    Slide Show in an Editable Region

    suebeee
      I built a site using CSS, made a template and want to be able to incorporate a slide show within one of the editable regions - so that the slide show could be different for each page. The slide show extensions that I've used in the past all have to go into the BODY or the HEAD. I'd really like to retain using the template (and have different slide shows), but can't figure out how to incorporate a slide show into an editable region. I don't know code very well, so be gentle . . .

      Here's the like to the site: http://www.suscoserv.com/aboutus.html

      The left picture is where I'd like to incorporate a faded slide show. Can anyone help me understand how to do this?

          If you want to continue using DW effectively, this will have to change.

          Going in the head is not a problem on a properly created Template page,
          since there is an editable region already placed there for you to use. But
          going in the body tag is definitely a (not insurmountable) problem.

          I see that you are already using PVII products for your menu, so go back
          there and look at their slideshow products. They are Template friendly.
          Alternatively, JQuery (use Google) can do what you are looking for (a fading
          slide rotation) but you will have to get your hands into the code.
