View Full Version : hyperlinked slideshow script

07-08-2005, 11:41 PM
Hello everyone. I need some help. I only know enough about programming to be surprised when I can get something to work. I've been trying to find a script that will allow me to put a slideshow with back and next buttons on my home page. I would like to hyperlink from those images to other pages. I've found some scripts that are very nice. The problem for me is that when I click to a page and then back, the slide show starts at the beginning. If I knew how to hold the place I would be happy. (For now) I think that "onload=some cookie" might be beyond me, but I don't know. Maybe a separate window will work. What do you all think? Thanks

To open links from the script in a new window, find the script you want to use. If it opens a page using the:

<a href="some.htm"><img src="some.jpg"></a>method, make it:

<a href="some.htm" target="_blank"><img src="some.jpg"></a>If it uses the:

location.href='some.htm'method,make it:

window.open('some.htm','galWin')Also, some scripts allow you to configure a variable as to where linked pages will open, if it has that, use that.

This is the only reference to "href", which I think is the hyperlink, that I could find. var v1=arguments,v2=v1[0],v3=MM_findObj(v2),v4=v1[1],v5='',v6;if (!v3.LSS3.complete){v6="flvFLSS3('"+v2+"',"+v4+")";setTimeout(v6,50);return;}if (v3.LSS2[v4][1]!=""){v5+='<a href="'+v3.LSS2[v4][1]+'"';if (v3.LSS1!=""){v5+=' target="'+v3.LSS1+'"';}v5+='>';}v5+='<img src="'+v3.LSS3.src+'" border="0" alt="">';if (v3.LSS2[v4][1]!=""){v5+='</a>';}if (v3.LSS2[v4][2]!=""){v5+='<br>'+unescape(v3.LSS2[v4][2]);}if (document.layers){v3.document.open();v3.document.write(v5);v3.document.close();}else {v3.innerHTML=v5;}}
It's from: Marja Ribbers-de Vroed, FlevOOware (www.flevooware.nl/dreamweaver
It's her "Linked Slide Show" Dreamweaver extension.

Here is what part of the array looks like: ;flvFLSS1('Pix',3500,0,1,'','Images/PICT0002.jpg','','','Images/PICT0005.jpg','','','Images/PICT0009.jpg','','',
I did try some with "window.open('some.htm','galWin')" and started to get some results. I'll keep on it.

Thanks for your help. If you have any more thoughts I'll be looking.

Well, that is a commercial script and looks more complicated than need be. Have a look at this one, much easier to configure I'd bet:

Thanks John
I probably could add the new window feature to it. I had copied the "BookFlip" script by the same author and like it. I'm encouraged by your first suggestions, though. I think I can get that to work. I know the script is "too much", but it fits in to Dreamweaver so nicely. By the way, Dreamweaver is available for a 30 day free trial.
