I want to get 4 or 5 images to automatically display to the next one after about 4 seconds, is there a way to do this?

Many thanks

Hi gr4nt4

The easiest way is to create an iframe and set it to display pages with one image on each. Set the re-direct and time display on PageProperties > Redirect tab for each page.

Otherwise, create a flashfile or install another add-on to do that.

Hello Gr4nt4

You could always add a JAlbum in and i-frame. I have a tutorial for this on my website here. You can see three in action here (click on the links within the page to switch between the three albums and click Play Slideshow).

With JAlbum you can decide whether or not to have the slideshow play automatically (you sound as though your choice is an automatic slideshow), whether or not to have thumbnails and whether or not to include the slide bar navigation - very versatile!

Hope this helps

Hi Gr4nt4

What I do is to create a small flash gallery (I use Flash Slidedshow Maker Professional, but any similar software could be used) and simply insert it where I want it to appear on the page by using the command Insert > Media > Flash and adding the appropriate files produced from the creation of the gallery (i.e. no iFrames involved).

An example is here (halfway down the page) if this is what you're looking for. Incidentally, navigation has been removed as it's work in progress and this is purely for demo purposes.

Hope that helps.

Using the iframe and pages with re-direct method means that it can all be done within WebPlus.

Otherwise you need to install and configure another app and integrate it into WP.

There is always more than one way to solve a problem.
