View Full Version : Beginners Question- Pixelating Slideshow Script

04-29-2011, 12:34 PM
Hi, I'm a complete beginner at website building and I wanted to add a Pixelating Slideshow Script( http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/pixelate.htm) to my site. I followed instructions and placed the code in the Head section, and then another code on the source page of the page I want my sildshow.

Following this, a yellow <javascript> came up on the page. I'm sorry if I'm missing something really obvious, but how do I get the slide show to appear on my page and then modify it with my own pictures etc.

Please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic script so we can check it out.

It is a condition sine quae non: The slideshow will only appear if everything written is correct and if all elements are at hand.

First: Copy all the main javascript code between <head></head> tags of source data and change "photo1.jpg","photo2.jpg","photo3.jpg" to your images names with the correct path (for testing purposes place all files on same directory as html page). Also you can modify the links ( "http://www.domain.com", etc ) or not to use them ( "","","" ). Accuracy: the links can be, I believe, absolute as in the example, or relative.
If you add more images to template slideshow (with formula ,"name.jpg" I insist with the correct path ) you must also add corresponding links although are empty (with formula ,"" ). Add as many links as images.

Second: Between the <body></body> tags of source data, where you wish the slideshow to appear in the visual page, add the code of next step AND change "photo1.jpg" to "myfirstimagename.jpg", again with the correct path . ;-)

If you want, you can customize slidespeed=3000 (3 seconds on example) and the valors of template slideshow MaxSquare=15,Duration=1 .

That's all. Goog luck!
