    Linking jquery Slidejs to database in Coldfusion

    jigsawpro34

      Hello. I have a pretty specific problem I'm trying to determine if there is a solution for.

       

      I'm trying to use the following jquery slider, planning to link it to the library website I work for. Once I add the jquery, I want to also be able to link to mySQL database to pull a rotating list of schedules, program information, misc. info, that will be a header/caption with each rotating photo. I've only ever 'added in specific text' with each photo before, and this time want the information to randomly rotate, not necessarily being tied to any photo. There is a possibility I may want a photo here and there to have specific information tied to it, but I'm not sure if I can do both the randomization and customization in one. Not sure if that makes any sense? Is it even possible to do this? Or any suggestions how to get this done, or examples of code? Right now the website is set up with Coldfusion/mySQL and Flash. The flash is what has the randomized text flowing with the images, and we're trying to get away from flash.

      Thanks!

          I have had a quick look at the SlidesJS site. It's straightforward really, even includes sample code and demos. However, it is one of those things you have to get started yourself.

           

          Roll up your sleeves. Install the libraries you need. Get your photos to randomly rotate at least. The questions you will then have will be more specific, hence more fruitful.
