Slick Carousel Problems after Update to 8.2.3

Submitted by D2D on Wed, 05/27/2020 - 14:48

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


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:


  1. Go to the view in question.
  2. Under "Fields", Find "Content:< Image that is used in the slideshow>.
  3. Click on the image name.
  4. In the configuration dialog that appears:
    1. Select Blazy as the formatter.
    2. Select Fluid as the Aspect Ratio.
    3. Save everything.
