It seems that you could use their internal linking approach and do something like this:
<a href="#1" class="link">home</a>,
<a href="#2" class="link">about</a> ,
<a href="#3" class="link">contact us</a>
I think the important thing to make sure of is that your #navigation with .link items is inside of the #slides div
e.g.: http://afterlight.com.au/sitepoint/posts/804414-linking-up-slides/ (also attached as a .txt file)
thanks aussiejohn, i did try that href#1 thing, didnt seem to work..I had to search around for another slider that had linking..Heres my site now: http://bluecrushdesign.co.za/imagin82 ...problem is this slider doesnt have automatic slideshow option (ie scrolls to next slide even without clicking on arrows after a few seconds) ..any idea how to add that?
(edit it did work!!! yay!!! i might play with this one as it has slide every few seconds..you dont know anything about getting rid of that lag between about and contact us?? ))) - and how to link the links again in the "contact" slide out? as soon as i put them in a slide out they dont work..
I'd probably recommend against automatic sliding for any sliders except image / light content carousels.
While certainly the site doesn't have a lot of content, you still want to make sure that visitors have the chance to read each page, or that if they go to another tab, program, whatever, and come back they aren't all of a sudden on another page (i.e. you want to manage their expectations)
I'm not seeing any lag between those slides, maybe you fixed this already?
I'm not sure what you mean here, are you talking about the links to other internal pages? If you're using a different slider it's likely there will be a different syntax for it now. (Take a look at the Cross Linking section here: http://www.ndoherty.biz/demos/coda-slider/2.0)
Hey there, I went back to original link and played with that coz I got your linking to work. If u look at my original url - and original slider can u see a tab that says "contact? ".click on that and it slides out. I am trying to get those links to link up to the slides but for some reason these links in this contact slide out don't work. Did I do something wrong ? Or is it some sort of js thing that won't let u link to slides when navigation is in a js slideout tab?
