I’m new to Jquery and trying to achieve what I would assume should be pretty simple: a basic fading slideshow. My goal:
have a list of images that fade from one to the next. once the last images shows, don’t fade it but start over from the first image.
I looked at http://css-tricks.com/snippets/jquery/cycle-through-a-list/. This works, kinda but since I don’t fully understand what each line is doing I can’t learn it or change it to do what I need.
I’ve looked at other tutorials on fading slideshows but they don’t explain the entire code leavng me going "ok, but what does this part do?" and not getting the desired effect i want.
I know I can copy and paste instead of writing my own but I want to learn how to do this not just borrow code. I’m looking for any help you guys can give.
Why reinvent the wheel?
True there are plenty of places that have already made plugins for me to use. However, writing it myself will help me learn the language better.
I agree. jQuery is very fun and easy to learn, here are some helpful resources.
I would fully recommend watching this in order as it will take you from beginner to advanced in a very fluid and intuitive swell.
For this one, you could start by filtering at the top right corner, going from easy, to medium, to hard.
