    I just need to know if this javascript code is correct! I hope to hear from you soon!


    I forgot to write this in the first reply, but how many pictures can I add to the slider. I am trying to add over 250 photo images. I hope to hear from you soon.

    Hey Christian :)

    250 images?! ooff… well what you have to think about is that the code that Chris wrote does not have any preloading techniques, because its really only designed for a few images. Imagine loading up your site and all its images, and then having to load 250 images within that slider… considering most servers would really only let about 3 requests at a time happen, that’s a lot of loading…

    You could still do it, what I would think about doing is modifying the script so that it would load the images in groups of 5 after the main page is all set up and the first 5 images are rolling… then it would be preloading the images out of site without any impact the the users experience.

    Although to be honest I would not recommend doing that, and it begs the question why 250 images? that’s a lot of images even for a photography portfolio site!


    Okay! Do you know of any sites or programs that have Flash Banner or Sliders that allow you to upload over 250 images for a reasonable price? Also is the javascript code written correctly. I just want to know if the codes are placed in the right spots.
    I hope to hear from you soon.
