    Default Carousel image placeholder.gif *Red X

    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/carousel.htm

    I am also having a problem with the carousel. My pictures show up fine along with the outside links, but I have the little red x in the upper left of the carousel and no matter how I adjust the placeholder width, it won't go away.

    I don't understand how this formula totals up. The width of my pictures is 140 (6 pictures) 140 + 7?
    -12 sided: 3.87 * carousel image width + 7

    What does "3.87 *" mean and how does it figure in?

    Here's the site in question:

    Two things:

    First, did you download the placeholder.gif and make it available to your page?

    Second, the * symbol means multiply so:

    3.87 * carousel image width + 7

    in the case you mention would mean:

    3.87 times 140 plus 7.

    (3.87*140)+7

    which is 548.8 or 549 in round numbers.

    Yes, I downloaded it. But to a newbie, just what does that mean? Download it to where and do what with it once it is downloaded to your pc? It really doesn't explain.

    This is what I have.

    </script>
    <div id="Carousel" style="position:relative">
    <img src="placeholder.gif" width="549" height="225">
    </div>
    Now the place holder is even wider and the red X still shows.

    Thanks for replying!

    With the code you have, you need to put placeholder.gif in the same folder as your page.

    Just a fine point, is 225 the height of your images? If so, best to add the 2 as recommended and use 227 instead for the placeholder height.
