Have a situation, where in responsive Omega subtheme need to create responsive slideshow with only text.
There is some design problem with Views Slideshow: Cycle, which I will not explain here. So, Flexslider is very suitable for this task. My question:

Is it possible to create responsive slideshow with Flexslider in a block with controls prev-next with 100% of width no matter viewport size? How?

Should work just fine. Use the FlexSlider Views module, create your view, add the block display, set the style plugin to "FlexSlider" and start adding items.

If you have any issues, feel free to reopen this issue.

Let me know how it goes!

I still cannot get it working. Got "Style FlexSlider requires an image field to be added."

Ah, that's a bug/remnant from FlexSlider 1.

I am glad, that module maintainer is now informed.
Is the fix on the roadmap?

Yup, it's on the list. But patches are most certainly welcome. I won't be able to fix this more than likely until end of March to mid-April due to client projects.

We want to render full entities in the slider. This basic patch allows me to do so.

I've committed a similar change. We'll try it out and see how it goes.
