Topic: Auto Flash Slideshow
This script will allow you to point the slideshow to a folder and have it automatically load all the images from it. Follow the steps below and all you will have to do is upload image to a folder and they will appear in the slideshow.
You will need to download this file: auto.zip
Unzip the file and open auto.php. At the very top set $file_dir to the directory you want the gallery to read from. There are a couple of other options:
$show_titles will allow you to display image titles as captions (without the .jpg)
$omit_chars allows you to set the number of characters to be omited from the beginning of the image title. So, 01_image_title.jpg will show up as "image_title" in the caption. Useful for sorting.
$link_to_image lets you link each slide to the image directly.
In your slideshow.html change the following line:
var so = new SWFObject("slideshow.swf", "gallery", "100%", "100%", "7", "#333333");
var so = new SWFObject("slideshow.swf?file=auto.php", "gallery", "100%", "100%", "7", "#333333");
Now you will need to upload everything to a server that supports php (most do). The gallery will not work on your local computer.
