Is there a gallery module or any module for making a slider? I really need a slider and a gallery to my site. Help, please!

Build yourself slider and a gallery - you can better customize it for your requirements.
I usually use the slider: bxSlider,
To the gallery: fancybox,

For example to gallery use:

class Gallery extends DataObject
static $db = array (


static $has_one = array (
   'Photo' => 'Image',
'HomePage' => 'HomePage' //Page where the gallery will be available
   function getCMSFields() {
return new FieldSet(
new UploadField('Photo')

And in Page from has_many (in my example HomePage)

class HomePage extends Page {


static $many_many = array(
'Gallerys' => 'Image'

public function getCMSFields() {
   $fields = parent::getCMSFields();


      $fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Gallery', new UploadField('Gallerys', 'Gallery'));
return $fields;   

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {   
    public function init() {

      Requirements::javascript("mysite/javascript/option.bxSlider.js"); //option for bxslider

in template use

<% loop Gallerys %>
   <a rel="gallery" href="$URL">$SetWidth(80)</a>
<% end_loop %>

Sorry for my bad English

Thank you, Craftnet!
Unfortunately, I'm not a PHP programmer, but I'll try your method.
