That's actually version 1.51 of the slideshow. To get it working requires two things:


In the js/slideshow.js file, the paths to the images are wrong. These should be relative to the page that is using the script, not to the script. Change this:


var fadeimages=new Array()
//SET IMAGE PATHS. Extend or contract array as needed
fadeimages[0]=["../imgs/1.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[1]=["../imgs/2.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[2]=["../imgs/3.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[3]=["../imgs/4.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[4]=["../imgs/5.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[5]=["../imgs/6.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[6]=["../imgs/7.png", "", ""]

to:


var fadeimages=new Array()
//SET IMAGE PATHS. Extend or contract array as needed
fadeimages[0]=["imgs/1.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[1]=["imgs/2.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[2]=["imgs/3.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[3]=["imgs/4.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[4]=["imgs/5.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[5]=["imgs/6.png", "", ""]
fadeimages[6]=["imgs/7.png", "", ""]

If there's ever any question, the absolute paths may be used.



In the style.css file, this rule at the beginning:


* {
margin: 0px;
height: 0px;
}

is causing some important part of the slideshow to disappear. It's probably a typo anyway, change it to:


* {
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
}


There may still be other problems, but taking care of those two things will get it working.

Also, where you have on the page:


<script type="text/javascript" src="js/slideshow.js"></script>

In order to follow Dynamic Drive's Terms of Use, that needs to be:


<script type="text/javascript" src="js/slideshow.js">

/***********************************************
* Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow (v1.51): (c) Dynamic Drive (http://www.dynamicdrive.com)
* Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for this script and 100s more.

</script>

See Dynamic Drive's usage terms (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/notice.htm), which, among other things, state that the script credit must appear in the source code of the page(s) using the script. Please reinstate the notice.
