View Full Version : Image Thumbnail Viewer II

I've just finished adding the script to my site and can't figure out why the images aren't showing on the page. This the code I used:

In the head;-

<script type="text/javascript">

//Specify image paths and optional link (set link to "" for no link):
var dynimages=new Array()
dynimages[0]=["sample1.png", ""]
dynimages[1]=["sample2.png", ""]
dynimages[2]=["sample3.png", ""]
dynimages[3]=["sample4.png", ""]
dynimages[4]=["sample5.png", ""]
dynimages[5]=["sample6.png", ""]

//Preload images ("yes" or "no"):
var preloadimg="yes"

//Set optional link target to be added to all images with a link:
var optlinktarget=""

//Set image border width
var imgborderwidth=0

//Optionally, change 1.0 and 0.7 below to affect Wipe gradient size and duration in seconds in IE5.5+:
var filterstring="progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.GradientWipe(GradientSize=1.0 Duration=0.7)"

///////No need to edit beyond here/////

if (preloadimg=="yes"){
for (x=0; x<dynimages.length; x++){
var myimage=new Image()

function returnimgcode(theimg){
var imghtml=""
if (theimg[1]!="")
imghtml='<a href="'+theimg[1]+'" target="'+optlinktarget+'">'
imghtml+='<img src="'+theimg[0]+'" border="'+imgborderwidth+'">'
if (theimg[1]!="")
return imghtml

function modifyimage(loadarea, imgindex){
if (document.getElementById){
var imgobj=document.getElementById(loadarea)
if (imgobj.filters && window.createPopup){
if (imgobj.filters && window.createPopup)
return false


In the body;-

<CENTER><a href="sample1.png" onMouseover="modifyimage('dynloadarea', 0)"><IMG SRC="sample1.png"></a>
<a href="sample2.png" onMouseover="modifyimage('dynloadarea', 1)"><IMG SRC="sample2.png"></a>
<a href="sample3.png" onMouseover="modifyimage('dynloadarea', 2)"><IMG SRC="sample3.png"></a>
<a href="sample4.png" onMouseover="modifyimage('dynloadarea', 3)"><IMG SRC="sample4.png"></a>
<a href="sample5.png" onMouseover="modifyimage('dynloadarea', 4)"><IMG SRC="sample5.png"></a>
<a href="sample6.png" onMouseover="modifyimage('dynloadarea', 5)"><IMG SRC="sample6.png"></a>
<div id="dynloadarea" style="width:80px;height:225px"></div></CENTER>

The images are in the root directory with the page, but aren't showing up... Anyone had a similar problem (or noticed a mistake I've missed)? :eek: :confused:

Oh, by the way, the "big grin" image shouldn't be there, it's actually the : and D that are right next to each other!

If that's your site, linked at the bottom of your post, your upload was bad or the file was bad to begin with, I'm getting:

The image “http://wearewatching.5000megs.com/sample1.png” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

In FF.

If that's not your site, I need your site's URL and preferably a link to the problem page to figure it out.

I've just been notified that the problems caused by my host, apparently PNG's (the type of images I used for the script) take up too much bandwidth so they get blocked by the 'on board software'! Ironically they do allow BMP's, hmm..... :eek: :eek: :confused: :confused:

Thanks anyway jscheuer1 for trying to help.

Well, for graphics, a .gif is similar and for pictures, .jpg is good. I think the .png ban is stupid. A more intelligent way for the host to deal with this would be simply to limit file size. Any graphic in any format can take up too much space and/or bandwidth.
