Hi charmingduck,

Thomas4019 put you on the right track (it seems you were already on it).  views_slideshow supports a number of plug-ins, but (to the best of my knowledge) none that have the exact behavior you describe (with arrows).

But perhaps consider an alternate approach?  For instance, using ImageFlow with Views Slidehow (http://drupal.org/project/views_slideshow_imageflow) you can have an iPod-like scroll through a very large number of images that is very easy to navigate.

HTH,

The module, Views Slideshow, http://drupal.org/project/views_slideshow, lets you have slideshow of nodes. So with that you can do pretty much whatever you want.

im using that,,,,

but

i have 15 spotlights now and I make thumbnails of them on the bottom, it's just too many and is there a way to make a arrow, and only show maybe 5 thumbnails at a time, when people click on the arrow, it takes them to the next 5 thumbnails?

thanks, but it probably wont look very nice on the home page, as a spotlight, i think.

But maybe we can tweak it and suit my needs?

I would strongly advise against attempting to "tweak" Views_Slideshow_ImageFlow -- the AJAX logic is very involved...  Thomas4019 may have some ideas here...

Another tack: I believe there may be a way to use the original Views_Slideshow with the AJAX paging that's built into basic Views.  You'll have to experiment.  You *will* need to "tweak" Views' default paging to get arrows to the left/right of your images, but the underlying logic of AJAX-paging in Views should support this.

I concur w/ Thomas4019.  I haven't worked with that specific Views_Slideshow plugin submodule, but I've worked extensively with some of the others, including some spelunking through the source code, and I've found them to be of fairly high quality.

Of course it's always a good idea to take a quick glance at the outstanding issues for a module:

http://drupal.org/project/issues/views_slideshow_galleria?categories=All

If none of these open issues directly affect you (and based on your description of what you're trying to do, it doesn't seem like they affect you), then you're good to go.

sounds like a big issue, is it?

I can't say for sure if this is big-big issue without downloading lots of code (which I don't have time to do today).  But I did notice the problem occured with the dev release of jquery-update module.  So, odds are good it's just a particularly nasty interaction bug, that may not occur at all if you're using the regular jquery-update module (or not using it at all).

As in all things Drupal, backup -> try -> accept/reject -> move forward (or revert to backups).

At first glance, this seems like a bug so egregious that *no one* could use the module if it were true for most Drupal configurations.  That's why I suspect the jquery-update-dev (or similar) is part of problem.

Sounds peculiar, are you using JQuery Update? There are 200 people currently using Views Slideshow: Galleria.

I would definitely recommend galleria: http://drupal.org/project/galleria
or view galleria as mentioned previously, nothing more easier than this for slideshows
