To use my Carousel follow these steps:
From download page you can get the
Carousel.swf: copy it on your site (in any folder).
If you don't have an existing html page you can use any of the templates provided in the download page as a starting point (skip step 2).
Please notice that for certain platforms (like WordPress, Joomla, etc.) templates/plugins/modules been developed by other people. Please take a look at the list.
If you are using a Blog/Forum/CMS platform please visit the Blog, Forum, and CMS page.
Carousel.swf to your page as you usually do for any flash movie. For more information see How to embed a Flash file.
A few parameter of the embedding object/script may be relevant for the Carousel, see Embedding Parameters.
At the end of this step the Carousel will simply show an error: it cannot load the image list. Don't worry, go ahead.
Create a file named
default.xml in the same folder of your html page and fill it with the image list. You may or may not specify a href and a target for each image.
Your file should look like this:
<slide_show> <photo>images/home.jpg</photo> <photo>../path/pic.png</photo> <photo href="http://www.flshow.net/" target="_top">flower.jpg</photo> <photo title="This is me in Rome">./photos/meInRome.jpg</photo> </slide_show>
See Photos and Links for more information.
If you want to use a filename diffrent from
default.xml (or to put it in a different path) you must specify the correct filename via
flashvars (see Embedding Parameters).
The xml file MUST BE VALID; modern browsers (like Firefox and IE) can be used to check xml files.
The Carousel can be highly customized changing options in the xml file. See Options.
