Advanced: DMXzone Nivo Slider from Dynamic Image Source

In this tutorial we will show you how to create a fully responsive image slider that uses dynamic database source for its images.
*You can also check out the video.

How to do it

1. We created a data source, using HTML5 Data Bindings. In the database we stored the path, title, description and link for each of our images. Let's add DMXzone Nivo Slider 3 (2) from the insert panel (1).

2. Select dynamic source radio button (1) and select your data source from the data source menu (2). Now, we select the repeating element of our data source. Click the HTML5 Data Bindings value icon (3).

3. Expand the data source tree (1) and select the repeating element of your data source (2). The repeating element is wrapped in square brackets. When you're done, click OK.

4. Now let's select the data element that stores the paths of our images. Click the HTML5 Data Bindings value icon.

5. In our data source it is called: path. Select it (1) and click the OK button (2).

6.  We do the same with the rest of the fields that we need to use.

7. Set up the appearance and transitions of the slider in the advanced tab and click OK.

8. Let's preview the result.
