View Full Version : Flexi slideshow All Help please

09-09-2004, 09:54 PM
I love the Flexi slideshow script. http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/flexislide.htm
I want to use it multiple times on a webpage.
I have attempted to use the tutorial to put the onload function into the body tag but I am having no success with it. I have gotten other scripts to work using the tutorial but not this one.
I have tried:<body onload="start_slider()"> and also <body onload="rotateimages()"> and I have also tried combining the 2 functions in the script:<body onload="start_slider ;rotateimages()">

Anyone have any ideas on this??

Since this is a Dynamic Drive script can it be written to use multiple times?
Or is there something else I am missing in the tutorial to make it work?
I would like to use it on the same page about 5 times.

Thanks you!
Sherry :confused:

There are times I have not gotten a script to work for me, then I decided to use the subtractive method. I figure it works on the Dynamic Drive page, I look at their code on their page and even have pasted the whole html code on a troublesome script into my code in FrontPage. Then I subtract until I have the script isolated and working. Then it is that I ususally have an epiphany as to why it wasn't working, so far it has been the way I interpreted the instructions.

On using the same script again and again, sometimes that will not work, however, it is the end result to the user how your page displays, right? There are other ways to arrive at the end result. If a script will allow only one of itself to be on a page, make anothe page of it, an external file or your slide-show or any other script, this will work with too. Then use an iframe, and pop that puppy back into the page and voila, it works. This works almost 100% of the time so long as you have all the code right in your iframe and you specify the address of your external source correctly.

:confused: I read your reply to the prev. question, and I'm having trouble even getting DD's flexi slideshow script to work on my site,(the text shows up, but not the images), let alone using my own variables....please help if you can!

It's not going to work with over 1 slideshow unless we do go into variables and function naming etc.

Unfortunately as cr3ative says, simply put, there is currently no easy way to get multiple copies of this script per page. For someone who knows JS, it's certainly possible, though a time consuming process as far as making the changes required.
