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.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
