Smooth Jquery Transitions

Hey Experts!!

I have this page here: http://rdsrc.us/vAOdbc 

The jquery transition is sloppy and it also is showing the first image for a second while the other one is loading.  I've tried a Jquery CSS image preloader.  However, I don't think it's working correctly.

How can I clean up the transitions as well as negate showing the 1st background image while another one is loading.

you may embed each image in each page and use jquery tabs, for example : http://www.designchemical.com/blog/index.php/jquery/simple-tabs-with-ajax-and-jquery/


$.ajax({
    "url":toLoad,
    success:function(html) {
       $("#slide-container").empty().append(html);
    }
});

Open in new window

Check section << 2. The jQuery Code >> you will see an ajax call. This is your version.

You put it inside $('#nav li a').click(function(){
the same way you did it with your load : $('#slide-container').load(toLoad)

I implemented your code leakim. Would you be able to check for me that it's working correctly and that I've implemented the code correctly as well.

Not really. load and ajax is the same function in background, an ajax call. Currently you use it twice.
OK, forgot the previous code and link. I think you know how to put two div at the same position in the document.
The first one is visible, the second hidden. We load the content in the second div and once the content is fully loaded, we fadeOut/FadeIn

<div class="slide-container current">first one</div>
<div class="slide-container">second one</div>

Open in new window


$('#nav li a').click(function(e){
        e.preventDefault(); 
        var toLoad = $(this).attr('href')+' #slide-container';
        window.location.hash = $(this).attr('href').substr(0,$(this).attr('href').length-5);
        $(".slide-container:not(:visible)").load(toLoad, function() {
             $(".slide-container.current").fadeOut("slow", function() { $(this).removeClass("current"); });
             $(".slide-container").fadeIn("slow", function() { $(this).addClass("current"); });
        });
    });

Open in new window

Yes and remove the previous one, the csspreloader code too
Don't forget to add a new div with the same class
Change the class name of the parent div

I removed the initial/default content to let you see clearly the two divs with the class slide-container
The second one is hidden, we load the content inside it and when the content (the page) is fully loaded, we fadeOut the "current" div and fadeIn the "hidden" one.

The hover works fine.  But when the user clicks, the menu li and a tags need to have the class "current" applied.

add this :
			$("a.current").removeClass("current");
			$(this).addClass("current");

Open in new window

after :
			$("#nav ul li").removeClass("current");
			$(this).parent().addClass("current");

Open in new window

$(".slide-container:first").load("home.html #slide-container");
