Hello there, i had posted a similar post and though the information i was given was a great step ahead, i am still lost when it comes to using jquery with dreamweaver. I would really appreciate a step by step "how to".

My aim is to have a slide show with a short caption that has a link you can click. I found something on this page (http://www.queness.com/post/1450/jquery-photo-slide-show-with-slick-caption-tutorial-revisited) and this other page (http://www.queness.com/post/152/simple-jquery-image-slide-show-with-semi-transparent-caption) but I seem to be gioing wrong somewhere. Can you write such code in dreamweaver?

Please respond soon

The pages you have linked are step by step and all the code you need is there for download. You just need to edit the relevant parts in Code View in DW.

alright I downloaded jquery and all relevant apps. the tutorial you say is pretty straight forward. but what happens say i want to have 2 or more slide shows on the same page. I have also failed to figure out how to link the text in the description to a page on the website or other. when i viewed the page in safari the caption was not right under the image but way at the bottom of the page. i really need a proper step by step like the way the dreamwaever tutorials are on the adobe website where even possible errors are discussed and how to solve them.
