Script: Photo Album Script

I'm a newbie at all this :P So I'm wondering how can you add pictures to pages 2,3,4 etc..?
And can you change the text 'Page1' 'Page2'?

You add pictures by adding to the array:

//Specify images:
//galleryarray[x]=["path_to_image", "optional_title_attribute", "optional_text_description", "optional_link"]
var galleryarray=new Array()
galleryarray[0]=["photo1.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", "optional url"]
galleryarray[1]=["photo2.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", "optional url"]
galleryarray[2]=["photo3.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", "optional url"]
galleryarray[3]=["photo4.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", "optional url"]
galleryarray[4]=["photo5.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", "optional url"]
galleryarray[5]=["photo6.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", "optional url"]
galleryarray[6]=["photo7.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", "optional url"]
galleryarray[7]=["added.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", "optional url"]

The actual number of images per page is controlled here:

var dimension="3x2" //Specify dimension of gallery (number of images shown), such as 4x2, 3x1 etc

So to add images to a particular page you need to increase the number of images shown per page. To get more control, dummy images may be inserted in the array using a transparent .gif, ex:

galleryarray[2]=["transparent.gif", "", "", ""]

These will appear as blank areas in the given 'page' that they fall on.

The text for 'Page1' 'Page2' is generated here on the red line:

<div id="navlinks">
<script type="text/javascript">
for (i=1; i<Math.floor(galleryarray.length/totalslots+2); i++)
document.write('<a id="navlink'+i+'" href="javascript:jumptopage('+i+')\">Page'+i+'</a> ')

To change the text displayed, you can edit it like so:

document.write('<a id="navlink'+i+'" href="javascript:jumptopage('+i+')\">Items'+i+'</a> ')

The above change will yield 'Items1', 'Items2', etc.

thanks heaps!!!!
and if I could ask another question how do you get rid of the optional url?

The optional fields can be made to 'disappear' as it were, by simply using empty quotes for them in the array, for example:

galleryarray[0]=["photo1.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", "optional url"]

can become:

galleryarray[0]=["photo1.jpg", "optional title", "optional description", ""]

if no url is desired.
