In this video, we'll create a view with both a page and a block display of our featured content

Manage display of teaser

This will be used for our full page display.

    • Label: Hidden
    • Image style: featured_content
    • (optional) Link image to: Content

  • (Continue and edit)
  • (Save)

Let's create some content before we get into the slideshow settings so that we can see the settings in action.

Create Content

  • Go to "Content => Add content => Featured Content" (node/add/featured-content)
  • (I'm going to use the Devel module to generate 5 pieces of Featured Content)
  • (I need to demote all content from the front page. Go to "Content" (admin/content), select all, choose "Demote selected content from front page", click "Update".)
