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.

  • 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.

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
