View Full Version : Thumbnail control for Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.1)

12-21-2009, 04:22 PM
1) Script Title:
Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.1)

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem:
I wish to create navigational controls that allow the user to move between slides by clicking a thumbnail.

You currently have a "Prev" and "Next" buttons, so I hope you can have a thumbnail button for each image.

I've also seen a Thumbnail hack to select different galleries, but this is not what I want.

Would something like this be OK: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/frogjs/index.htm

Nile, I wish you would quit pushing that Frog. It's not modular and has serious problems in Opera and IE 8.

Anyways, try out this demo. It can be made to do what you want:

Wow! That's great!

Exactly what I was after.

From this code I can configure it with thumbnails.

PS. Frog wasn't what I wan't but thanks all the same. :)
