Views Slideshow

#D7CX: I pledge that Views Slideshow will have a full Drupal 7 release on the day that Drupal 7 is released, or on the day that Views is release for Drupal 7, whichever comes last.

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.

Potential uses

  • News item slideshow (such as the title, image and teaser of the last 5 news articles submitted)
  • The Last X number of X submitted (images, videos, blog entries, forum posts, comments, testimonials, etc.).
  • Rotate any image, based on any filters you can apply in views.
  • Hottest new products for any ecommerce drupal site.
  • Rotate contact links, share links, etc.
  • Heck, you could rotate entire nodes, categories, image galleries, etc. I wouldn't suggest it, but you have that power.
  • Its also a great space saver. Places where you had multiple images or multiple items such as RSS feeds or category listings can now be presented in a slideshow.

The possibilities are really endless, as the more ways you can think of to categorize and add to views, the more you can rotate.
