category slideshow

Hi
I've been watching your views slideshow videos - very useful.

I would like to create one with 'slides' that highlights a node from each category, so for instance I would like the pager to show

Category-1 | Category-2 | Category-3

and then when I click on one of those links the slideshow displays the latest content from that category.

I am not sure how to make each 'slide' come from a different category and how to make the pager select the item from a category.

Advice please? Is it possible with views slideshow?

Hi bigmedia13

Interesting idea, and I do think this is possible.

In this tutorial we explore the idea of a pager with Views Slideshow: www.ostraining.com/blog/drupal/views-slideshow/

Step 1) Add the category as a Field, but set it so that it doesn't display in the slideshow using the "Exclude from display" checkbox
Step 2) The category should be available as a pager
