How to create an Advanced slideshow with multiple imagefield images in a node

This tutorial gives step by step instructions how to create an advanced slideshow, with multiple imagefield images, inside the node you create.

Creating slideshow functionality
Creating the functionality for advanced slideshows with multiple imagefields is done following these steps:

  1. Install required modules.
  2. Create node gallery content type with imagefield.
  3. Create node gallery content to show.
  4. Create node gallery view.
  5. Embed node gallery view in a node template

Note: You can also use an existing content type and just add the imagefield to upload multiple images and show these images as an advanced dynamic display block slideshow inside the nodes of the existing content type.

Creating a slideshow node

You can create a user role (e.g. slideshow editor) and give users who are allowed to create slideshows in their nodes the role slideshow editor.

The steps a user has to do, to create a slideshow are:

  1. Creates a node gallery node.
  2. Upload the images to the node.
  3. Add a title and a description to the images.
  4. Save the node and the slideshow will be there.

  4. Click Add instance button.

Configure the block(ddblock node gallery slideshow):

There are two ways to configure the block:

  1. Navigate to Administer > Site building > Block, find the block you made in the disabled region and configure.
  2. Navigate to Administer > Site configuration > Dynamic display block, find in the list of block instance you have the block you just made and configure.

In the Create and configure instance tutorial page you can find information how to configure the instance .

Download and install Dynamic display block themes:

Note: If you already have the dynamic display block free themes installed in your drupal installation you don't need to do this steps.

In the Dynamic display block themes tutorial page you can find more information how to install the free ddblock themes in your drupal installation.

Download dynamic display block free themes at the Download page.

Add the instance to the node-[***content-type_name***].tpl.php:

  1. Create a copy of the node.tpl.php file in the theme you use, which is probably in sites/all/themes/[***your_theme_name***] (e.g sites/all/themes/mygarland).
  2. Save the node.tpl.php template as node-[***content-type_name***].tpl.php, in this case using the default content type from this tutorial this should be name as node-node_gallery.tpl.php
  3. Add this following code after <?php print $content ?> in the node-node_gallery.tpl.php file
    <?php
    print '<br /><h1>Related images<h1><br />';
    $block = module_invoke('ddblock', 'block', 'view','[BLOCK_NUMBER]');
    print $block['content'];
    ?>

    Note: If you want the slideshow above the node content, place the code before <?php print $content ?>.

  4. Change [BLOCK_NUMBER] to the block number of the advanced Dynamic display block, so the code example becomes:
    <?php
    $block = module_invoke('ddblock', 'block', 'view','1');
    print $block['content'];
    ?>

    Note:You can find the number of the block when you hover on the configure link in the block administration page.
  5. Save the node.
  6. Add if statement to the preprocess function:

    Note:Add another if statement in both preprocess function for the view you created. In this case we assume that you already had preprocess functions. The following preprocess function code is provided for the default node_gallery_slideshow view and node gallery field being added in the default content type.

    Download preprocess_function_for_node_gallery.zip at the download page and add the if statement code in both preprocess function in your template.php file.

    Information on how to troubleshoot, have a look at the Preprocess functions page.

    You can also watch the DDblock - Advanced Dynamic Display Block Slideshow Video Tutorial (2009) for more detailed instruction on preprocess functions.

advanced slideshow with multiple imagefield

While coding many software engineers face issues of how to create an advanced slideshow with multiple imagefield images in a node. This tutorial is so good for us to use for making things easy in our daily work. Also here http://www.queensland-assignment.com/ I read about the best ideas that helps the developers to find the best platforms like this.

Slideshow for multiple image fields within a single node

I have to setup a content type allowing users to create their own slideshow, by uploading their images into multiple image fields within a single node (each node define a slideshow). Then the node has to "automatically" display the multiple image fields as a slideshow. Just like lightbox do, in fact, but in the html flow instead of in a overlay.

I tried to find the best choice using this sliders comparison : http://drupal.org/node/418616
I tested "fancy slide" that do it almost, but after creating a new node and uploading all the images, users still need to define and setup a new slideshow for this new node, and that of course, each time a new node is created. That is not what I want.

Then I felt down on this tutorial that seemed a possible solution (this is what it is for btw), and indeed, it is a bit heavy to setup, but once setup is done, there is nothing else to do, only upload images and it works as I wanted. It is very efficient, many thanks for it.

But in my case I wanted to use prev-next mode. And the prev-next links are displayed but links are not working ... did I miss something ?
Here is a link to my test page : http://mariedelafon.com/drupal-6/fr/work/dessins-de-je-sais-plus-qui

I wanted also not to automatically run the slideshow (just use prev-next links to browse). Is there any setting for this ?

Another thing is I don't want to resize the images to a constant container size. I want to display images as they are, according to the imagecache preset I applied to the field (resizing images to a maximum width/height instead of a fixed width/height). I don't want vertical images to be stretched to fit the horizontal frame of the slideshow container.
Is there a way to setup ddblock for that ?

