It would be awesome to have a dynamic slider component with the ability to filter the number of slides, ordering them, etc.
Most of my clients who ask for a blog, are asking for this basic feature. Adding a slider at the end of each post that they can customize (add a pic, a title and a link on each slide).
In the interim I did this with jQuery cycle with relative ease. Create a collection with the images. Output the collection and then apply jQuery cycle to the divs containing the content.
Yes! I really need this as an option, especially for those clients who are artists or photographers and need to have control over their imagery through a CMS.
So important! The lack of it is the main reason I can't use Webflow still even though all of the other opportunities.
Couldn't you build this with collections / dynamic lists already?
Yes and actually this is quite an easy one as Brandon mentioned.
JUST MAKE IT POSSIBLE FOR SLIDES TO BE POPULATED AS COLLECTION LIST!
Then we can use sorting, filtering, conditional visibility and all that stuff that has been build already.
It is indeed crucial... Took me long enough to convince a client to have a Webflow website, and now they're asking for a CMS editable slider inside a collection page, and I'm struggling to find a solution for this.
This would be very useful.
+1 very important for my clients too
Would really love this
I hope this function can be added very soon because its pretty practical in normal usage.
This really needs to be added as a feature. Adding a new item to a collection needs to result in a new slide being created in the assigned template with content populated. I have so many projects where I've had to skirt around this issue, it seems so basic and it's been on the wish list since 2015! Please guys!
Their silence on this issue speaks volumes....
Hi. I have managed to get a slider working dynamically from a Collection's images.
Add a Collection List a slider (just dropped it onto it), it shows up in the hierarchy under Slide 1 (see attached slide-1). I then assigned the relationships of each slide in the Element Settings (attached slide-2) and then tweaked slide image alignment in the Style settings.
This has worked quite well so far, but I am working with a set number of images per Collection, and there is no option to add more per item in a Collection unless it's done globally across the Collection.
Hope that helps some. (It'd be great if Webflow could get it working for the Lightbox tool though!)
This would be fantastic. I a blog post page(work fine) with a slider with Featured Items. The slider is a pain to manage as each slide has its' own collection and filter. The ability of the Slider to show a different post on each slide would be so much easier to setup/ manage.
This really needs to be addressed. I am seriously considering moving to a different platform because of this. My client wants to be able to add images to the page slider and have any number of images between 3-30. I've managed to create a CMS slider but it has only a set number of images. Come on Webflow - when will this be solved?
MAKE THIS HAPPEN PLEASE
I keep asking about this too. The ability to add a slider to a collection template. I keep having people recommend the adding a collection to each slide, and then limiting each slide to 1 of 12, 2 of 12, etc. But the issue with that is it doesn't allow for a dynamic numbering of slides. Some slideshows may only have 2 images, and others may have 50. We need a way for Sliders to operate based on a collection list without going in and hacking a number of each collection per slide. Does that make sense?
Is there any update on this topic? This feature would be highly requested.
Please, this feature could be a basic building bloc for creating crazy things! :)
please fo the community,
Need this soooo bad!!! C'mon Webflow please!
Today i made my first webflow. Ran into this problem and realized how it was not possible. Huge frown in my face, something as necessary can't be done with the slider. Guess will have to stick with a static slider.
would love this feature!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now with the Ecommerce this is a MUST have. CMS Slider is needed to be able to present your products
I'm using cycle2 JS but would love this baked into Webflow. Also ability to choose various transitions between slides and timing of transitions/slide delay.
Yes please this would be super helpful
Big Vote for this feature as well. It's crucial for things like testimonial sliders, where new testimonials would be easy for clients on their own by simply filling in a form. Thanks
I'm trying to push my clients towards Webflow and I can see them wanting this feature.
I have so many clients asking to have a slider that has a varying number of slides and they would like to update them from a collection list. However many items are in the list is how many slides there are. This seems super simple to implement from the Webflow side.
I mean... Why not?
Yes please, and the sooner the better. Would be a powerful extension to CMS and E-commerce.
I will like to use this feature to show different photos of a product inside the new e-commerce, the same as Etsy. Here is an example: https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/231593297/scented-soy-wax-votive-candle-with?ref=shop_home_feat_1
I have a client that definitely needs this on his site. Just started building his site on Webflow and the collections are working great for all his listings UNTIL I got to the part of needing to show 10-30 slider images that are completely different for each listing and there are 50-75 listings. I'm trying to find a workaround for this, but his site might not be able to work on Webflow yet. It would be great if the slider would also allow groups of photos to be added all at once instead of add slide, add image, and repeat.
Now it's also a problem for me and my client demand...
Come on guys, let's get this feature added. Of course there are work arounds but this is a really common one that would be amazing to have native to Webflow.
Looking forward to this feature as we have lots of uses for it. Please make sure to add Auto-Play for the slides.
Agree this feature is needed. Auto-play would be nice too.
I also need this for a blog homepage that we ported over from Wordpress. I want the slider to show the latest 5 blog posts, but no way to do it with the current slider and add collection items. The other solution with pagination is hacky and not very good. This is a basic feature that would be a great addition.
Just wanted to add my voice to the chorus, too.This is an essential feature that almost every eCommerce or portfolio website will have and it's absolutely crazy this is still in development 2 years after this wishlist item was created.I'm currently building an architectural website for my company, and this feature is a core functionality of our portfolio pages and I'm currently unable to do it without having a blank last slide.https://ar-arch.webflow.io/projects/quickswood-primrose-hillIt would also be awesome to be able to make some slides CMS driven and some have static content (for example, I'd love to be able to show a slide with other related projects once the client reached the end of the slider).
Just going to voice-out a use-case scenario for required for 3 of my websites.
This product ( https://www.online-lubricants.co.uk/products-collection/total-nevastane-aw-22 ) like many others, has only 1 image. But there are lots of other products that have 2 or 3 images. The images are displayed as background images on slides.
The slider is set to Infinite repeat slides. And unfortunately, when you choose a product with a single image (like the one mentioned above), the slider component displays blank slides.
Conditional Visibility doesn't work here. But if the slider component was dynamic, then it would.
YES ! it would be a natural way to display content.
This essential feature is very important for my sites. If this is not implemented, i can't use this cool tool, sorry
@here who wants to see this happen?
This is an essential element! Please make this happen before i die...
