Is there a way to display the latest form entries in a slider? When a user clicks on a slider entry, I would like to see the entry's details page open.

What do you mean when you say "slider"? A slider is a Formidable Pro field type for number ranges.

What are you trying to do exactly?

Sorry about that. I am referring to an image slider and not the numeric slider built into Formidable. Like a table view that leads to a single entry details view except that, instead of a table, an image slider is used. However, the content may not always be image based. Tables are nice for large screens but I sometimes like to use an image slider for display on mobile devices. I'm looking for a way to display latest entries as "mini views" in an slider/carousel format, when clicked, a full view of that entry would be displayed.

Hi Tommy,   You can display the form entries in a view and style it in almost anyway that you like with some custom CSS and JS.   If you want the Form entries to be displayed in a slider / carousel i'd suggest trying something like Flickety:   We built a similar thing (although without the detail link) here:   Hope that helps.
