    Default Swiss Army Slideshow help!!

    Hi all,
    Im using the swiss army slideshow for presenting galleries for an artist.
    Each painting size is different, but when i click to the next slide the (larger) previous image can still be seen in the background on the next slide.Any ideas??
    Also i want to know to move the image description above the image and not below?
    If you have any better slideshows or galleries that you might think would be better than the swiss please let me know!!

    Thanks!

    Shane

    Have you set the fadecolor to transparent? If so, set it to a solid color.

    The descriptions are in a span with an id of:

    imgdsc#

    where # is the zero based index of the slideshow on the page. If you only have one, it's 0. If you have two the first one is 0 and the second one is 1. If you have three, well you get the idea.

    If you want to move the descriptions to the top, place this highlighted code as shown after the call in the body for the show (master# is the id for each main slideshow).

    Code:
    <script type="text/javascript">
    new inter_slide(slides);
    document.getElementById('master0').parentNode.insertBefore(document.getElementById('imgdsc0'),document.getElementById('master0'));
    </script>
    As you can see the indexes in it are set to 0 for the first or only slideshow on a page. Adjust if needed. If you have more than one show on the page, each may be followed by one of these as long as each uses the corresponding indexes.

    If you want more help:

    Please post a link to a page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.


    Oh, and there are tons of other slideshows around, it really depends upon exactly what you're after as to which one's best for the design, though some scripts are easier to deal with than others and some have more options, many have unique features, some are more cross browser than others.

    Just Google:

    javascript slideshow

    or:

    image carousel

    Things like that will get you lots of options to choose from.
