I am posting this here only because I figured it is a tip or trick or can be. ;)
many of you I am sure are familiar with the screen saver included with Mac OSX you know the picture one that slowly zooms in on a picture then fades out into another picture that may slowly zoom in or pan the next picture and it just cycles through the pictures in the folder specified…?
As stated in other post I am learning JQurery. and I have seen elements of this in other uses but never together so I am assuming that it can be done.
Does anyone know where I can find this plugin or think that they could make one?
Many uses for this… Portfolios, gallery, headers, banners, etc. Me? well I am working on a site for a relative (I am sure you all have been there, This one I owe money too so it is not totally a FREEBE.) He restores and remodels homes so I am using it as an intro graphic of sorts that will also act as a quickie gallery on the home page.
However… in my jQuery infantile mind I am having a hard time getting it to work… What I don’t understand is that the plugin creator makes the following comment…
You will also need jQuery itself, of course. Don’t forget to invoke CrossSlide inside a DOM-ready handler, like every other visual effect:
then it list the following code
//put your jQuery code here
Okay… I have the Plugin code and ofcourse I have the latest jQuery and I have made 3 sites now using jQuery elements so why is it that this is the first time I am learning about DOM-Ready Handlers? and where do I put the code mentioned and what jquery code is he talking about….
:oops: :? :?:
Any instruction on this would be greatly appreciated.
Well after spending 2 more hours I got it to work… don’t ask me how i did it… I still have no idea as to what the heck a DOM-Ready Handler is but so far what I wanted to accomplish is being accomplished. now for a little more bling and I will post in the website gallery what I have done.
In the Mean time if anyone would care to enlighten or point me in the direction to where I can find out what the DOM is (the resources I found boggle my mind – just leaves me asking more questions :? )
Thanks for the link… I have read it three times and understand that you need to have it. I am embarrassed to say I still don’t get the DOM part. I understand that there is a DOM and you need to put this code in there so it will work…. But if you where to ask me what is the DOM where does it live and why it is there… I would not be able to tell you.
I guess it isn’t important for me to understand to make nice websites… :? ;)
okay… I have created a dev site for this project… I’m a Mac with out parallels so i don’t look at IE until I am excited about what FireFox, Safari, and Opera are showing me or until my client tells me they don’t see what i am talking about.
