View Full Version : Multiple Step Carousel - FF2 & FF3 (Mac) Problem

04-22-2009, 08:43 PM
1) Script Title: Step Carousel Viewer v1.6.1

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/stepcarousel.htm

3) Describe problem:

First off, this is the page in question - http://staging.psandl.com/york_web/tabs2.html

I am using Jquery for 2 tabs. The content for each tab is an instance of the Step Carousel.

Safari, Opera, even IE6 display the desired effect. On FF2 and FF3 (on Mac) however, the entire carousel does not display when clicking the second tab. It seems to default to the end of the line.

My first guess was to try and bring the content in via iframe, hoping 2 distinct instances would do the trick.

At this point, I've tried everything I can think of, from creating separate stepcarousel.js and .css files for each iframe file, renaming all the classes, bringing the data in thru ajax doesn't work either.

thanks much for any help.

Usually when all else fails, the reliable way to display dynamic content dynamically is to save that content as a separate page, and show it on the target page using the IFRAME element. So in this case, each instance of Carousel Viewer in its entirety would be saved as a separate page first (so it works when going to that page). Then for your tabs, have them show as the content an IFRAME element pointing to the Carousel page in question.

I'm not familiar with the capabilities of the tabs script you're using, so using Ajax Tabs Content Script (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex17/ajaxtabscontent/index.htm) as an example, you'd just use the IFRAME option when loading a tab's content.
