I'm making my first drupal website and I want to have a image slider on the homepage. I would like there to be a page in the backend where the end-user can upload and choose which images are in the slideshow. I looked at the nivo-slider module but it only allows the creation of one slider and what I really need are two separate sliders one for English and one for French content.

Is there a module that has this functionality already? If I wanted to create something like this myself would that involve making a module or can it be part of my theme's code somehow?

  • Use the power of Drupal luke! You want the slider to be a 'content type', then you can create as many as you want. You should probably use 'field_slideshow' module for this. – Alex Gill May 10 '13 at 14:27

You can use the View Slideshow module and create many blocks of slider from the content you create.

Views Slideshow can be used to create a slideshow of any content (not just images) that can appear in a View. Powered by jQuery, it is heavily customizable: you may choose slideshow settings for each View you create.

  • if you land up with views_slideshow module, might be this module can also be helpful. – arpitr May 10 '13 at 14:47
  • I was able to get this module working.. do I have to create separate slideshows for each language or is there a way I can have one slider that picks the language based on the users language? I set up a slider_image content type that is translatable. When I view my translated slider image on its own I can toggle between the translations but when it is in the slideshow it shows both translated images back to back – Devin Crossman May 10 '13 at 17:53
  • Power of views - you can have one slider, and make views only pick up nodes with language == current site language. – Mołot May 14 '13 at 10:57

If you like the Nivo Slider, use Views Nivo Slider to create multiple Nivo Sliders. While it shows that it only has a development version for drupal 7, I use it and have not found any problems with it.
