This is the first time I use a CMS, and I'm trying to install nivo slider module into Drupal. I used the following commands

drush dl nivo_slider
drush en nivo_slider -y

Then I added some pictures to the slider but they are displayed without animation

And in the status report I have the following error message

Nivo Slider jQuery plugin Not installed
The Nivo Slider library could not be found.

  • Did you take a look at the readme.txt file in the module?

Nivo Slider Requirements

You need to download the Nivo Slider Plugin and extract it to sites/all/libraries. The extracted folder must be named nivo-slider.

  • The folder name is essential. If downloading the release from GitHub, the folder will be named something like Nivo-Slider-3.2 by default (matching the archive). You must either rename it or extract to your own folder named "nivo-slider".

You have to set the field settings in the Views module; check the format settings.

This is for a view using the Views Nivo Slider module.


This is for a field formatting using the Nivo Slider module.
