View Full Version : Slideshow conflict

05-06-2010, 04:25 PM
I have a page which has two small slideshows (SWF) running at the same time. The 2nd one is somehow picking up some images from the 1st one (top one)

I have checked the images in each slideshow and they are different.


Is it possible to run two at the same time? I am looking to add another 1 or 2 on this page.

It's possible to run two swf files at the same time.
They most likely share some common unique identifier of some kind, but I can't tell from the HTML file.

You'd be better off using javascript for this, flash for slideshow is overkill.

thanks I shall look into it. I used Koolmoves s/w which is easy to use. I will have to learn Javascript I guess

Not really much requirement to learn javascript (unless you want to of course). There are loads of slideshows ready made for you; http://vandelaydesign.com/blog/web-development/jquery-image-galleries/ All you need to do is learn how to plug them in and how to use them.

Hope that helps.

I agree with Corrosive. You don't need that much knowledge of javascript if you want to implement a jQuery plugin. All those plugins come with a detailed explanation where to put the necessary files and codes.
One thing though... you'll have to insert everything in 'code view' instead of 'design view', but doing things like this will get you used to work in the 'code view' environment so that would be already a big plus for you.
