I want to create a slideshow in the front page. the slide show must have banner image of particular content type of recent nodes. how should i achieve this? should i create a view and theme it?
you can use very options:
- Create view with the slider content and theming tpls adding slick.js fe. as block or node to display only in frontpage
- Add carousel module (there are many modules..carousel bootstrap, flexslider...) and create new view of this type with the slider content as block and display this block in frontpage .
Thankfully i found a soution and here's what I did. I was given the HTML of the carousal. 1. I made a view in the drupal admin panel. 2. Format as table and feild and disable all the default classes. 3.select one of style output in themeing information on the bottom left of the admin view. 4. Make a tpl. 5. Put the HTML in for each(for the divs/ classes which repeat) loop. And the divs which don't repeat put them out of for each loop.
