View Full Version : Ultimate Fade In Slideshow v2.0 with 2x hotspots/image maps

11-01-2011, 08:01 PM
I've used The Ultimate Fade in Slideshow a few times and love it!!

I'm currently trying to do something with it but not sure how and would really appreciate some help.

The idea is to have a selection of 6 images fading through the slideshow but the images have areas on the left hand side saying 'click here for details on blah blah' and on the right hand side is saying 'click here for details on blah blah blah' (message is on the same place on all 6 of the fading images) sending you to 2 different urls.

The images are 920px x 339px and I'd like 2 hotspots/image maps dividing the images (left and right).

I know it's pretty simple to direct you to another url when you 'click' on the slideshow but I need 2 areas on the same slideshow to take you to 2 diferent urls.

Hope this is clear...

Can anyone help???

I can imagine, that I'll place two transparent absolutely positioned divs over the slider with the images, where the first leads on click to the first url, and the second to the second url.

Thanks Xman, I tried that but doesn't seem to work when it's over the top of the JS slideshow ;o( Any ideas why not?

You need to give the divs a high z-index. Try z-index:1100

here is an example (http://azoomer.com/ufis-link/) of a way it could be done

Thanks azoomer, I had a look at your example and can see what you've done.
I tried to apply the same to mine but as soon as I try to change the coordinated of the boxes, it moves the grey boxes to sit over the slideshow but pushes the text links below...

I've uploaded my text page and supplied a link below if you could possibly spare a few minutes to take a look, I'd be very grateful.


I also have Cufon working on the same page, I hope that's not interfering.

This is in place of, not in addition to previous methods. It places the links inside the wrapper and makes them elements of the script that could be updated from existing or additional entries in each imagearray item. Any questions, feel free to ask.
