Easy way to swap image out on page load

Posted on 2014-10-23

How can I swap an image on page load that will rotate 4 images all same size in same position.  The swap image behavior in dreamweaver cs4 only does this for 2 images.  Don't want complex coding.

Swap image is meant for rollover effects (image changes onmouseover or similar event).  When you say you want 4 images, what is the desired application?  Slideshow?

Of course, there are tons of jquery image rotator codes.

Here is one I had created some time back

On this plug in do I download the files and put them in my directory with the page I want to cycle the photos on?  Then just add their code and point to my image files.  I tried this and it's not working correctly.

If I already am using a jquery menu on this page can I still use this also?  I have tried downloading the files to my directory and pointing to those in the header, also pointing to his files.  Then put this in a div tag that is the grid and added my images and it just displays all at the same time under each other.  Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Check the console to locate error
Where to see your page?

It's working now if I use his exact location for the files in the header.  I guess that is ok unless he moved them.  Why if I downloaded both of those files and then pointed to them as the src would it not work.  The console only shows one error and I don't think it's relelvant.  I am not using //@ anywhere in this code.

Using //@ to indicate sourceMappingURL pragmas is deprecated. Use //# instead
