Hi Yaz:

Hi Yaz:

You first need to go to the Structure -> Views section and select the View of the Slideshow you want to customize.

Now, each slideshow makes a composition of some fields you would need to unify to use them as a single View showing the same fields from different content types. The "Title field" and the "Image field" is the same for both content types, but you would need to add a " Content: Small Description " to the Article to show the little gray text under the title.

Just start by adding a new content type to the filter and then add the fields. It is a little bit complicated, but once you understand how it was builyt, you will get it.

Bests!

Hi !

Hi !
Ok i understand the principle and i am able to display article image on the slide, the title and everything...thanks for your advice.
I would like to know how i can implement the following feature on the slider :
If it is an article, i want the image link directly to the content (removing the link from the tag)
If it is a portfolio item, i want the image link to the portfolio (just as the tag)
Thanks for taking time to help
Best
Yaz
