Please take a look at this web page: http://livinatlevel5.us/gallery.html

I would like to put some kind of action on each of the 11 thumbnails so that on click the slide show goes to that image and stops. We will then need a button to resume the slide show.

Assuming that this is all possible, please answer the first part and then I can ask a new question for the second part.

Thanks,
John

I found an extended version of the jQuery extension you're using that has a control feature:
http://www.openstudio.fr/Animated-InnerFade-with-JQuery.html?lang=en
The extension you're using now doesn't have a built-in method of pausing and resuming, so this may be your best choice.

Thanks for the link. I copied and pasted as much of the code as I could find, but of course all i get is the 2 large images and nothing else. If you have the time to download everything and get it working, could you post your code so I can see how it works?  In the meantime I'll do a search for Javascript slide show with pause.

Thanks,
John

I've gotten it to work quite well.  In order to use this extension, you'll have to extract the contents of the zip file on the page I linked to earlier onto your server in the same directory as the page it'll appear on.
If you don't want the next or previous buttons you'll have to rename the image files located in:
jquery.animated.innerfade\img
named previous.gif and next.gif to anything you want.
It should, then, work.
I added a class to your style sheet named controlBox that changes the position of the controls in the slideshow.
Let me know if you have any other questions or need me to clarify anything.
