I want to have a views slideshow as the following:

  • Two content types which one has image field and the other has video field.
  • I need to have two pagers for the slideshow, one pager for content type (image) and one for content type(video).

I searched for a solution but i couldn't fine one, also tried to make the pager as a views then using views field view module but no luck.

This photo will explain what i looking for: enter image description here

Any tips?

  • at present no module have this option, you have to create a new with the help of node gallery module – Bala Sep 21 '13 at 18:28
  • As I'm looking at this, I wonder how you imagine the auto advance working. Generally speaking, the pager is a queue for the main area, you effectively have 2 queues driving it and I'm curious how that would work. Either way I really suspect this would be custom work – Sean Reiser Sep 21 '13 at 21:21

You could do this using three views.

  1. Make the center part of the screen a view which uses a URL argument to know which node to pull the image/video from.

  2. Make the listing of possible photos a view. Make each link to view #1 and passes in the node id.

  3. Make the listing of possible videos a view. Make each link to view #2 and passes in the node id.

To put all three views on one page you have several options. You could use the module Panels or make each view a block and put them into different regions.

  • Sorry but what you mean about "Make each link to view #1 and passes in the node id." ? – abd Sep 22 '13 at 9:20
  • I created 2 views one for the center part and the second for video pager, when the url change with the new nid the views slideshow does not change the content. – abd Sep 22 '13 at 12:44
  • You need to add an "Views Argument" to the slideshow. drupal.org/node/54455. – Thomas4019 Sep 23 '13 at 10:32
