View Full Version : Slideshow banner things

Jul 21st, 2009, 08:28 PM
Hi, this is probably the wrong section as this might be done with javascript or jquery or something, but I don't know anything about those things. I want to make one of these large banners that cycle through four or five images which are links to other things. They can also be controlled by buttons at the bottom. For example, bbc radio 1 have one on the right side of the main page here


Thing is, I've got no idea what they're called or how to search for a tutorial of how to do it. I tried a few ideas but I mainly only got general image slide shows. So if you could just point me in the direction of one I'd be grateful!

P.S. I've just realised the one on the bbc site is flash - is this the best way of doing it? If so, I can make it in flash no problem, I just assumed that there was a more accessible way to do it than flash
