Do you mean you want people to scroll horizontally? If so, think twice as
that can cause confusion to end-users. That said, it does get used on
occasion as an interesting effect. If that's what you are after, you pretty
much need to layout a block of HTML and put it in a container narrower than
the content and enable scrolling. Making a really wide web page, for
instance, will cause default horizontal scrollbars in the browsers. Making a
really wide block of HTML and putting it in a fixe-width DIV with 'overflow:
scroll' will cause the div to have horizontal scrollbars.
Personally, when online shopping, I like to see a page with lots of
decent-sized thumbnails that I can scroll through vertically, with each
linking to a nice sized 'large' image to see details.
thanks darrel. i initially tried the thumbnail linking the large image thing, but it just kept swapping the image with the same size.
That's how image swaps work when you are swapping out the trigger image. I
guess darrel assumed you were using the trigger image to swap out some other
image on the page, which is what I assumed as well. If you want to replace
a thumbnail image with a larger image, you will have a problem, since the
two images MUST be the same size, normally. You have two options:
1. Make them the same size by adding canvas to the thumbnail image, or
2. Manually remove the dimensions from the thumbnail image's <img> tag
Either will work, although both have disadvantages that may render them
