1) Script Title: preloaded sldeshow

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

3) Describe problem: I'm experimenting with this slideshow as I have some quite big slideshows on the website I'm currently working on so I want something that will load quickly and allow viewers to scroll through before all the images are loaded. The script works fine but I want to use my own arrow images. Being somewhat of a novice in messing around with scripts what I've tried to do doesn't work. You can see my attempts to tweak the script here: http://www.caseyorr.com/new/wool2.html

Any suggestions as to how to remedy what is no doubt a very fundamental mistake are welcome.

Thanks,

Jude

Are "your arrows" the ones that look like they've been hand drawn? If so, then they seem to be working fine for me in FF3

Yes they are the hand drawn arrows but the images of the slideshow aren't displaying in FF or Safari or Opera.

Sifting through your code it seems as though you are using a different script than the one you posted a link to... Or maybe a modified version of it?

The images from the slideshow are showing in FF3 for me, the arrows work fine for cycling through the images in FF3... However, it seems as though they will not work in IE7.

I keep getting error:
'document.getElementById(...)' is null or not an object

Hmm ... not getting any images anywhere (have tried on a PC now too - nothing in IE or FF)
If you look at any of the other pages on the website (eg. http://www.caseyorr.com/new/kitchen.html) I've used a different script which runs fine but can be slow to load due to the number of images. Is there a way to tweak that code so not all the images preload before the user starts clicking through the images?

Thanks,

Jude
