Rotate Script in Conjunction

Same site as the last post, different issue:

I used a simple script inside the index page to rotate a series of 5 images that, once I updated to the menu version 3.2.5,3.2.11 - the image rotate script no longer functions.

Of course I can post that script here, but I thought it might be simpler to ask if anyone knows of a simple rotating image metod compatible with Andy's menu script.

No fading or rolling just cycling of images.

Thanks a million for the help...the cycled images would ideally function below the menu here:

I have viewed the "dyn_images_array.js" but need to use something other than animated gifs...to more easily replace images, etc.

Thanks again-

I would first recommend that you upgrade to version 3.3.17, the 3.3.x line has a lot more functionality and bug fixes from the 3.2.x line. Second, I'm not sure what you are trying to acomplish here. You can use animated gif files in the menu just like a regular gif, and you can have a mouseover image effect, and you could do both at the same time. Perhaps if you detail what you are trying to do we can provide some ideas?

On the page listed, there was a script to cycle through 5 map images (in jpeg format). I realize we can change this to gif and put the five in an animated gif, but the desire is to simplify the exchange of images...e.g. I take a picture with my digital camera that I want to include in the cycle or replace an existing image.

In that I am not actually in charge of this aspect, I am trying to make it easiest for the user, e.g. if the series is image1.jpg, image2.jpg etc and all the user need do is drop a new image of using the same naming scheme, they can update the series...they take a picture, name it image3.jpg and drop it in the directory, it replaces the former image3.jpg...

I believe in the case of using the dynamic array, I'm good to go, and will use it when appropriate.

Frankly, a script that functions well With the menu would be nice to know so I could use them individually as well and simplify the number of scripts in my "toolbox."

The rotate image script that quit with the newer menu script is:

codelifter.com/main/javascript/slideshow1.html

It's author suggested some changes (renaming "j" > "jjj" etc.) but ultimately could not get the "down and dirty script" to work with the menu.

I am in the process of updating from 3.2.5 to the most recent release per your posts.

Continued Thanks!

Stuart

I have implemented 3.3.11,3.3.17 of the menu files and the rotate image listed above still does not function.

I will of course continue to experiment with other image rotating methods, and appreciate any suggestions.

Andy might be able to look at this rotate image script of yours and see if there are functions conflicting with our menu. It may be a simple matter as you suggest of renaming a few calls. As long as you call the script right from the menu item and it has no function conflicts it should work fine. do you have a testbed site we can look at to try to help further?
Thanks,
Yadin

I too am using a javascript to rotate images (not the same as the one above). It worked OK with previous updates upto and including 3.3.13. I then skipped a few updates and on installing 3.3.17 I realised it had stopped functioning. I upgraded to 3.3.18 and this fixed the problem.

Simply changing to .18 of menu.js did the trick!

Thanks!
