1) Script Title:
Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow (v1.5)

2) Script URL (on DD):
http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeinslideshow.htm

3) Describe problem:


Hello!

First off, this is an awesome script. However I ran into a problem with the new version of it. I've used an old one on this site: www.viefoto.se
The thing is, I modified it a bit. Since I don't know what I'm doing, it probably looks awful for someone who does. But it worked. Until now. Someone surfed in on the site with IE7 and the slideshow disappears when a menu item is clicked. I'm just guessing this is some IE7 thing because it works fine in all other browsers.

Here's the deal. I'd like to upgrade to the new version of the script, but it's a obviously a bit too advanced for me to mess around with. I tried to modify it so it would work like the previous one did, but I can't get it to work.

Here is what I want to do:
The images is stored in a list, seperated by spaces, in an external txt file. This is so it can be loaded into multiple pages and easily updated for someone who knows even less then me (try to imagine that!) about how it works. What I did with the previous script was to make the array one dimensional by cutting out the multidimensional stuff not needed anyway. At least, this is what I would like to believe I did. This is how it looks:

The slide.txt file looks like this:

= the files seperated by spaces.

Now, I tried to do the same with the new script. But it won't work. I tried to cut out the multidimensional stuff (link and target), also the border thing. But as it's not displaying I obviously screwed up. This is how it looks:

Any ideas? Sorry for mutilating this script! Any help appreciated!

As long as the script has a valid array containing images that exist and that is named as indicated in the call(s) in the body of the page, it will work. I would suggest not removing any dimensions of the array unless you also edit the script to not look for them. The way the script is written it expects to see all three dimensions but will ignore those that are represented by empty quotes.

One of the best ways to diagnose something like this is to get FF with the developer's extension and examine the generated code. With an include though, just examining the source code in any browser should reveal if you have a valid array or not.

I hacked together a small loop that creates the array needed from the same external textfile. If anyone else wants it, this is the piece of code I replaced the array with:


var str='<!--#include virtual="/slide/slide.txt" -->'

var tempfade=new Array()
tempfade = str.split(" ");

var fadeimages = new Array()

var i1 = tempfade.length
fadeimages.length = i1

var i2 = 0

while (i2<i1)
{
fadeimages[i2]=[tempfade[i2],"",""]
i2=i2+1
}

Delete the stuff from the top down to the fadebackground colour var. Thanks!