Or maybe ddblock is not quite appropriate for all that purpose... if not, please let me know and also if you have a suggestion for a maybe less powerfull but more dedicated module for that ?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Slideshow for multiple image fields within a single node

Answer on your issues:

1.) prev next pager.
Probably you use an older version of the slideshow themes with a newer version of the ddblock module. the id for the prev/next (id="prev2") is changed to (class="prev"), same for next pager-item.

2.) not automatically run slideshow
You can set the timeout for the slideshow to 0, this way is will not slide automatically

3.) Image sizes
Don't know what exactly the requirements are here, but for flexible sizes you would need to change the css of the images in the slideshow theme.

Thanks for your answers

Thanks for your answers :
1) Indeed, after uploading the genuine themes, it works !
2) Works well too
3) Yes, I realised that what I need is just a more basic theme with no image resizing. And that can indeed be achieved by creating my own theme (ddblock-cycle-block-content-mybasictheme.tpl.php and mybasitheme/ddblock-cycle-mybasictheme.css) ... perfect !
Thanks a lot.

Drupal 7 alternate text and views

In drupal 7 seems that the optional title- and alt-fields of an image can not be shown in views, as a consequence it can't be mapped in the Dynamic display block configuration, Can you suggest any workaround, to make title and description to be displayed in a node multiple imagefield environment?

Preprocess functions

I'm not very well versed in PHP so I'm not sure where in the preprocess functions this additional code for the node_gallery should be placed. Perhaps someone could help me out? Thanks.

Re: Preprocess functions

You can search this site and the issue queue of the module to find similar questions and answers:

examples:
http://ddblock.myalbums.biz/node/839
http://ddblock.myalbums.biz/node/1795
http://ddblock.myalbums.biz/node/916

Hope this helps you further.

_node_gallery code

Sorry ignore the last comment I made -- beautiful code works like a charm.

_node_gallery code

Just wanted to make a note that your posted code for _node_gallery preprocessor function contains some syntax errors. Though the logic works the syntax errors are very basic, func brackets-- maybe characters got lost when you were converting to txt.

How about making it a CCK widget

thanks for article - I will try to do it

can you please in how to convert this idea to CCK widget

as this way too much time and effort

Re: How about making it a CCK widget

If making a as you call it: "a CCK widget", is more easy and quicker to make, please let me know how I do that?
I am very interested in other, quicker and easier ways.

ddblock with imagefield_extended displayed inside node ?

Hello
as you said :
Note: You can also use an existing content type and just add the imagefield to upload multiple images and show these images as an advanced dynamic display block slideshow inside the nodes of the existing content type.
Is there a way to use ddblock + imagefield_extended ( http://drupal.org/project/imagefield_extended )
to set for each image fields for
- main title
- pager title
- text to display
- url link
- button text
something that will work like a basic slideshow inside the node itself without the need to create view / block and just need to add some code in the content template to display the slide ?
thanks

RE: ddblock slideshow with imagefield_extended

Thank you for your question.

Did not know the imagefield_extended module existed, but surely one to look at in combination with ddblock.

No direct answer but will let you know when I tried it out and know some more.

Thanks again.

hope we'll see soon some application

to make a Basic Content Slideshow from multiple imagefield in same node :)

somethink like the setting to display lightbox2 in cck display field widget but that will allow ddblock as a target

Displaying in node with Tapestry theme

Tapestry theme does node use node.tpl.php so where do i place the code?

Thanks

Larry

Re: Displaying in node with Tapestry theme

Whenever a theme does not provide a specific default template file, the theming engine (phptemplate, in this case) provides a 'default template' for use. You can find the engine's default template files in the themes/engines/phptemplate folder of your drupal install. You should copy the node.tpl.php file from this folder into your theme folder, and then modify this copy.

This is a copy of the answer in issue: http://drupal.org/node/241559

In your case copy the node.tpl.php file to your theme
Create the node-node_gallery.tpl.php file and add the code for the slideshow

Hope this helps you further, please let me know.

How do I receive the node's ID in the view when I use a panel?

Thanks for the great module!

I followed the steps and got it working, but I want to display the node in a panel on my frontpage. Just the teaser, which is then the slide show without the article. Clicking on "Read More" button shall then deliver the whole content.

This fails, because in views, "return arg(1)" does not return anything if the node is displayed in a panel pane. So I need the node's id that called the dynamic display block.

I tried the following:

  1. in the default argument code, I inserted "global $node;", but that was NULL
  2. in the node template, I defined a new variable $node_id, but that wasn't available in the default argument code neither.

Any suggestions how to implement that? Thanks a lot!

very good!

very good!

Drupal has evolved in a way

Drupal has evolved in a way that there is not really a need for modules like Panels or Content Template anymore. ConTemplate I use for reference but no need to actually have it running/installed on your production site. You have way more control and flexibility by simply using node-custom.tpl.php and page-custom.tpl.php files.
Example:
Use an e.g. grid.css file for any type of content display. Your node/page content can be all over the page in any position. Don't need no Panels here.
