View Full Version : I need help on a Javascript Slideshow

08-18-2004, 08:45 PM
I would like to have multiple slideshows on my page, that view in a table on the same page. I will list the following requirements.

A. Very limited budget - on SSI
B. Multiple Topics (shown with Links that starts the Slideshow.) I will have a list of slideshows to view.
C. Multiple Images that come from web sites. They will be of various sizes and configurations
D. Ability to set the max-width and max-height so as to align in a table. Must autosize the slide to fit within the table. The table would probably be set to about a 900 width by a 400-500 height.
E. Centering of slides in the table regardless of image size.
F. Configurable borders around the slide
G. Accompanying Text Description above or below each slide, also centered.

I don't want much do I?

I've found several scripts but none that do everything. I can email or private message my web page so that you can see what I'm trying to do. The page is also listed in my profile. The script I'm using there references configurable player and I've centered it, however it's tied to one size image or won't center.

What little I know of javascript is I am learning from modifying scripts to see what they do.

Hope Someone can help - Thanks

As I told you before,
does all of the above...
... ok to be more precise, it leaves the formating up to you, which still qualifies that it "does all of the above"...

I have checked and agree that it will do what I want. Excuse that I'm exploring options without the price tag. If I can't find what I want, I'll be back

You may want to look at beetle's OO Slideshow (http://www.peterbailey.net/dhtml/oo_slideshow.htm) script. You can see his other OO-based scripts here (http://www.peterbailey.net/dev/jsclasses/).

I'll checked out the site - and it's so close. I may play with it and see if I can modify the script for my purposes. I will have about 10 or so slideshows with possibly a 100 pics on one or more of them.

I also want folks to be able to swap pics but I'll probably do that through a CGI Formmail.

I am trying to put together a play/service pack for Campers and Travelers that live on the road. Chat, music, info and slideshows of recreational spots.
