I have a slideshow in front page build by with Views and placed by Panels.

Currently i'm using contextual filter based on Nid and end user should enter Nids in Panels pane setting like "6,14,54,98" but it's not user friendly.

I need a list of nodes that end user can select nodes and the list automatically returns Nids.

You should use nodequeue module: https://www.drupal.org/project/nodequeue or entityqueue: https://www.drupal.org/project/entityqueue


  • create queue
  • fill it by nodes (with pretty autocomplete field)
  • create new view based on this queue
  • done

Some instruction for this:

  • That will solve my problem but still it's not user friendly. Users are using in-place editor to manage pages. I'm looking for a solution to let them add a slideshow block and when they press the block setting button at in-place editor they can select some nodes from list of nodes. May 29, 2015 at 21:28

You can use Nodequeue module for this. Quote from its project page:

The Nodequeue module allows users to collect nodes in an arbitrarily ordered list. The order in the list can be used for a any purpose, such as:

  • A block listing teasers for the five top news stories on a site
  • A user’s favorite music albums
  • A group of favorite from which one is randomly displayed

Nodequeue provides a simple drag-and-drop interface to manually order any queue. Additionally, it allows nodes to be added and removed from queues without needing edit permissions to the node. Nodes can be added to queues either from a queue management tab or by links on the node teaser.
