I have tried many different ways, from changing my data is formatted to many combinations on the slideshow editor options. It seems there is a bug preventing the slideshow from reading from a field that contains a list of image URLs and displaying a slideshow.
Here is my setup:
I have a Repeating Group which gets its data from an API.
Inside the repeating group, I have a Slideshow with settings:
Type of list = dynamic
Type of image = image
Data source = “Current cell’s API Unit record” + " 's fields imageList (which is a list of image URLs, data reads it [“img1.jpg”, “img2.jpg”, etc]).
This theoretically should work but it doesn’t. When you inspect the slideshow in devtools, you see that the slideshow thinks the entire list is one single URL, rather treating it as a list, and creating multiple slides.
