Hello,
I have 5 banners with links to within my site that I want to rotate on my home page. I would also like to have these banners transition with a fade if possible.

I've been able to locate code that takes care of the rotation piece but it only works in IE (see below).

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi wattanabi2,
Ok, i've amended the code for rotation that work for other browser like firefox. If you're looking for fade effect, that may only work in i.e version. Check this article:
http://brainerror.net/scripts/javascript/blendtrans/
....//existing code 

if (document.all){                      // it is IE

                document.all.l3.innerHTML=bannerArray[myCount];

        }

 

        else if (document.layers){      // it is NN

 

        document.layers.l1.document.layers.l2.document.open();

        document.layers.l1.document.layers.l2.document.write(bannerArray[myCount]);

        document.layers.l1.document.layers.l2.document.close();

        }

	else if (document.getElementById){

         //add this line... 

         document.getElementById("l3").innerHTML=bannerArray[myCount];

        }

Thanks x_com. While I'm still missing the fade piece, this gets me off to a good start. I'll take a look at the link and will try to work in the fade piece from there.
