Solved Slideshow in a widget?

Post by SophieDophs on August 23rd 2012, 6:16 pm

Does anyone know how to set up a photo slideshow in a widget on phpBB2?

I have some mini photos that I'd like to show and I think it would look really cool to display them this way in a column widget.

Hope this makes sense!

Thanks guys.

Have you tried that nivo slider? Think it could work for small images, just would require to reduce the width.

You could also use a simple scroll code and add as many pics as you want, change the direction..etc.

Code:
<marquee behavior="scroll" direction="left"><img src="URL OF IMAGE GOES HERE" width=" " height=" " alt=" " /><img src="URL OF IMAGE GOES HERE" width=" " height=" " alt=" " /><img src="URL OF IMAGE GOES HERE" width=" " height=" " alt=" " ></marquee>

Thanks Sanket. I had a look at the threads but it does seem a bit complicated for me.

Thanks runawayhorses, that looks a lot easier.

Edit: Works fantastically, thanks again! Btw any idea what code would also be needed to adjust the scrolling speed?
