This module provides a draggable slider as a control widget for the Views Slideshow module. The slider is both a control and display element, dragging the slider causes the slideshow to jump forward (or backward), it automatically advances when the slideshow cycles.
The Drupal 7 branch is actively maintained and is compatible with Views Slideshow 7.x-3.x and no longer requires the jQuery UI module. If you need the 6.x branch to be compatible with Views slideshow 6.x-3.x feel free to contact me.
The older 6.x-2.x version is no longer actively developed (patches are still accepted of course). It is compatible with Views Slideshow 6.x-2.x and also requires jQuery Update 6.x-2.x and the stable version of jQuery UI (download the stable 1.7.x version from the jQuery UI website).
