Can you link to this slideshow? Also, what browser are you using (Internet Explorer, Firefox, or something else?). And are you on dial-up or broadband?

Good point. For any other CSS stylers here are the id's of the slideshow containers:
  • #title: contains title of image, link to image and the counter
  • #my_title: this is the link (and title text) to the image
  • #counter: this contains the counter
  • #the_image: this is the actual image element
  • #footer: this holds the text that says "click to pause"

So to hide the counter, add this to your CSS:
Code: Select all
#counter {
   display: none;
}


To set the default height of images, add this (please note that this will force smaller images to this height as well causing a "stretch" effect):
Code: Select all
#the_image {
   height: 500px
}

You may find success using max-height instead of height, but I don't believe it is supported in all browsers.[/list]

Thanks ctstone!

So for those who like me don't need to see the title and such above the image, putting the following somewhere in the body of your CSS, works fine to take it away.

#my_title {
display: none;
}

Great new feature! Ran flawlessly.
Your efforts are much appreciated.

A suggestion - any possibility of having the option for the slideshow to autosize the image after taking into account the title and slides x of xx sequence info?

Thanks again!

Here's the gallery http://www.pbase.com/sheila

I use IE, and I'm on broadband. I am at work at the moment (which is also on broadband but which is usually slower than my home PC) and it works fine now. The problems I had on my home PC was that one image would stay on for about 40 seconds, then it would proceed but the second image would only half open before it went to another image. By that time, the captions did not match the particular image.

I find it very irritating that my pictures are by default shown at the Large size instead of Original. To compound this the smaller sizes are rendered at a very poor quality making them and the slideshow useless.

Just when I think this site can't get any better, IT DOES! I'm still excited over the stats, and now slideshows too! You guys are great. Thanks for all the hard work, and providing us with such a fantastic, professional site. :D

Well done, well done, pBase. Once again, you have come up with just what was needed.

What a great site. (I tell everyone!)

More power to your elbow....translates as "keep up the good work".

Wow. Can't tell you how great it is to have someone who's
working on this talk back to us with good info.

I think PBase must have had some kind of cash infusion
recently, and whatever the reason is, it is a real boon to have
you folks working on new features and then discussing them
with us, explaining how they work and taking and giving
suggestions. Good stuff.

Have just realized that in some galleries "Tree View/Thumbnails/Slideshow" doesn't always show so I can't resume a slideshow in the middle of a gallery if I've paused it. I'm using Firefox 1.5.0.4

This is a Javascript slideshow, which means that there may be some incompatibilities with certain web browsers. As of this writing, the slideshow has been tested in the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, and Opera.

As of now, there are no slideshow controls (simpler is easier, right??). But we may offer controls in the future.

Please respond here with any bugs or feature requests. For bugs, please include your browser name and version.

Great job pbase fellas~
one suggestion: if we are able to change the duration of the slides would be nice.

Thanks!
