[resolved] slideshows side by side (5 posts)

    Hi I think this app is just great! Thanks.
    I am trying to put three slideshows side by side on the width of my web page so that each slideshow plays as soon as the page opens. The three albums I want to show have words in them and so as the slideshows play random sentences are created across the three slideshows.
    1) How do I get three slideshows to run side by side, all in line with each other, not staggered. I have 600px to play with across the web page.
    2) I need the three slideshows to run at different speeds so that when they loop they play a different set of words.
    Hope this is possible. You can see the basic idea of three slideshows at different speeds in the sidebar of my front page at http://www.dhbricolage.net.
    Thanks
    David

    Put in the page/post, using the TEXT editor ( not the Visual !!! ) (example):

    <div style="width:200px; float:left;">[wppa type="slideonly" album="2" size="200" ][/wppa]</div>
    <div style="width:200px; float:left;">[wppa type="slideonly" album="22" size="200" ][/wppa]</div>
    <div style="width:200px; float:left;">[wppa type="slideonly" album="32" size="200" ][/wppa]</div>
    <script type="text/javascript" >
    _wppaTimeOut[1] = 1000; // First slide time = 1000 millisec
    _wppaTimeOut[2] = 1250;
    _wppaTimeOut[3] = 1500;
    </script>

    Hi Jacob
    That is just brilliant. It is just what I needed. I am so impressed by your dedication to your work in getting back to me so quickly.
    I can now adjust the variables for speed and space and album number. Fantastic.
    I had one problem which is worth mentioning for all the other numpties (numbties?) (newbies) (noobs) who might be trying to do the same thing with very little knowledge.
    I tried putting the code into an already used page even tho I used the TEXT view of the edit screen. I also flipped back and forth between TEXT and VISUAL. It didn't work. The albums came out under each other and the [div] script was showing. So I made a new page clean of any editing and used the TEXT view. Then the script worked perfectly.
    I will certainly be donating to you.
    Thanks again
    David

    Thank you! Although it looks nice, the Visual editor is a pain in the ... (not only) for me. I use &# 91 (even here i must leave a space between &# and 91 while as code decalred) for [ a lot on the Docs & Demos site to show a shortcode.
    If i accidently flip back and forth to the visual editor, all my example shortcodes are getting alive! All simple & codes are translated to chars, even the code for % so also the example scripts are getting alive. brrr.
