1) Script Title: Ultimate Fade-in slideshow

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

3) Describe problem:

Hello, the first thing I wanted to say is THANK YOU for sharing the wonderful scripts on DD! :)

The problem I am having is that Ultimate Slideshow doesn't seem to be compatible with Google Chrome. the slideshow works great in every other browser, but refuses to show up in Chrome. Is there a script line I need to add for this compatibility issue?

I am currently using a .js file linked to from my index page here:

The Index: http://www.metascapemedia.com/

The .JS file: http://www.metascapemedia.com/css/fade.js

I tried updating to version 2.0, but that didnt work, so I put 1.5 back in place. I also made sure to research Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow: how to use with attached .js file thread, and tutorial, and everything seems to be right.

Thank you in advance for steering me in the right direction, and I am in high hopes someone found a solution to make this awesome script compatible with Google Chrome.

Your page is in violation of Dynamic Drive's usage terms (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/notice.htm), which, among other things, state that the script credit must appear in the source code of the page(s) using the script. Please reinstate the notice first.

That's a really old version of the script, and had a number of problems. The current version will work in Chrome if installed properly. However, an interim version exists (later dubbed 1.51):


It will also work in Chrome.

Thank's for your response John, I will give 1.5.1 a try and see if that works. I apologize about the breaking TOS. I really had no idea, as I put the credits for this script here within the major source code:


...How embarrassing. I will fix ASAP.

Thanks again,


EDIT: OK, I placed:

* Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow (v1.5): Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)
* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use
* Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for this script and 100s more.

Four times within the page where the script calls for the .JS. Again, I apologize, and didn't realize I was breaking TOS. OK, now to see if 1.5.1 works...
