However, I am unable to achieve the desired effect because I am new at Drupal 7.
I have tried the following steps for implementing the photo gallery. Please help me out by pointing my mistake.
1- Identify block regions. These are as follows:
2- Make a content type with Image type as the field as follows:
3- Then I placed it inside the Slide show block provided by the template as shown in the figure.
4- I even made a view and placed it inside the same Slide show block provided by the template but I am not getting the slider that I want.The previous screen shot shows the view as well.
At best, I get a picture on the front page when I choose it as 'published to front page'.
So, does this mean I cannot implement a photo slider this way? And my only option then is to use a contributed module for a photo slider?
If the latter is true then what use is the template other than a basic mark up for html and css?
Lastly, is the solution to my problem that I use a contributed photo slider module and then place it in one of the pre-defined blocks provided by the theme?
Appreciate your help on this.
