[Pro] Complicated Request, is this Possible?

Hallo Gentlemen, christmas closing in I think it’s going to be white, at least for England and Ireland.

Ok, I am wondering if this is at all possible to achieve:

You have a blank screen in front of you. On the right side I have a carousel working nicely. But, I would like to have a second smaller carousel on the left so that when a viewer scrolls through the images on the right some poetic text appears automatically on the left in that separate carousel. The viewer will not be able to click or do anything on the left carousel. The idea is that as each image passes through on the right text will appear on the left. If the text appeared with the image underneath this would not be at all creative for my purposes, since the left hand carousel will also be backed up by subtle graphics.

The left hand side does not have to be a carousel per se, any construction that will allow a fading in of the text or sliding effect.

I thought at first, in my naive logic, that I might be able to assign Two Targets to the action button in the actions palette, not so unfortunately.

thankyou.
Chris.

Do you want these two areas to update independently, or can you
imagine drawing a larger box around both of them, and using one
Carousel to update both? The Carousel Button Action cannot do what
you’re talking about, but you could get a similar (not the same)
effect by simply having a larger Carousel.

There’s another way to do this, involves a fair amount of hand-typed
JavaScript and use of the geekier-than-thou[1] Protaculous Action,
please do let me know if you want to go wading in those depths.

  1. Not meant in any way as a slight on your formidable skills.

My skills are about as formidable as my pet cat claiming her rights over a piece of Tuna against a jungle lion.

However Walter, using one carousel to update both I think, if iam sharing the same mental picture as you.

Though would you mind elaborating on the “update independently”. Not quite sure what you mean.

Well, I mean something like two carousels side by side, each doing the same move, rather than the whole page “wiping” left.

Exactly, yes. Two carousels side by side or a few feet apart (highly untechnical measurements).

I suppose it is a simple matter of each time you click on the arrow the two carousels move in synchronisation.

If you can publish an example page somewhere I can help you with this.
Just make the two Carousels on the page, and draw two buttons for your
controls, but don’t apply any actions to those buttons. We’ll see what
the next step is then.

Walter, I have created everything. unfortunately I can not publish anything because I do not have a host. My photography website is hosted by a private company that itself has a host. I did not create the website myself, just re-arranged it.

I have yet to even learn about how people put up websites and hosting, I know the fundementals but not the details, that will have to come later.

Anyway, I have done what you suggested.

So when you upload, how does that work? Do you send the files to someone else and they upload for you?

I upload the images myself and place them in galleries that I created. I could upload a jpeg screen capture of my webpage as I create it, but it would probably take about 10 minutes to show and then it would only be an image, nothing that could be experimented with. I also standardize the max size of the image that is applicable accross the whole website. So anything I upload would not be that large. Hopefully no one else would see it and think that I had gone loopy with my photography.

I’m not going to be able to help you with this if you can’t post the generated code somewhere you and I can both see it. Even if I write the necessary code for you, if all you’re uploading is the images, the effect won’t work.
