Is it possible to create, with javascript, a webpage that pans the main page after 10 seconds, then proceeds to the next one after 20 seconds... etc etc. (no flash please!)

Has anyone seen this in action? any examples? thought? Thanks!

Just to check that you are asking what I think you are, do you mean like this page only the whole page rather than a panel?

If so, the technique is generally referred to a a carousel, and there are a few jquery plugins which can handle it. (I had no luck getting Dynamic Drive's step carousel plugin working, but found another which does the job well.)

A plugin which supports Ajax loading of the background would work well, as it would speed up initial page load.

The AnythingSlider plugin does it all for you.

  • I think i'll try this one out. Pretty clean and simple. :) Gary Hepting over 9 years ago

yes exactly that! That is pretty much identical to what I want... thanks a lot for finding an example, just that helps me out a bunch. If you have any more tips for recreating it, feel free to provide insight!

Also to note: I'd like my carousel to slide through multiple .php pages... is that possible? Or can it only slide through elements rooted in one .html/.php file?

Try out jQuery Cycle. I use it for just about everything these days. It rocks.

Here a demonstration of it in action with flexible HTML content: (go down to the bottom of the page where is says "Non-Image Content")

  • Note: For the functionality you're talking about you'd definitely want to configure it to "pause" (pause: true) when mouse is focused on slide content, or it could be a little frustrating to visitors trying to click links or read content, etc. :) Gary Hepting over 9 years ago
