HOW TO Create a Rotating Banner in SharePoint using HTML/CSS/JavaScript


This code shows how to create a rotating banner in SharePoint using HTML/CSS/JavaScript.


Embed the entire code in a Content Editor Web Part.



<script type="text/javascript">

                                //** Featured Content Slider script- (c) Dynamic Drive DHTML code library:

//** May 2nd, 08'- Script rewritten and updated to 2.0.

//** June 12th, 08'- Script updated to v 2.3, which adds the following features:

                                                //1) Changed behavior of script to actually collapse the previous content when the active one is shown, instead of just tucking it underneath the later.

                                                //2) Added setting to reveal a content either via "click" or "mouseover" of pagination links (default is former).

                                                //3) Added public function for jumping to a particular slide within a Featured Content instance using an arbitrary link, for example.


//** July 11th, 08'- Script updated to v 2.4:

                                                //1) Added ability to select a particular slide when the page first loads using a URL parameter (ie: mypage.htm?myslider=4 to select 4th slide in "myslider")

                                                //2) Fixed bug where the first slide disappears when the mouse clicks or mouses over it when page first loads.

Could you please explain more about where to put the code? I don't understand "Content Editor Web Part".

Anonymous said...

Wow, is that comment for real?

schuess said...

That is great, but how do you do it if you want the banner to be in the header/masthead of the masterpage?

If you don't know what a content enditor web part is, you might as well find a new job...Wawa is hiring...

terrible.Should explain better.All the codes should be in one file.I dont think so
