scrollable page navigation

The following is a link to a page containing a jquery scroller http://gromit.utopia.co.nz/~thebette/play/slider.html.
The code was taken from this website http://musca.se/full-window-width-jquery-tools-content-slider-demo/.

I am trying to modify the script to allow me to change the default first screen. At the moment the page opens on slide 1. What I need to be able to open the page on an alternate slide (so I can navigate direct to a particular item from an alternate page).
Assistance appreciated.
Cheers,

you can try the code below

$(function() {
         var defaultPageNumber =1
         var ctlPager = $("#navigation li").removeClass("active");
         $.each(ctlPager,function(i,j) {
             if((i+1) == defaultPageNumber )
            {  
                  $(this).addClass("active").click(); return false;
             }
        });
});

Just change the value of defaultPageNumber  to set the default page you want;

Hope this will solve your issue.

I have implemented your code. A link to your slider test page can be found here: http://gromit.utopia.co.nz/~thebette/play/linkTo.html
As you will see, no matter which link I click on the slider page opens, then scrolls to the last item. Can you have a look and see if there is anything wrong with the way I have implemented you code?

Reply to Lalit-Chandra
You code works perfectly (here is the working page http://gromit.utopia.co.nz/~thebette/play/solution2.html).  If I wanted to modify your code so that:
1. The default page is set by the number after the # in the url. IE clicking to slider.html#2 from another page takes me directly to that item as opposed to slider.html#2 opening then scrolling.

To summarize. if I am on the slider page then the navigation should move the slider. If I click a link to the slider page (IE slider.html#2)  then the item clicked on should show by default as opposed to the page opening then the slider sliding to the item.
Thanks for your input.

Lalit-Chandra - there is nothing new in the post by Neil.

the code I posted will do exactly what has been asked.
If you change

http://gromit.utopia.co.nz/~thebette/play/slider.html

from

// Scrollable and navigator plugin settings.
$("#slider").scrollable({ easing: 'easeOutQuad', speed: 900, circular: true }).navigator({ navi: '#navigation' });

Open in new window


to

// Scrollable and navigator plugin settings.
$("#slider").scrollable({ easing: 'easeOutQuad', speed: 900, circular: true }).navigator({ navi: '#navigation' });

var page = parseInt(location.hash.substring(1),10); 
if (isNaN(page)) page=1;
$("#navigation li:nth-child(page)").trigger("click");

Open in new window


it should works as expected with a link to

http://gromit.utopia.co.nz/~thebette/play/slider.html#1
http://gromit.utopia.co.nz/~thebette/play/slider.html#2
http://gromit.utopia.co.nz/~thebette/play/slider.html#3

going to slide 1, 2 and 3

Thank you to both mplungjan and Lalit-Chandra for your submissions. The final solution came from combining both suggestions. I realize that that my question was quite complex so I am sure that I will soon be posting soon with a spin of question.
Thanks again.
Cheers,
N

Final solution:
 var page = parseInt(location.hash.substring(1),10);  
   var ctlPager = $("#navigation li");
         $.each(ctlPager,function(i,j) {
             if((i+1) == page )
            {  
                  $(this).addClass("active").click(); return false;
             }
        });
