View Full Version : Conveyor belt slideshow problem

02-15-2014, 12:19 PM
1) Script Title: multiframe Conveyor belt slide show

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

3) Describe problem:

Hello group. New here, so please be patient.

Found 3 different links to Conveyor belt slideshow on DD. I tried the one in the above URL on DD (dynamicindex14/multiframeslide.htm), but could not get it to work.

Inserted the Style in the Head section, and modified the params in the script as per instructions in the comments, and the slidestoreveal var is 5, one less than the number of slides defined. set slideseparater to "" for a horizontal presentation. None of my images have associated links (yet), so I set optlinktarget to ""

I suspect my problem is in the seqslides array, where I specify the names of my images as well as the URL, because I get 5 broken image symbols.

Seems simple enough. For the URL part I give the full prefix, beyond .com, such as http://www.abc.com/lib/images. Tried both ending this with and without a forward slash, neither worked. For my 6 images, just their actual filename, such as seqslides[0]="image1.jpg"

Can anyone help with this basic level problem?

Thanks for looking in.

Hello Vic,

Thanks for your time.
I changed the seqslides to single full URL as you have it in your code sample for [0]. This worked!

Not sure why the two part specification as given by DD ("image name" , "URL prefix") did not work for me, but the problem is solved, thanks to you.
