Slideshow on node level in Drupal?
Posted on 2014-12-01
On my Drupal site I want to create a kind of slideshow on node level. I have a content type with a single image field, but this field can hold multiple images.
When a node of that content type is show I would like to show only the first image at full size; the rest of images are shown as thumbnails. When the visitor clicks on one of the thumbnails the initial large image should be replaced by the thumbnail image.
Two bonuses are possible:
- the images of node cycle like in a slideshow
- the large image is shown even larger in colorbox when the visitor clicks on it.
I use Views Slideshow a lot to achieve a similar behavior but then the images are saved in several nodes with the same content type.
With only the Colorbox module I come close to my goal. I can show the large image and the thumbnails, but when the user clicks on one of the thumbnails the original large picture is not replaced. De thumbnail picture is shown in a colorbox and that is not what I want.
Do you have any ideas how my day can be saved? Thanks in advance.
