    I would like to place a small piece of information, a picture, some text, and a link on my web site that scrolls through about 10 or so different ones. How can I get this done. Maybe using php.


    Just a small piece of information maybe in the top right corner of my home page that scrolls through a preset number of links to other pages on my site.

    Even if I set a page with a small amount of information on it that scrolls through a set number of pages then I add an include where I want it on my main page.

    Well, you could do it with javascript - a jQuery scroller, adjust the size how you want and place it wherever you like.
    Many sites that use jQuery in this way have a big scroller or slider on the index page, but there's no reason why you can't size and position it the way you want to.

    Thanks for the reply. How do I do that? I have been asking this question a lot and everyone seems to say the same thing but I can't get how to do it. I need the code or something.

    Thanks

    I'm afraid I don't have the time to research that for you - I'll move the thread to the javascript forum - you'll have a better chance of a good answer there.

    jQuery is a library for Javascript, and it has many 'plugins' which extend it to perform extra functions. So there are many many sliders for it. One of the easiest I've come across is the Nivo Slider which I like to use. It will allow you to have images, captions and titles on your slider.

    [COLOR=rgb(20, 20, 20)]So what you need is to first download the plugin from here, it comes with a demo so check it out. It also comes with a version of jQuery so you won't need to download that.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(20, 20, 20)]
    [/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgb(20, 20, 20)]First thing is to organise all the files you'll need. You'll need to put the CSS for the theme you want, the jquery and nivo javascript files and images into the correct place, then link them all in your header.[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(20, 20, 20)]You'll then need to put in some javascript and html to set the thing off. To do all this you should follow this guide:[/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgb(20, 20, 20)]http://nivo.dev7studios.com/support/...-plugin-usage/[/COLOR]
    [COLOR=rgb(20, 20, 20)]
    [/COLOR]

    [COLOR=rgb(20, 20, 20)]If you find you prefer another slider then it will be essentially the same stuff you have to do. They'll all come with demos and stuff so just take what you need. Make use of Google if you get stuck.[/COLOR]
