Views Slideshow can be used to create a slideshow of any content (not just images) that can appear in a View. Powered by jQuery, it is heavily customizable: you may choose slideshow settings for each View you create.

Potential uses

  • News item slideshow (such as the title, image and teaser of the last 5 news articles submitted)
  • The Last X number of X submitted (images, videos, blog entries, forum posts, comments, testimonials, etc.).
  • Rotate any image, based on any filters you can apply in views.
  • Hottest new products for any ecommerce drupal site.
  • Rotate contact links, share links, etc.
  • Heck, you could rotate entire nodes, categories, image galleries, etc. I wouldn't suggest it, but you have that power.
  • Its also a great space saver. Places where you had multiple images or multiple items such as RSS feeds or category listings can now be presented in a slideshow.

The possibilities are really endless, as the more ways you can think of to categorize and add to views, the more you can rotate.

Requirements

  • Views Slideshow 2.x requires Views 2.
  • Views Slideshow ThumbnailHover 2.1+ requires Views 2.7+.
  • Views Slideshow 3.x requires Views 3.

There is no upgrade path from views slideshow 2 to views slideshow 3. Also make sure you delete the entire views slideshow 2 folder before installing views slideshow 3.

Unless you use jquery_update module the latest version of jquery cycle won't work for Drupal 6. I recommend you download version 2.88 which you can find here: https://github.com/malsup/cycle/downloads
