A jQuery/browser problem was discovered in which the height of the grouped images was being incorrectly determined. In some browsers, the height of the group was determined as the combined height of the images rather than the specified CSS height value of the group object. This resulted in the images “jumping” on the screen. While a simple code fix would take care of the problem, there did not seem to be much point in patching code that was never intended to be used on a HTML page produced by SiteSpinner. So I decided to rewrite the script taking into account the way SiteSpinner publishes HTML for its objects. The resulting code is smaller and handles any number of image groups on the page. In addition, there is no longer any need to add code to each image or make any changes using the Object Editor.
Since this new code can handle multiple image groups, the Simple Slideshow 2 tutorial has been removed.
If you have been trying to test HTML5/CSS3 features in SS, or have run across CSS problems in a browser (IE for example) when adding code, then you are probably aware that the SS quirks-mode DOCTYPE may be the problem.
I have developed a small program which will allow you to modify the SS generated DOCTYPE statement in a published page to conform to either HTML4 Strict, HTML4 Transitional, or HTML5 standards. It also allows the option to revert back to the SS DOCTYPE.
The program is currently in a beta stage and I am looking for some beta testers. I have been testing under Win 7 with SS-Pro. It would be helpful if the program can be tested under XP and Vista using either SS or SS-Pro. If you are interested in helping to test the program, please e-mail me (under "Links" on the right). Please let me know what environment you will be using so I can track any specific OS problems.
If you’re the type of web developer who likes long pages, or a page with a lot of text, then maybe you would like to add a search feature to your page that allows your visitor to search for text and highlight it when found. If so, then the Find Text & Highlight script is one such tool you can use.
