    The module can be achieved quite quickly with the following steps:

    1. Create a module
    2. Create a layout definition for the content query
    3. Create a view and enable the JavaScript for the slider
    4. Some styling
    5. Create a projection - remember to select a different layout to the default one, such as: SliderDetailLarge. Otherwise the content will be displayed as a simple list.
