View Full Version : blending slideshow aint sliding

09-25-2005, 08:48 PM
I'm trying to get that blending slideshow thing on my xanga site but it isn't really working... it shows the first image, but it doesn't slide... i know, it's xanga, not an official website, but if the first image can show up, why aren't the other ones comming up? I've got IE... even if I didn't it looks like it's supposed anyway... here's the code... tell what I messed up please...

Blending Slideshow

<script language="JavaScript1.1">

// Blending Image Slide Show Script-

//specify interval between slide (in mili seconds)
var slidespeed=3000

//specify images
var slideimages=new Array("http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/Stevfusion/needcodes.jpg","http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/Stevfusion/Needtolearn.jpg","http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/Stevfusion/wantyousite.jpg","http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/Stevfusion/thencometo.jpg")

var newwindow=1 //open links in new window? 1=yes, 0=no

var imageholder=new Array()
var ie=document.documentElement.filters
for (i=0;i<slideimages.length;i++){
imageholder[i]=new Image()

function gotoshow(){
if (newwindow)


<a href="javascript:gotoshow()"><img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b294/Stevfusion/needcodes.jpg" name="slide" border=0 style="filter:blendTrans(duration=3)" width=668 height=78></a>

<script language="JavaScript1.1">

var whichlink=0
var whichimage=0
var blenddelay=(ie)? document.images.slide.filters[0].duration*1000 : 0
function slideit(){
if (!document.images) return
if (ie) document.images.slide.filters[0].apply()
if (ie) document.images.slide.filters[0].play()
whichimage=(whichimage<slideimages.length-1)? whichimage+1 : 0

Like I said, even though I'm using the xanga look and feel (which is supposed to be a simplified html editor) I'm still getting the first image, which means it should be able to slide...

This line has been incorrectly altered:

for (i=0;i<slideimages.length;//+){It should be:

for (i=0;i<slideimages.length;i++){That will fix it in IE and Mozilla but, there is an incorrect assumption about browsers that support document.all and not filter styles, like Opera and others. So, this should be changed as well:

var ie=document.allto:

var ie=document.documentElement.filters

that didn't do it... i made the changes and I'll keep them, but it's still not sliding... I even put it in my web editor again, it's simply not sliding... niether is the fading slideshow... i tried that one out then I found this one... I'm putting the first part under the header, and the second under the body like it told me to... what am I doin wrong?
