I am trying to setup a random image fader that has links.  I had the code for random image fader and was trying to add links.  I have the links and everything rendering properly, but when I try to click on one of the images, the link where I am ending up does not match the image I clicked.

Here is the full code.  
<html>
<head>

<style>
.showhand
{
    cursor:pointer;
}
</style>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var nindex = 0;

        if (!a_items) return alert("items structure is missing");
        if (typeof (a_items) != 'object') return alert("format of the items structure is incorrect");
        if (a_items[a_items.length - 1] == null) return alert("last element of the items structure is undefined");

        if (!a_lnks) return alert("links structure is missing");
        if (typeof (a_lnks) != 'object') return alert("format of the items structure is incorrect");
        if (a_lnks[a_lnks.length - 1] == null) return alert("last element of the links structure is undefined");
        
        if (!a_tpl) a_tpl = [];
        for (var i = 0; i < A_TSLIDEDEFS.length; i += 2)

Line 68, you've :
window.location.href =\'' + this.a_lnks[ 0 ]
instead :
window.location.href =\'' + this.a_lnks[ i ]

and replace :
for (var i = 1; i < this.a_items.length; i++) {
by :
for (var i = 0; i < this.a_items.length; i++) {

@insoftservice, I was trying to stay away from using jquery for this!

@leakim971, Your solution is rendering something similar to what was being rendered with the code I provided.  Everything renders the way you would expect it to, but when clicking on the images, the links are not corresponding to the image that is clicked.

I tried the test page but the links do not match with the images being clicked.  Everything renders properly, but when you look at what image is being clicked, they are not matching with the associated links.

Thanks
