Re: aro_slideshow

Alas, I tried just slideshow.js by itself originally. I just recently added the prototype and moo js files.

Do you have a version of this online?

Re: aro_slideshow

Oh man… The problem was the Javascript in the linked file was using the old code that didn’t work in Firefox. Please update to the new code (be sure to refresh your browser to make sure you are getting the latest version).

I am big shame…..

Re: aro_slideshow

Okay, I did that and it works on Firefox. Problem is that the IE “blink” phenomenon has returned.

Thanks for taking the time to look at this, however.

Checking out your site here on iex 6.0.2 and it works fine – no blink.

Re: aro_slideshow

Yeah! Must have been IE caching issue. Thanks for all your help. Appears to work fine now. Powerful plugin.

Re: aro_slideshow

thanks for a cool plugin!

is there an easy way to extend the time that single images are displayed? i.e. – the time BETWEEN transitions.
(i understand that I can control the duration of the transition — it would just be nice to control how long each image displays prior to transitioning)

Also – is there a way to make the slideshow link to a section of the site? I wrapped the aro_slideshow tag with a link and it causes the slide show to jump in position (just a couple of pix down) each time the show starts again

Hey! Thanks for the good idea! I will try to have an updated version this week.

Also – is there a way to make the slideshow link to a section of the site?

I will look into this too.

Re: aro_slideshow

Hi Aeron, any way to instruct the plugin to use thumb images and not the main image?

Cheers, Lee.

Re: aro_slideshow

New version!! Important the way the javascript is handled has been changed. Please read the setup instructions in the first post of this thread. Additionally, if you were using the linked javascript slideshow.js you must download the updated version as well. Note that the slideshow.js no longer contains the prototype and moo code – those libraries must be linked apart. Note also some of the older attributes have been depreciated.

hi lee! Try the plugin with the new thumb="1" attribute

hi photonomad! Try the plugin with the new wait="number_of_seconds" attribute. Note that the previous attribute to control the time of the fade effect – ms – has been deprecited. The new attribute is happily enough fade="number_of_seconds". Note also that both atts use whole seconds instead of miliseconds as it was before.

Also – is there a way to make the slideshow link to a section of the site?

yes! You should be able to use the plugin tag from within any html link or txp permlink. If there are problems they can probably be resolved by tweaking your CSS. Read the little bit on troubleshooting in the first post of this thread or in the plugin help.
