I suppose that might be able to be done but, the functionality of Interactive Image slideshow and the fading method used in Ultimate Fade-in slideshow would be hard to combine, perhaps impossible. I've been fooling around for awhile with an update to Interactive Image slideshow. It is highly modular and can have fading in IE 6+. Here is a demo:


It has three slide shows that show off almost all of the modules available with this update. Most modules can be mixed and matched as desired and are all documented in the source code.

Sorry you don't find it useful :)

Anyways, that is actually a link to a project that I have in development. In fact, I just uploaded a newer version with minor improvements. The version you were looking at was an upgrade from the one that it was when I posted the link.



particularly post #'s 3 & 5 for info on how to configure it (the source code is well documented too so, consult that as well).

If this is all still too mystifying for you, unless you have a specific question, wait until it is included in the DD scripts library, which should be fairly soon but, since I do not run that nor have any official connection to DD, I cannot say for sure.

ok I kind of got it working.
Have a lot of extra code, and I have to work out the IFRAME size in IE.

I tried fixing up your code but, it was so bad that I gave up. I can tell you some things that will get you headed in the right direction. Only one head and one body allowed per page. HTML tags, unless part of scripts (between <script> and </script> tags), and then only sometimes, should otherwise never be in the head. There is generally no use calling a function twice on a page in the same way and certainly not before the function you are calling is established. Having empty script tags:

<script type="text/javascript"> </script>

serves no purpose. Having empty markup like:




will add spacing and/or height and/or width to your page that is sometimes not desired.

Finally, so many things in HTML affect one another that, it is best to use the simplest code possible, if for no other reason than to avoid confusion. If something doesn't look right, your first thought should be, "What can I take away to fix this?" not, "What can I add?"
