Goal: Putting text as an attachment on views slideshow

Theme: Bootstrap

Drupal: 8

Content type: Slideshow which has two fields: image and text

Added two nodes of the content type.

Created a slideshow block using views and bootstrap carousel. Slideshow is working just fine. Slideshow just displays the image/slide field.

Below shows just the views block for slideshow.

enter image description here

Now, I like to put the text field as an attachment (putting the text on top of image in the slideshow) to the views block.

Views > Add > attachment > after that I am lost. I am not sure what setting to use to put the corresponding text field on each image slide.

Below shows I added the attachment in view but when I visit my site, I only see image slideshow and I do not see the text (slide-img) on the slideshow as an attachment.

enter image description here

Please advise.

All you need to do is to add your text field to the "Fields" section of this view. Not as an attachment. As a field.

  • It worked. Thanks. One question. In D7, once I add the fields, I am able to see the fields in views slideshow. In D8, just adding the fields do not work. In addition, I also have to click settings > select both fields in the drop down in the bottom of screen > save and then I see these fields in slideshow. Is it a new feature in D8?

  • @learn4ever – Not one that I know of. But maybe this triggers some cache being rebuild?
