Hi I am looking for a slideshow similar to this one http://melistudio.com.au/portfolio.html

I like the feature of being able to click on the links on the menu on the left hand side. Straight flash slideshows will not be able to be seen on iphones and ipads. Any sugggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks

Honestly, I don't think you'll find one. But the reason I think that is because it's behaving kinda weird. I don't think anyone in the jQuery community would write something like that.

Maybe someone else have seen something similar though. Google around a little bit. There's plenty of pages online that lists a bunch.

That being said, you could probably write it yourself. Do a few tutorials and you'll find the framework really easy to use. Even a non-JS guy like me can write jQuery :)

Works perfectly on my mac using firefox, what setup are you using to browse it?

I must have read your post to be able to question your comment regarding because it's behaving kinda weird. Yes I mean the example site. I will take your advice on board and look at some tutorials on jquery. I did google jquery slideshows and like you say there are many but I just thought that maybe someone at the forum had seen one that uses the links in this way. Thanks for your reply.

My fault, I thought your first and second post were from different people.. ooops.

The site you linked to works as intended I'm sure, the slideshow just 'slides' weird. Not an error, but just a weird implementation.

Agreed, an odd install...

Wot, Google "wow slider" and go to their site & take a look at what they have. I have it and it pretty much will do what you're looking for. You can see fade transitions on a site I made for a photographer www.firstbreathcreations.com (http://www.firstbreathcreations.com) (Jim, he wanted it exactly as you see it... )

Another route is to go to www.dynamicdrive.com (http://www.dynamicdrive.com) . They have some pretty wicked stuff & it's all open source.
