idea like, it would be nice idea to have jquery carousel effect also like this.


Great job ,and yet another reason the wait to switch to Drupal6 is over for me.

wow that is impressive. Thanks man.
All the Drupal devs .. Thank you!

That was great. I installed Drupal about a week ago, and so far I'm pretty blown away. Not just by the capabilities, but by the community as well. Exciting stuff. Thank you

Thank you so much for your clear and concise help. This is the second time that you have moved me along in my attempt to become Drupal savvy.

Great work!


Good tutorial. Well done.

Excellent! Thank you very much!

I'm looking at the demo page that is provided on the module page on drupal Do you know how to provide thumbnails like is displayed there? I want to build an image gallery and having thumbnails and navigation would rock. :)

I second that recommendation. If a sliding jCarousel of thumbnail images could be time synced with a main Image in Views Slideshow you could have a very robust, non-flash Image Gallery.

I am going to test now to see if you can having two seperate views slideshows on the same page causes any conflicts.

I slaved over getting dynamic blocks to work all afternoon - this is totally what I was looking for. Thanks dude!
