I hope I don't get sued. I found some images of the Squiddies from The
Matrix and used them to show why I call this the Sqiddies Script.

if you visit this site and rely on this page for updates then you probably
leave without seeing all the new good stuff. The site has been updated
but this news section tends to get overlooked. You should always check
out the ScriptClips section and the
In Development section for updates.
So what's new?
Well, in the SlideShows section there
are 2 new slideshows.
Simple Slide Show that allows
multiple versions of the same
script to be included on the same page. The script looks a lot better
in IE as it uses the transition filters to provide multimedia transitions
The Clickable Slideshow
is an extension of the Simple Slide Show and allows each picture to have
a link associated so you can navigate to a new page or open a larger version
of the picture.
In the ScriptClips section there
Text Trans Rollovers which
again use the Microsoft Transition filters to create dynamic rollovers.
Stay In View - which is an
extension to the floating DIV
script so that the DIV only floats when it is about to be scrolled off
In the In Development section there
is work on progress on a Popup
Picture Viewer that uses a layer to center a picture in the browser
even when the window is resized. There has also been a little extra work
done on the Left Slide Menu
with extra demos.
|[-] Site News - (January 14 2003)
rollover section has been added - TransRollovers.
There will be tutorials to follow (basically the same as all the other
There will be at least one transition slideshow uploaded by the end of
the month. This will be a simple automatic/no-caption//all-images-same-size
slideshow that uses the Microsoft Transition Filters for special effects
in IE (see news item below).
Also, take a look at the "Valentines" links to your right.
It's hard to believe that a year has passed! I am glad I saved the Valentines
demos. Check them out for ideas on how to liven up you web page for Valentines
Day (Feb. 14).

Now I know about the Microsoft Transition filters so I have been working
on a new slideshow. This new script is (loosely) based on the slideshows
at the fantastic script resource of DynamicDrive.com
Slideshow + Blending
Image Slideshow) that use filter transitions but as this new script
is an OO script you can have multiple copies of the script on the same
page. Check out the early demo's....
Download and install instructions will be added soon... keep checking

2 new scripts In Development. The
first is Moving Rollovers
which is based on Zooming Rollovers
but moves the images instead of resizing them. I finally started reading
up on Microsoft Transition Filters and realized they weren't that difficult
after all. I came up with a quick ScriptClip
called Multimedia Rollovers
that is compatible with IE4+ (and degrades gracefully in older browsers)
but then found I could take complete control over the state of the newer
DXImageTransform filters (using the properties "Percent" and
"Enable") which allowed me to use the State Transition Model
of Animated - Fading
- Zooming rollovers to create
TransRollovers. In browsers
other than IE5.5+ they degrade to simple image swaps but in browsers that
support the filters (IE5.5+ on Windows) you get a nice animated effect.
Check them out....demo1,

Crashed !!! : I was hoping to update this site a lot sooner with the
new ScriptClips section. Unfortunately
my development computer crashed and it has taken ages to get everything
pieced back together. Anyway SCRIPTCLIPS
is online but only the Halloween
Ghosts have install instructions. I am hoping to add instructions
to the other pages gradually as I get time.
|[-] Site News - (October 01 2002)
Update!!! : Ok, it is October and the site has finally been updated
(a little). The LinkFader script is finally online in the Navigation
Aids section. Also check out the Halloween demos in the right sidebar.
There is more to come this month as there is a new Halloween script that
now works in opera and will be in a new section called "Script Clips"
that will feature simple cut'n'paste scripts. The new section will contains
a completed version of Fireworks3
that was In Development The new section
will be used to publish finished scripts that don't have the usual demo/download/help
pages but should be simple enought to just cut'n'paste into your existing
HTML docs. Also the Fading Rollovers
script has been modified and now almost works with NS7 (but there are
still bugs in NS7 that prevent it from fully working)

Rollovers script has been updated to include support for IE on a Mac
(degrades to an image swap like Opera and NS4. NOTE: apparently NS7.0
and the latest release of Mozilla have bugs with opacity which renders
this script inoperable in those browsers).
section has been updated to include a fixed version of JSFX_Layer (Vers
3.6) that had a bug in NS4 for finding multiple layers.
Tickers and Tool

requested feature has been implemented for all the rollovers on this site.
You can now make the clicked image stay on or even replace it with a third

(DS Button Scroll) that has retained its link to a site that actually
SELLS the scripts that they posted!!!! Now I am not annoyed that the site
sells scripts but I am annoyed that they removed my link (to a FREE SITE)
but they retained the link to the script from the PAY SITE!!! Where is
the justice in this world?
|[-] Site News - (Apr 27 2002)
zoom rollovers have finally been completed and uploaded. There is a help
file but a tutorial is also on the way.
There are 2 new tutorials for creating fading rollovers. See the Fading
Rollovers in the scripts section.
they have conveniently removed the link I had to more zooming rollover
examples on this site. Surely they must see the reason for submitting
scripts to them is a way of directing traffic to the authors site. I have
3 more scripts pending publication and if they remove the links from those
then scripts from this site will no longer be submitted to them.
|[-] Site News - (Apr 10 2002)
code and examples for the news scroller have been uploaded. The help for
one of the scripts is online but is not complete. The help for the div

The code for the Div Scroller and the Vertical News Scroller have been

it may look as if the site has not been updated for a while there have
been a few additions, it is just the news that hasn't been updated. For
example Check out the New
Interface Demo using images from dangeruss-industries.com.
Also check out the Count
Display demos in the experiments side bar. Also a new
demo of the News
Scroller was added. Currently working on the DIV scroller. It uses
90% of the News Scroller code so they really need to be combined into
a single script with different options.

Have added a new section,

who had used the
script to create a very eye-catching
Page. This got me thinking.. (Dangerous!!!). It took me about
20 minutes to come up with the demo's for Valentines Day using scripts
from this site. It then took about 3 days to get the pages in reasonable
state to upload (I really need to start on PHP to make the site
easier to maintain). Anyway, check them out using the links at the

|[-] Who owns the 3 column format ? - (Jan 20 2002)
After changing most of the important pages to the 3 column format
I was worried I might be accused of "ripping" someone else's site.
Well, doing some surfing of the net I found that most sites use
a 3 column format in one way or another, so is it ripping or just
a good layout format? I hope nobody complains because I really need
to concentrate on content rather than layout.
|[-] Why the change ? - (Jan 16 2002)
visitors may be wondering why the layout of the site has changed.
The first is, I turned on stats and found that one third of visitors
never got past the front page. This was probably due to the cheesy
The second is, I found PHPNuke.org.
I found the 3 column layout very clean. I was considering using
PHPNuke to manage this site but it is a lot of PHP code and I need
only a few of the features. I have decided to learn PHP in order
to manage this site better and create only the features I need.
At the moment this is just a Dreamweaver Template and only the front
page will be in this format until I have figured out how the rest
of the site will fit into the template. At this time the links will
work but they link to the old site format.
on webstats to see how this site was being used. The outcome was
very interesting. First step was to re-design the layout. Second
step was to illiminate bandwith stealing (put a special surprise
in JSFX_Layer.js) Third step is to try and figure out why people
"steal" these scripts. The scripts are free but you must
keep the ONE LINE copyright comment intact. Why do people remove
some new interfaces to the Navigation
a new section called In Development.
This will showcase scripts that are either in development or even
finished and just need the help and download files creating.
