Hi All,

I am just completing my adobe web design and flash certificate and i am building my final website, so my skill level is rookie at the moment. I am looking to add a slideshow to my website like the one at the top of this website http://detrans.deviantart.com/art/Sleek-Web-Layout-Tutorial-187062474 (http://detrans.deviantart.com/art/Sleek-Web-Layout-Tutorial-187062474). where can i download a slideshow widget like this or where can i find code to do this myself?

I have looked at the widgets available with adobe in the widget manager but non of them produce the kind of slide show i am looking to produce.

Thank you.

Try searching "JQuery Slideshows" on Google. You'll find loads of options.

If you look at the website. The HTML goes in your page where you want the slideshow. The CSS goes in your stylesheet. The Basic Initialization goes before your closing </head> tag and you need to link to the main javascript file in between your head tags as well.

To change the images just change the file names in the code and make sure the locations are correct.

If you get stuck, can you put it online somewhere for more guidance please?
