    Question Photo Scrollbar??


    Hello,
    I am trying to make a webpage and there is something that I want on it, however, I have no idea how to get it. I want a scrollbar that has jpegs. I want a person to be able to scroll through thumbnails (in the scrollbar) and click on it and be brought to the link.
    Does anyone know of a script that I can get that will do that? I know nothing about writing scripts.
    Thank you to anyone that helps.

    I don't mean to be pedantic, but do you mean a scroll bar underneath/beside the list of thumbnails rather than a scrollbar (like down the side of this page) actually containing pictures?

    I want a scrollbar like the side, that will scroll through the thumbnails, and not the whole page. I want to make a page small enough that there will not be a scollbar, however, there will be a lot of thumbnails that will need to be scrolled through.

    On the right side of the page, I want to have a section with one thumbnail on top of the other, and so on. When you click on the thumbnail, it will link you to another page. Maybe I should be using the term icon, I don't know.
    There will be a lot of thumbnails, so I will need a scrollbar for them. I do not want the number of thumbnails to edit the length of the page. If you still don't understand, then please reply. I don't know anything about this stuff.
    I know its difficult to understand. Believe me, I'm not sure if I can describe it too easily.
    Thanks for helping/reading.

    Actually, I don't think this is exactly what you had in mind, but it's rather neat

    Dynamic Drive

    I'm sure that I've seen something on that website that's more like what you were after, but I haven't been able to find it.

    Take a look and see what you think.

    Yes, I think that will do just fine. Each photo is a link?
    Where did you get that, or can I please get something like that?

    The first link is what I believe I want. not the second one. I don't want to do a photo slide show. I want it to link to different pages.

    The first link is just vapour-ware I'm afraid.
    It only exists in my paint package

    It might be possible using i-frames, but I don't know how cross-browser compatible they are.

    I'll keep looking though. It's an interesting problem.

    Found it:

    I think that any of the top three links from THIS PAGE should do what you're after...

    ...hopefully

    I think that will work perfectly. I just hope I can figure out how to insert pictures (as links).

    No problem.

    If you get really stuck give me a shout, but it's probably like the blind leading the blind from here on in


    Good luck!

    Andy
