Does OP includes News Slider?

Hello everybody again!

Well, I have to confess that yesterday I quit building a News/Magazine portal with OpenPublish. So I started looking for other solutions and I found many interesting themes working with Joomla but unfortunatly paid subscription (near to $100) stopped me in this way. I realise I can try harder with Drupal and OP specially! :P

Ok, I was trying to include a "slider news" frontpage and previously I read many sites talking about many slider solutions. Fortunatly there is one page resuming everything:

So I gonna start installing Views slideshow ( and Dynamic Display block (

But, first of all I would like to know if someone has used these modules or knows how to implemented with tools of OP.


Views slideshow Installed

We finally install Views Slideshow (Just v2.3 because OP comes with Views 2 - I dont know if Views 3 could crash OP, so Views slideshow v3.x have to wait)

I followed steps indicated by Ryan Szarama and I have my slideshow working BUT I just have some images rotating with a fade effect. How Can I add some Text body to this new slideshow banner?

Hi! This may be a better

Hi! This may be a better question for the Views Slideshow issue queue . You may get a faster answer there.
