View Full Version : Slide queuing problems

1) Script Title: Swiss Army Knife

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...army/index.htm

3) Describe problem: Having removed the white background from the slides, by making them transparent, they now overlap each other. Bits of the next slide show behind the current one before the current one disappears. Can I stop the next slide from appearing before the current one has gone?
Thanks for your help:)

Sorry, this is not clear to me.I need to stop the next slide from showing while the slide in front is on the screen. I have tried changing the canvas settings without success. What am I doing wrong?

And that's the solution, try it.

If you want more help, please include a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.

Oh, you have three slideshows. In that case you need canvas2_0 and canvas2_1. Also your head section is a little disorganized. That's probably a fine point, but might be important in some browsers. Reorganize it like so and add the highlighted:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>about us</title><!-- change the "$ x.x.x.x where x is the name of the page"; -->
<!--<title>main page</title>-->

I need to experiment with backgrounds etc but looks pretty good :)
