Simple Webpage Slideshow

At work we produce a few websites and have a few “web dashboards”. Wouldn’t it be nice, if public screens around the office could play a little loop mixing the websites and the dashboards together in a slideshow loop?

After an hour of javascript debugging, a nice little generic webpage slideshow was put together, and if you have a similar need a copy is now available in the lab. It’s simple, it should work in most browsers, and it probably has the least features of any slideshow out there.

  • Interesting “Available in the lab” link doesn’t work.

    Yes it does 🙂

    I might have been quite invisible as the slide show opens an iframe with the contents – and the first page in the slideshow was the frontpage of this site.

    I’ve changed the order of the pages in the slideshow sample, so it should be more apparent what’s going on…

    hi, really like this script.
    I'm using it to fabricate a cheapo webcasting solution (combined with a browser in kiosk-mode). I'm trying to make a few adaptations to the script, however i'm no scripting specialist at all. Could you possibly help me out?

    What i'd like to do is set different 'slideschowtimes' for different pages. So page 1 displays for 5 seconds, page 2 for 10, etc.

    Tried to place different “var slideShowTime” variables in between the list of pages, that doesn't work. Also tried to create a new array, but then only the pages of the last array get displayed.

    Really aprreciate your help.
