Slick view

Slick view is a module which provides new display style to views called Slick Carousel. For this, ‘Views UI’ module is not required. If we need to customize slick slider then we can use Views UI.


Slick views: Composer requires drupal/slick_views

This will install

  1. Slick views
  2. Slick (core slick module)
  3. Slick UI

Slick UI is for providing UI for slick configuration, Slick Views requires slick.

Go to extend and install Slick views and slick.

If we need to configure slick then we need to install Slick UI module. After installing this module we get an item ‘slick’ in configuration page under media tab.

Creation of slider using slick view

To create slider using view.


  • Add needed fields for slider in the ‘fields’ section.

  • Now we need to configure the slick carousel

  1. We already selected ’slick carousel’ in ‘format’.
  2. Click on settings. Now we are going to discuss basic settings.


  1. Vanilla slick:

    Check only if we selected ‘Content’ in Format >Show section. This can be used when slick features cannot satisfy the needs. Now we keep it unchecked.

  2. Option set:

    We can select predefined option sets from this drop-down. Option sets are sets of configurations which are created and saved. Option sets can be created under Admin > Configuration > Slick.

    This increases re-usability of a set of configurations. This will also provide a large number of options for customizing the slider. Keep it as default.

  3. Skin main:

    Here we can select different skins for the slider. Skins are layouts for sliders with CSS. Some options depend on skins.

    We are now selecting ‘default’ skin for getting a simple basic slider.

  4. Main stage:

    select the main background or image field. Select the image field.

  5. Title:

    Select the title field.

  6. Layout:

    layouts can be used to specify the slide and caption alignment.

  7. Captions fields:

    Check needed caption fields. We are selecting ‘title’.

  8. Override main optionset:

    If we checked this box, then we can override some features which are configured in main option set like dots, arrows, autoplay, infinite loop etc.

  • Place view in a region.

    Go to Admin>Structure >Block layout

    Place our block into a region.

Checkout the slider, it should be working..

We have added a few new modules to our site recently. Drupal Technical StumbleThis Sean (not verified) access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 06:01 Hi there, I uploaded the files, enabled the modules to use SU, and now I see the link, but there is no icon... How can I fix this? Thanks, Sean webmaster access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 06:01 In reply to Icon doesn't show by Sean (not verified) What do you see when you view the source? Search for stumblethis_button and you should be able to see the code for the image and the URL. Then you should be able to troubleshoot from there.

Most webmasters do not realize this, but a lot of the content on lot of websites can be accessed from multiple URLs. A simple example would be where and leads to the same page. This is a fatal mistake in Search Engine Optimization and search engines penalize you for duplicate content. The correct configuration would be where the above two urls will lead you to the same page but will redirect you to with a 301 (Moved permanently) status which will not result in search engines penalizing the page. It is very easy to configure 301 redirects using Apache .htaccess file and the process is the same for a Drupal installation also.

I'm on Apache 2.0 and using the following lines in my httpd.conf file: RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^xxxxxxxxxx\.com$ [NC] RewriteRule ^(.*)$$1 [L,R=301] When I go to, I get (as expected). However, when I go to (it's a Drupal site), I get a 404 thrown and the URL changes to Same thing with Any suggestions? I want to run without Drupal's .htaccess file (instead incorporating these calls into my httpd.conf file). webmaster access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 06:01 In reply to Rewrite including filesystem path by Anonymous (not verified) I think the problem is with the base path which results in the redirection to /var/www/ part. The best approach I would think is to start with drupal htaccess and then strip out parts and move to httpd SNVC (not verified) access_time 31 Jul 2021 - 06:01 This is definitely a good guide.
