Reply to "Need help getting slideshow to display in custom template"

Hi Danno, you were right it was inserted in the wrong space. Also I was selecting # of images in the one page lister which seems to cause some kind of bug. It now seems to act like any other Auctiva template & works like a charm! She was able to fix it for me as I am html impaired. THANK YOU so much for your help!!! The only other issues Ive noticed with custom templates is 1. after revising an active listing I lose the background graphics. & 2. it appears there is some issue with items that are listed in the GTC format, any thoughts would be great. Thanks again for your help, Sincerely, Suzanne

I am aware that the Custom Template builder doesn't itself have a direct method to insert that code. You'd have to insert it yourself. I'd been doing some experiments with new arrangements of thumbnails, so I'm very aware of the code methods. It's not impossible, just a little more difficult than average.

I'm puzzled why they wouldn't offer that option for your custom template? Either I'm missing something or not understanding the problem. Confused I wonder if there is a licensing or copyright infringement issue, but using Auctiva methods on an Auctiva template build doesn't seem like a problem to me.


Edit: Thinking on the problem.....I'll guess they are seeing the varying number of pictures as the limitation, i.e. it's not a fixed coding effort (in their thinking).
