Page transitions (fade in/out) with JQuery

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had any good pointers for using JQuery to achieve page transitions (ie: Once page is loaded, page fades in, then on link click the page fades out and fades in the next page).

I have been using scriptaculous to achieve this with some success however I am finding that lots of componants are just flashing in order out so looking to change languages to something with a little bit more "punch" to it.

Any suggestions regardless of scripting language would be greatly appreciated. An example of my current scriptaculous page transition can be seen at www.richardmassey.com.au

FYI, EE has a section for jQuery: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/Jquery/#browseZones
Not to knock Scriptaculous, but I have found jQuery to be more compatible in general.

Here is how to hide, fade in, and fade out.
$(document.body).hide();
$(document.body).fadeIn();

$(document.body).fadeOut();

jQuery has slightly different syntax from Prototype.  But you should be able to pick it up fast.  You might trip over yourself using the wrong syntax a little at first.

I took the liberty of writing a demo for you.
<html>
<head><title></title>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.2.6/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function(){
        jQuery('a').click(function(){
        jQuery(document.body).fadeOut();
        setTimeout("nav('"+this.href+"')",1500);
        return false;
    });
});
 
function nav(href){
 location.href=href;
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<a href="test.html">test</a>
<a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>
<a href="http://jquery.com">jQuery</a>
</body>
</html>

That's fantastic, thank you so much. I've been able to pick your example apart and work out what does what and it has helped with playing with other functions as well.

Thank you heaps. I'm sure I will have more question on EE regarding JQuery but you have given me a great start.
