View Full Version : Slideshow background image in IE6.0

10-27-2008, 02:08 PM
1) Script Title: SwissArmy Slide Images

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

3) Describe problem: I used the steps proposed in this great forum to use instead of a background color an background image by using in the Script Section of the htm Files the variable:

slides.fadecolor='url(http://www.chrysalidgroove.com/images/background_main.jpg) -75px -27px';

In Firefox, it works smoothly, however, in IE6.0 this makes the whole slide show not to work. (you get just the headline no image is shown just the background and the links are not working, compare http://www.chrysalidgroove.com/photos/Avenue_16Oct/index.htm (color) and http://www.chrysalidgroove.com/photos/anciennes/index_Kopie(1).htm (image)). Given that this slideshow is really nice it would be great to ue it with a backgroundimage as well while not exluding Micosoft followers. My research and tests so far did not find a solution while experimenting with CSS opacity settings for the IE or solving the cache bug of IE (IMHO it has nothing to do with that).

So if anyone had the same problem or an idea how to fix this problem would be very appreciated!

Best, Johannes
