I am trying to create a gallery like this.

It's been a while since I worked on a D6 site I am sure I have done this before on a few 2/3 year old websites.

However, when I try configuring Views to generate my image gallery I don't get a slideshow style option. I have attached an image to show the View configuration area to see what I mean.

Can anyone help me with this, please?

  • Have you installed the views slideshow module? – 4life Aug 13 '13 at 10:11
  • Yes. Along with cTool, Views and library – sisko Aug 13 '13 at 10:13
  • It's looking like you have Views 2 installed, so, make sure you have the right Views Slideshow module installed as there is one for Views 2 and another for Views 3. – Jimajamma Aug 13 '13 at 13:03
  • @Jimajamma: Thank you. I found that to the issue earlier on after hours of looking. If you provide it as an answer I will be happy to mark it as correct to your credit – sisko Aug 13 '13 at 13:12

It's looking like you have Views 2 installed, so, make sure you have the right Views Slideshow module installed as there is one for Views 2 and another for Views 3 per the Views Slideshow Module page on drupal.org:

Requirements

  • Views Slideshow 2.x requires Views 2.
  • Views Slideshow 3.x requires Views 3.

I ran into a related issue when troubleshooting a Drupal 6 site that had been recently upgraded to a newer version of views and views slideshow. In the process, the existing slideshows had stopped working.

The problem was that Views Slideshow 2.x for Drupal 6 was changed from the earlier versions and the new version (6.x-2.4) requires you to also enable one of two sub-cmodules: Views Slideshow: SingleFrame or Views Slideshow: ThumbnailHover in order for it to work. Here's the relevant section of the Views Slideshow 6.x-2.4 readme file:

Views Slideshow

The Views Slideshow module is a Views Style Plugin that can be used to output Views in a jQuery slideshow.

There are currently 2 modes:

SingleFrame

In SingleFrame mode slideshows are output as single elements and controls can be displayed as numbered links or thumbnails of individual fields.

ThumbnailHover

In ThumbnailHover mode slideshows are output as node teasers or full nodes. The controls for advancing the slideshow are nodes too.

Further details about each can be found within their respective directories.

I enabled SingleFrame and set it up in the view and the slideshow worked again.
