I have created a content type with some text and image fields. I want to display its images as a slideshow below text fields in view node page of this content type. How can I do it ? Is view slideshow module suitable for this purpose ? or I have to use other module ?

I am working in Drupal 6.


Views Slideshow should be more than enough for what you need.


I meant View field, not Views Field View - sorry.

Viewfield provides a field that holds a reference to a View and renders it whenever the entity containing the field is displayed.

  • Should I create two views? – hd. Nov 9 '12 at 10:54
  • You shouldn't have to. You should just be able to hide the images on the View mode of the node, and then display the slideshow either in a block below it, render it in your template, or use the other module I've listed. – Chapabu Nov 9 '12 at 11:28
  • how can I set images of each node in its viewfield when the node information is entered by user? (user uploaded images within add node page) – hd. Nov 9 '12 at 11:39

Thank you to anyone answered me. I solved my problem with Lightbox2 module. It adds a new option in 'display fields' of content type field management.

Views slideshow is probably the answer but a lot of people struggle with its setup so you might want to follow this http://www.brightwebsitedesign.com/how-to-install-views-slideshow-module-on-drupal7

  • Asker clearly states he is using D6 - this post is for D7. – Chapabu Nov 9 '12 at 9:47
  • Oops, slight oversight ;-) just wanted to let you know a guide to setting this up is required, well done Chapabu. – Alex Gill Nov 9 '12 at 9:49

    Easily done :) Would be useful to leave it in case anyone on D7 sees this post though! – Chapabu Nov 9 '12 at 9:52
