View Full Version : Captions not showing on Full Page Slideshow

03-02-2015, 01:27 PM
My captions are not showing on my Full Page Slideshow. I am using the code from this URL: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fullpageslideshow/index.htm. The actual slideshow does work. I have downloaded the 4 files in step 2 of the directions to my server. The pictures are fading in and out and the slideshow is stopping after 2 loops. The call to get the captions is not working correctly. Nor is the caption in the static_text_area showing during the slideshow. I am on IE8. How can I get the captions to show during the slide show. My code is below. I have tried using the playlist.json version and the playlist version is what I have below. Neither will show the captions. Thanks in advance for your help.


<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="smooth_slider.css">


.slideshowwrapper{ /* dimensions of outermost slideshow container */
width: 900px;
height: 500px;
position: relative;
overflow: hidden;

area.animate({"opacity": 1}, 500); // fade in & out take 500ms each
