I have a views slideshow enabled, and cycling through the right number of images. However, I'd like to have a pager consisting of 'Content:Title'. So I went into my views and clicked: 'Format:Settings', and selected 'Top Widgets:Pager'. Since the 'Pager Type' was 'fields', I selected 'Content:Title' from 'Pager Fields', and finally clicked 'Apply (this display)'. After saving the entire view, the pager is still not being displayed.
I have one views template file that overrides the 'Row style output': 'views-view-fields--coolView--block-2.tpl.php'. But, I think this template file is independent of the pager, since the view is displaying correctly, with the exception of this pager.
The corresponding HTML outputs the following:
<div class="views-slideshow-controls-top clearfix">
<strong><div class="views-slideshow-pager-fields widget_pager widget_pager_top views_slideshow_pager_field views-slideshow-pager-field-processed" id="widget_pager_top_spotlight-block_2">
As you can see, nothing is being rendered between the tags.
