Views Slideshow

You could use the Views Slideshow module for this. Here is a quote from its project page:

... 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.
  • You could rotate entire nodes, categories, image galleries, etc. I wouldn't suggest it, but you have that power.
  • It's 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.

Further enhancements

Possibly you may want to further extended this with related modules (there are dozens of modules to further enhance views) such as Views Slideshow: Galleria. Here is a quote from that module's project page:

Integrating Galleria with Views Slideshow.

Galleria is a JavaScript image gallery framework built on top of the jQuery library. The aim is to simplify the process of creating professional image galleries for the web and mobile devices.


Another option is to consider the jCarousel module. Here is a quote from its project page:

... This module allows developers and themers to make use of the jCarousel jQuery plugin. It includes a developer API that other modules can use, as well as Views integration in the 2.0 version so that you can turn any list of content or images into a carousel.


  • Built-in Views support.
  • AJAX-loading of additional items as needed.
  • Carousel pager/navigation to jump between multiple pages.
  • Circular wrapping of items.
  • API for direct usage of jCarousel without Views.
  • I tried the Views Slideshow module but it not rendering what I want to achieve…A bit more insight I created a grid view of images and text and I’m wondering if I can use the view I created and import it into the carousel so it can display 9 items in the grid and when I click next it displays another set of items in the grid....any help would be appreciated thank you
