creating a slide show


  • Question

Hello, I am trying to create a slideshow using views. Here is the page:
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to do this without the views slideshow modules?
Thank you,


One way is to have Views output all images and use Javascript to control image visibility.


Hello, I am trying to create a slideshow. I have followed the advice of the folks in the forum like this:

"This is possible to do, with caveat* on MIT's Drupal Cloud, but it does require using Views. The basic idea goes something like:
1. Create a Content Type or node with Fields to hold you banners or video links.
2. Create a View: Block to display the banner or video link. Limit the display to 1 item (in the case of the banner) or several (for the video links).
3. Set the sort order to random.
4. Place the block on whichever page you need it."

I have been unable to make it work. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why it is not working?
I want the slideshow to appear in sidebar second.
Also, in configure where I tell the blocks only to appear on the listed pages, does it want "" or "postdoctoral-students2". I have tried both....
thank you,


btw - I don't know how how to "use Javascript to control image visibility" Are there any suggestion on where to see how to do that? ty
