View Full Version : Using image for "Next" link
06-04-2005, 04:35 PM
Right now my blog is using an image for the "next" link. What I'm wanting is to either offer a "grayed out" version of the button when you are viewing the current photo, or have it wrap around to the oldest photo.
Right now, when visitors click on the button while viewing the current photo, it does nothing. I know you can accomplish something similar with a text link using <IMAGE_NEXT_LINK> - but this is with a graphic.
Anyone have a solution to this? It would be much appreciated! ;)

do you mean you want the images to be slightly transparent when the cursor isn't actively hovering over them? this can be done with css very easily but if you want to be compatible in IE then you'll need to do with some invalid css (although it'll work just fine!)
otherwise you can imagerollovers... ie, 2 images for each of those links.

No, the only image I'm talking about is the one that I use for the "next" button in my navigation. I want to have an alternate "grayed out" image for it when someone is viewing the current photo, because it doesn't work on the current photo.
Like, with the <IMAGE_NEXT_LINK> tag, it will simply remove the "next" link on this page. But I'm using a graphic, so this doesn't work. Does that make more sense?

yeah. i understand now. i don't have access to the script right now as i'm not at home but i'll get round to having a shot at it for you as soon as i'm back home.

i attempted this on a earlier version and was did not complete it...I will have to dig up the files. I dont think a solution is posted in the forum, if so it is in the hacks section
*sigh* time for a cold beer, shot a concert, a wedding and off a festival now....sheesh what a day

a simple solution should be to use the normal <IMAGE_NEXT_LINK> and use the language file to replace the language for next image with the html for your next image button.
