View Full Version : Problem with Ultimate Fade In Slideshow v2.0

10-06-2011, 06:04 PM
1) Script Title: Ultimate Fade In Slideshow v2.0

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

3) Describe problem: I just used the simplest one to have a simple slideshow lay behind an MP3 file for my church's website

The slideshow doesn't seem to start until the mouse passes over the control bar for the embedded MP3. Any ideas?

The link in your post to the church's website is to a folder. What's the link to the page that shows the problem?

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

Thanks John. Here is one of the pages.

www.saintjameswestminster.ca/sermonplayer.php?s=sermons/111002.mp3&n=Harvest Blessing

It loads as a popup from www,saintjameswestminster.ca/semons.php

Well, if it so happens that the mouse is over the slideshow when the popup opens, in some browsers, yes. That's the default behavior of the script - pause onmouseover.

You can disable that by adding an oninit function (highlighted as shown) to the on page new fadeSlideShow declaration:

<script type="text/javascript">

var mygallery=new fadeSlideShow({
wrapperid: "fadeshow1", //ID of blank DIV on page to house Slideshow
dimensions: [551, 441], //width/height of gallery in pixels. Should reflect dimensions of largest image
imagearray: [
["picture_library/gary/ . . .

. . . . ary/gary_17.jpg"],
["picture_library/gary/gary_20.jpg"] //<--no trailing comma after very last image element!
displaymode: {type:'auto', pause:10000, cycles:0, wraparound:false},
persist: true, //remember last viewed slide and recall within same session?
fadeduration: 1000, //transition duration (milliseconds)
descreveal: "ondemand",
togglerid: "",
oninit: function(){
var setting = this.setting;
setting.$wrapperdiv.mouseenter(function(){setting.ismouseover = false;});
setting.ismouseover = false;


Don't miss the added comma (red) after the togglerid value.
