Slideshow Code for Dead Letter Art

[ Icon: DLa Joker ] Pardon this post! I am posting this information online for personal references purposes. I may need to revisit this code at some point in the future, and if I post it here I will always know where to find it (trust me, it would disappear into the abyss if I tried storing it offline). So, although it is intended solely for myself, feel free to extract and use anything you like, as long as commented attribution remains. What we have here are two different methods for including a slideshow on a web page. The first method employs the techniques discussed in this article, while the second method skips the Flash and employs only the JavaScript portion of the slideshow. Here is some additional help with embedding Flash content, including slideshows, and JavaScript techniques.

Main Slideshow

<?php // main slideshow // ?>
<div class="midright">
<!-- slideshow inclusion by perishablepress.com -->
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--//--><![CDATA[//><!-- 
if (flash.ver[7]) {
   document.write(
      '<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" width="300" height="225" id="slideshow" align="middle">' +
      '<param name="movie" value="http://deadletterart.com/dla/images/slideshow/slideshow.swf" />' +
      '<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />' +
      '<param name="quality" value="high" />' +
      '<param name="bgcolor" value="#000" />' +
      '<param name="base" value="." />' +
      '<embed src="http://deadletterart.com/dla/images/slideshow/slideshow.swf" base="." quality="high" bgcolor="#000" width="300" height="225" name="slideshow" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />' +
      '<\/object>'
   );
}
else if (flash.installed) {
   document.write('<form id="slideshow" name="slideshow" action="null"><a href="#" onmouseover="this.href=theimage[i][1];return false">');
   document.write('<img name="imgslide" class="y" id="imgslide" src="' + theimage[0][0] + '" border="0" alt="DLa Slideshow" />');
   document.write('<\/a><\/form>');
} else {
   document.write('<form id="slideshow" name="slideshow" action="null"><a href="#" onmouseover="this.href=theimage[i][1];return false">');
   document.write('<img name="imgslide" class="y" id="imgslide" src="' + theimage[0][0] + '" border="0" alt="DLa Slideshow" />');
   document.write('<\/a><\/form>');
}
//--><!]]>
</script>
<noscript><div><img src="http://deadletterart.com/dla/images/slideshow/1.jpg" class="y" alt="Serious Business" /></div></noscript>
</div>

Alternate Slideshow

<?php // alt slideshow // ?>
<div class="midright">
 <!-- slideshow inclusion by perishablepress.com -->
 <form id="slideshow" name="slideshow" action="null">
  <div>
   <a href="#" onmouseover="this.href=theimage[i][1];return false">
    <script type="text/javascript">
     <!--//--><![CDATA[//><!--
      document.write('<img name="imgslide" class="y" id="imgslide" src="'+theimage[0][0]+'" border="0" alt="DLa Slideshow" />');
     //--><!]]>
    </script>
   </a>
  </div>
  <noscript>
   <p><img src="http://deadletterart.com/dla/images/slideshow/1.jpg" class="y" alt="Serious Business" /></p>
  </noscript>
 </form>
</div>
