    Rotating Banners In Drupal Rotating Banners In Drupal Presentation Transcript

    • @chillin411 Rotating Banners in Drupal (there is more than one way to do it)
    • There are actually ~15 ways to do it
        • Content Glider
        • Dynamic display block
        • Views Rotator
        • Views Cycle
        • Views Slideshow
        • Views Slideshow DD Block
        • Views Slideshow ImageFlow
      • Source: http://drupal.org/node/418616
      @chillin411
        • Featured Content Slider
        • Slider
        • Views Carousel
        • Ajax Slideshow
        • Views Accordian
        • Couloir Slideshow
        • Frontpage Slideshow
        • CCK Multimage
    • What are we dealing with?
        • Nodes
        • View
        • Javascript Plugins
        • Assisting Modules
      @chillin411
    • Nodes
        • Use a separate node type
        • Imagecache will make things easier
        • Node Reference > Link CCK
        • Nodequeue Trigger/Actions solve sorting problems
      @chillin411
    • Views
        • Use relationships to hook into nodequeue and node reference
        • Unstyled fields let you theme with CSS
        • Allows you to export the view – great for features, etc.
      @chillin411
    • Javascript Plugin
        • Drupal includes jQuery
        • Most mature jQuery rotating plugin -> jQuery.cycle
        • Flexibility between jQuery and Drupal/Views -> Views Slideshow
      @chillin411
    • Rotating Banner
        • http://drupal.org/project/rotating_banner
        • D7 only, in alpha release (currently on Drupal Gardens)
        • If you don't need views on your site for anything else, use this on D7, without question
        • Very solid option for D7, especially if it adopts jQueryUI

    • Thanks! @chillin411
