Slideshows with NodeQueue

Here's an interesting alternative to all the heavy slideshow modules out there...

The tutorial I used is over on Ronan's (Dark Teddy, excellent name!) site. Basically the recipe is a combination of NodeQueue , which I have been meaning to try out and finally got a chance, ImageCache of course to size the images, and some custom php and javascript, thank you Ronan!

There was one change I had to make to get it to work, I split the php call to the js and slideshow up. So the drupal_add_js() function was moved to the template.php file, which is supposed to work better as far as calling scripts into the page.

Update Feb 4th '09:

I updated NodeQ today and the slideshow broke, the function name was changed, see: http://drupal.org/node/367571

The fix is to change "nodequeue_nodes(#)" to "nodequeue_view_nodes(#)"
