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

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

3) Describe problem:

Hi there, I have integrated the script into my site and it works perfectly. Thank you. I have however a special wish: Can I place the navigation links for moving the slides forward and backward directly on top of the picture (precisely in the right bottom corner of the picture)? This will make the navigation links panel looks like integrated in the picture frame.

Thank you if you get back to me.

Kind regards

<div id="fadeshowtoggler" style="position:relative;z-index:2000;width:250px;text-align:center;top:-50px;">

Now, I'm not sure about the width or the top values. But those can be tweaked once you see how it lays out. And a left value is probably needed:


For that I just subtracted the width of the toggler from the width of the show, it also may need to be tweaked.

Hi john

Thank you for your prompt reply!

It works perfectly. But now since the navigation-links is in the right bottom corner, it covers part of the text for the pic. Could we make the text box a bit shorter, starting from the left bottom corner, so that it does not touch the navigation on the right, I do not mind even the box will be a square? To ask the question differently, where can I set the width of the text box?

Thank you when you get back again.

Kind regards

Add this to your stylesheet:

.fadeslidedescdiv {
left: 0;
width: 370px!important;

Or, if you have no stylesheet for the page, add this to the head of the page:

<style type="text/css">
.fadeslidedescdiv {
left: 0;
width: 370px!important;

Notes: The !important keyword is required to override the scripted width for this element. As before the exact values may need to be tweaked. But if this all worked out before with the other one, these should be good.
