I dont need to display images tho. I have a series of pages all with html extensions that i need to randomly display and manualy scroll thru.

Anyone know how i could edit the DHTML slideshow script to display other pages instead of images?

Welcome to CodingForums new user. One of the main thing that users are generally encouraged to do is to search the forum before posting a question and searching google. I've done the latter for you, click here (http://www.google.com.jm/search?hl=en&q=javascript+slideshow+dynamicdrive).
This site in the link has ALOT of scripts that you can use. If you have problems with them, CodingForum has a DynamicDrive forum (Javascript) to help you out.

Happy reading! :thumbsup:

Humm thats mostly what I had already seen. See if I can give a good example.

I have pages 1.html - 16.html i want to display them in a slideshow the pages have information on cabins for rent in the mountains. Starting with a random cabin would be even better.

Okay... you wanna do a slide show of html pages? Not images? Okay... thing is that one is slightly unconvential to say the least so u might not find a script to do exactly that? Whats ur level of competence? Thats the problem with using or trying to find scripts... If you want to use these scripts, you often times have to supress your creativiy because alot of them tend to lack in flexibility... you can only change the inputs for the most part....

So you're stuck with either using a script out there or programming it on your own. My advice.... if u can't find a script. Keep your idea in mind, and go do some reading until you can do it all by yourself. It'll benefit you more anyday than if you found a script to do it.
I've provide for a link to a tutorial... from Webmonkey... it comes with personal recommendations.... Thau's Javascript Tutorial (http://webmonkey.wired.com/webmonkey/programming/javascript/tutorials/tutorial1.html)

will theoretically work with any content valid within the <div> element, and that includes <object> and <iframe>. Since that is a rather unusual application I have not tested this approach and there may be problems in IE.
You can download evaluation version and try...
