View Full Version : Ultimate Fade-in Slideshow: Black box still showing after fix

1) Script Title: :: Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.4)

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

3) Describe problem:

On this site, http://www.hayesedaze.com/hedtryagain.htm

view the opening page with slideshow in the center and then the buttons for trailriding, pony parties and summer camp (which also contain slideshows). Each image in the slideshows are encased by a graphic background.

My problem:

The opening page center frame (home button depressed at start) does what I want - shows the background's text before loading, but the other 3 pages (also center frames) don't. They show the pesky black background first (before the slideshow) and not the text, even though I have the same code as on the first page - marking it transparent. When I get out of frames and view each page separately, I see the text - so know it is there on the background.

I've studied my source documents carefully for each of these (bodyhed.htm for the opening page, then trailriding.htm, ponypartiesa.htm and summerdaycamp.htm, and as far as I can see the codes for transparency are exact. I do have an image background for all but the trailriding button - it loads in a background color only). The opening center page on the site has that background (tagboard planks loading in all across the frame) and the text works there but not on the two pages (summer camp button and pony parties button) with that same background.

My coding is probably faulty from the word go -- I'm very new to CSS coding.

Please help?..............(love the slideshow, by the way)

Thanks, Mimi (newbie)

Hi Mimi, I tried the link to you site but for some reason the link doesn't work.

Hi, azoomer. I tried the link I included, and it does work for me, but delays a bit. I single-clicked it, and waited and double-clicked it and both times it opened up.

I'd really like to have help with this.
Any suggestions as to how?

I can try including the link again here, making sure I use the picture help above (maybe I didn't do that before, just typed my link address?) and see if it can be opened up.

Thanks for replying so quickly.............Mimi

Mimi, try this first and see if it helps. You have this in the css somewhere ( i'm having a hard time finding my way around the files with all the frames):

#fadeshow4, #fadeshow4.gallerylayer {
background-color:transparent !important;
}
Change it to this

#fadeshow4, #fadeshow4 .gallerylayer {
background-color:transparent !important;
}
It's not much of a difference, just an extra space after #fadeshow4.
I hope this will fix it. And of course you would need to do the same other places where the same mistake applies.

Yes!!!!!!
That was it. One space. unbelievable.
I called up all three pages, added that space,
saved the file, uploaded via ftp and voila!
It works!!!

Thank you for all the trouble wading through the frames, azoomer.
That's what my friend wanted for her site
Believe me, I'd love it to be a lot simpler.
I realize now I could have done it all with CSS, but
I would have to completely re-do a site I'm doing
for free. But I'm learning, and this forum has been a big
help to me in that journey.

Thanks again!

Mimi

and here's a link to a screen capture collage of all 4 of my buttons
loading in the slideshow over the background, with the
black box nowhere in sight and the text showing before and until it
loads in - in case anyone checking in wants to see it in action.
