Views Slideshow

With the poorly-supported and somewhat risky rotating banner module dropping out of favour how sweet it was to discover the Views Slideshow module. This offers better configurability to the end user, something the rotating banner module could never provide.

Not easy to configure by any means, but there are a number of tutorials out in the wild, not least of all this one; nice one ciril! Good enough even to forego his excellent screencast.

As of now (end of October 2011) you can see an implementation of Views Slideshow in action at the top of this page. Wahoo! :)
