Hello,
I have been looking for different image galleries to incorporate on my website, and I came across this specific one on the Dynamic Drive website. Does anyone know if this type of gallery is compatible with Yola? I would love to have it on my site, and if anyone could help me out with putting the code onto my site, I would be grateful. My website is: www.FarInspiredDesigns.com, and here is the link to the site where the image gallery is located: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicin...

Thanks so much!

Hi Fariha,

It would be easy to apply to your site but you need a Yola PRO account to host javascript files.

Let me know if you have a pro account and I will help you get on your site.

Hi UK Duke,
When you say a yola pro account, do you mean that you need to buy the domain name, or is it something else?

Actually, I see what you mean. Unfortunately I don't have a yola pro account. Maybe you can help me out with something else? Do you know of any nice transitional galleries that may be similar, and that is compatible with my yola site? :)

Wow, that is a cool gallery...Aww hun, I wish I knew of another one similar to that, because you know how much I love your site!

Well anyway, I used to use this slideshow (not really a gallery I suppose)... http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicin...

Few things about it...
People don't have to click anything...
Did make my computer run louder as it was changing slides. LOL
I think the images have to be the same size, (can't really remember) or at least should be...
You can slow it down (it's very fast in the demo)
It is a translucent slideshow and you can increase or decrease how translucent it is, but it only appears as translucent in IE and 1 other browser I believe, not Firefox : ( ...

Maybe you could put it somewhere on your site, if not in your gallery...
IDK, Good Luck tho...

Aw thank you very much! :D I think I may have found an image gallery for now that suits the purpose, I'm using pictobrowser and it displays the images nicely, although it bothers me that pictobrowser has included its name on the gallery - _ -"
However its not like flickr or slideshow where the name is insanely bold or huge, which is nice! Thank you so much for your help though! And I did try that slideshow out as well, and the complication was that all the images had to be the same size as well.
But thank u thank u thank u for your help! Its much appreciated! :)

Oh ok, so yeah that's what I thought, I think that's one of the reasons I stopped using it too...

Yeah I co-sign, I don't like it when they have the site's name, watermark, or the "get widget" tab on those things, when you want a professional site, you don't want all that. Maybe this is why I like your site so much, we think the same way (about site design anyway)... LOL

I took a look at the gallery how you have it now, it's cool... Keep up the good work, please, it is refreshing to see such an excellent site design even while using somewhat limited tools.

Fariha,

When I answered your question I did'nt bother to look at your site.. I have now and I'd just like to say that its an amazing design - I'm jealous of your design skills.

The image gallery you decided on is really nice, works well.

Keep up your great work, Yola should be proud that you design your site using there service... All the makings of a featured site.

NOTE TO YOLA STAFF - FEATURE THIS SITE :) http://www.farinspireddesigns.com/
