Image trail overlay onmouseover

I have a little problem with a script I got from templatemonsters.com
When you roll over a thumbnail a larger version of the image appears in a mouse trail.

I managed to get the script down to here:

The above does not work 100% right since the overlay snaps from the bottom of the page to the cursor but I can address that later.
Now when I delete everything and keep just the image the script does not seem to work:

What am I doing wrong? I keep the hidden layer and some other stuff that I don't know what they do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!

I think you dont have the right to copy that.

They are useing this script and fixed it up a little


You should do the same

Not the solution you were looking for? Getting a personalized solution is easy.

Ask the Experts


I know that they got the script from javascriptkit.com

I am trying to make it look like the one used in templatemonster.com

And the result won't be the same? A script that looks like the one used above?
Why not save some time and adapt that, than make one from scratch?

you have to ask the maker first


I got answers on similar issues many times.
If you don't have anything usefull to say just don't reply :S

I know that I should not take the script as is that's why I am asking for your help.....

You want to talk about it with me? OK!
Do you think we are a RentAcoder site here?
How much do you want to pay for our work?
What do you want to do for us, especially for me?

This is a web platform where you can ask ONE coding or technical question and get ONE answer to that one question.
What you do "ask" is: Who wants to do my job?

evoker you poor fool,

1. Zvonko is the top javascripter here and your not on the list
2. you can just ask the webmaster at templatemonsters.com for this code
3. if your just take it your a thief
4. or just make your own like the webmaster at templatemonsters did
 its very easy to use http://www.javascriptkit.com/script/script2/simpleimagetrail.shtml and fix it
just add some onmouseover preview src = bigpic
and adjust the rest a little

I just made a code for myself to display images that works fine but its mine unless I want to give it. (and I dont :P)

evoker,  I do not know what you are, but as long as you want to use this site you have to obey the EE Member Agreement rules.

And if you are really interested who I am, then you should know that I am Makedonian.
But now I have no time and interests to discuss what you are. I have to go to my Iwrit evening class.


I didn't assault anyone and dont care who Zvonko and using the word Makedonian pissed me even more when I am Greek....

Thanks anyway I got it working from the first link you gave me.

good that your useing that, so is that code working well for you?


Yeah it works well.
It was easy silly me.
sorry for all the trouble.

How can I close this question?
