Hey everyone I was wondering what you guys thought about having a php slideshow on a website. Is is a good idea? Why or why not? Could I put user controls into it? What are its benefits or downfall versus a Jquery slideshow. Thanks in advance hope to hear you soon.

If you want to have a PHP only slideshow, it means that for every action you will have to reload the page. If you use jQuery, then you can respond better to user interaction, and don't have to keep reloading the page.

Should you be interested, I have a simple demo here.


You can use php and have user controls, but it can't be animated. The way to do it is to have the controls on the main page and the slides in an iframe.

To be honest this is entirely too much hassle for the results you get, and you'd be much better adapting one of the excellent scripts at Dynamic Drive, which are javascript.
