After the update to Slick Views version 8.2.3, the slide show in my website's banner had a lot of blank space between it and the rest of the content on the page. The answer was in the module's issue queue at https://www.drupal.org/project/slick_views/issues/3135699.
Specifically the answer was in this post:
Thank you for the guidance. In my case, the view I needed to edit was called Front Page Slideshow. So, a custom name, not google-able. Once there, clicking on the Content: Slideshow Image link in the Fields section took me to the screen where a Formatter could be chosen, finally. And, just as you said, configuring it to Aspect Ratio: Fluid fixes the whitespace issue. Now I can take that bit of code out of the module source. One less thing to worry about.
And I agree, this is probably the best way to do it. I guess it's just the nature of Drupal (or any heavily plugin-dependent CMS) that configuration screens will be buried such that finding them can be difficult, particularly if you didn't build the site yourself.
To expand a bit on the answer:
- Go to the view in question.
- Under "Fields", Find "Content:< Image that is used in the slideshow>.
- Click on the image name.
- In the configuration dialog that appears:
- Select Blazy as the formatter.
- Select Fluid as the Aspect Ratio.
- Save everything.
