Flaw in Dynamic Ajax display script causing slideshow to break
I'm a little saddened by this because I have created an entire page for a non-profit organization around this script and 2 weeks before I am set to go back to school i find out that a main feature (a really wicked slide show which cost them 100$ on my recommendation) appears to be incompatible with this script in it's current state.
The script is the Dynamic Ajax Content script from DynamicDrive.
What occurs is that the slide show works the first time it is visited, however if the user navigates to another link on the page and then decides to re-visit the slide show... it does not function at all. The issue, as it has been described to me by the writers of the slide show, is:
The script has a built-in function that, for efficiency, checks if the scripts being loaded with the page (via loadobjs()) have already been loaded... and if so does not re-download them. I was hoping that this could be modified to accept a variable (such as 'reload()' ) that would force the ajax script to completely re-initialize / clear & re-download the content being loaded. Would this work?
The ajax script is here www.enviromark.ca/head/js/DynamicAjaxContent.js or here http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...jaxcontent.htm (has explanations).
Sorry for the long post... I just really needed to be thorough to make sure that if there was any possibility of fixing this it was addressed.
Thanks a lot :o
Also, if this script really is fatally flawed... any suggestions on achieving the same effect would be greatly appreciated. I am quite fond of the seamless loading of the page
Have you used FF and Firebug to try to see where the scripts are failing.
Using you steps , FF gives the error
If you navigate to the slideshow and open it, then select Info and look at a sub menus contents, then go back to the slideshow you get various errors. Looks like most of them are in BorderFade.js. You can get a little empty square with the black border, or a thin long vertical border, which may or may not grow to around an image that may or may not be there.
Sometimes the border will grow to the right and extend off screen.
In IE you usually end up with one thumbnail image.
I have been trying to migrate the page to using server-side includes instead of the ajax script, so for now i'm going to abandon this thread... however if I can't get that working I will come back.
I have not yet used firebug but will definitely install it now. Thanks a lot for the tip :)
