How does website HTML slideshow work

Slideshow in Extreme Thumbnail Generator is a JavaScript that shows next image page after slideshow timeout elapses. When the last image page is reached - slideshow continues from the first image page. Usually a new image or text link is added to the image page navigation which allows to start and stop the slideshow. If user clicks a link that changes the image page (for example Next image button or First image button), the slideshow is stopped. You can take a look at the sample HTML slideshow gallery here.

One important thing to notice here - if your gallery does not have image pages (thumbnails are linked directly to full-size images, or you used a Lightbox effect) then you can't have a slideshow.

Adding slideshow to the modified template

Most of the built-in gallery templates already have the necessary code and graphics for a slideshow. Here is a way how to add an HTML slideshow to the template that currently does not have one.

You have to add an element that will allow controlling the slideshow to the code of the template of the image page or image page navigation menu. It can be an image, text link or button with Extreme Thumbnail Generator special tag in the OnClick event handler. Here is an example with the text link:

<a href=# onclick=[#imagemenubar.slideshow_on_click#]>Start/stop slideshow</a>

Extreme Thumbnail Generator's built-in template editor can be used for it.
