Javascript or HTML code to Create a rotating cube, having different images on each side

Does anyone know of a js or html (definitely NOT php) script to create a rotating picture cube, with the option of having different images for each of the sides?

Thanks.

As far as I know, there is no good cross-browser solution to do this with just HTML and JavaScript. That's something that Flash is much better suited for, so I recommend you look into using that instead.

You're probably right, Kravimir. Do you know any that produces a SWF?

Sam, nice find. It's close but not exactly what I'm looking for. The frustrating thing is that I found THE PERFECT widget at http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/ashley-tisdale-fancy-cube, but it doesn't seem to want to work for me.

Others are impressed, but I load the script and nothing happens. An email to the creator has gone unanswered.

I think you might have to install it on your own page to view it.

No, I don't know of any others.

I did install it and other than the promo graphic about widgetbox, there was a large blank space probably equal to the dimensions the cube is. I'm attaching the code if anyone can make sense of what the issue might be.

Thanks again.
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://cdn.widgetserver.com/syndication/subscriber/InsertWidget.js"></script><script>if (WIDGETBOX) WIDGETBOX.renderWidget('f6bc2d56-ed61-486d-8827-f8aea536c2a3');</script><noscript>Get the <a href="http://www.widgetbox.com/widget/ashley-tisdale-fancy-cube">Ashley Tisdale Fancy Cube</a> widget and many other <a href="http://www.widgetbox.com/">great free widgets</a> at <a href="http://www.widgetbox.com">Widgetbox</a>!</noscript>

Hmm... I installed it on a test page and it doesn't work for me either.

What you think this means? Is the whole thing with this type of widget that the person placing the widget on their page, has no control over the output; and the output is determined by the specific code at the host server that was created by the person who did the widget?

If this is the case, then what alternative is there? Is there any way to determine what the code was and build a new widget from the old one that doesn't work?

Thanks again for your help.

Without the original .fla file I doubt it.  You really need to ask someone who knows more about Flash than I do.

For the record, I generally disapprove of how people use Flash, but this is the kind of thing that it can do well.

Fair enough. I didn't even realize that it used flash.

Since I would need to pursue this by getting it over to whatever group handles flash, do you any suggestions on administratively, how to do that? Or would it simply be easier to close this one out and open a new one?

Thanks again for your help; I really appreciate it.

You're welcome.

Near the bottom right corner of the original question there is a link called "request attention" for this kind of thing.
