    Slide show? Where to do my research

    Level 7
      I am happy to do my own research but I would like to ask if someone could
      point me in to the right direction. First of all, is this something that
      Dreamweaver 8 can do or do I need to go to another program. I saw this
      effect on another website and wrote in and asked what he used. He responded
      that he used Dreamweaver but don't know if he understood my question
      correctly. I am interested in creating a small slide show at the top of the
      web page I am working on. I am interested in having this "slide show" ( I am
      not sure that is the right terminology for what I have in mind)
      automatically start and switch to a new photo say every 10 seconds. I would
      like to see the page pull up a new photo randomly every time someone opens
      the page and scroll through a set of (perhaps twenty) photos that I change
      out every once in a while. How can I accomplish this or more specifically
      where can I find the information? Some here like to say search such and
      such. What words should I plug in to get what I am looking for?



      Thank you in advance.



      Best Regards,

      Jwebdesigner

          go to a bookstore and grab some Flash books and look for an example. or maybe "View Source" on a website where you see that effect.

          my quick ideas.

                This is one reason to look very long and hard at the new Microsoft products
                for web design.
                You just don't see this kind of crap (response) to a question. I see no
                reference or relevance to the question ask in this response.
                Why did you respond like this. It makes you look like some kind of idiot!

                "your site was created by god? and he doesn't know how to do a slideshow???"
                If anyone does he (GOD) does.
                "made on the Cross 2,000 years ago."
                I think it must be 2007 years ago by now.

                  if you go to the posters site (as found through their email address), that's the first thing you see.... i just thought it was weird that the creator of all mankind doesn't know how to do a slideshow.

                    Why would you even bother to search out their web address.... it wasn't even
                    mentioned in their post.. the OP wasn't flaunting the page in any way....


                    > i just thought it was weird .....

                    and this is not the first time you have posted something absolutely
                    ridiculous that has nothing to do with the original question!

                      Thank you "johnDough407". Yes, I am looking into some Flash books... good
                      idea about the View Source. I checked out the site that I just came across
                      and they did theirs with Javascript. So I have leads to look into.

                      Thank you again for your quick thoughts!

                        Bad form

                        If it matters to you that much, you should take up your complaint with the
                        website itself... That would be preferable... rather than introducing
                        something not relevant to the question (or to this forum for that matter).
                        It spoils the professional atmosphere of these forums.

                          I typed in a reply to you Murray this morning but I don't see it come up on
                          the news letter line up... strange. So I will send again. Thank you Murray.
                          I have been looking over the link you recommended. I'm impressed with their
                          lineup. Thank you for the introduction. I had seen some of their tutorials
                          (from your signature) but have not gotten into their products. Thank you.
