Welcome to my Comments Pages

Please note. I get a few hundred emails a week from visitors asking for help, or posing questions on how to modify my demos to suit their application and I read them all. Unfortunately I only have a limited amount of time to spend answering these questions.

So if I do not reply, please do not be offended, and if I do reply then you are one of the lucky ones.

How to close them by a click ON the image (kije with the slide show).
What do I have to modify in the XHTML or CSS file?

Finally, I did it, it works, but the 2X images (small zoom) appears behind the small ones.
However, a simple clic on the large image close it.
Can you help me ?

djedie, that's the problem. You cannot have the small zoom AND the large image ckick to close. That is why it works on the 'slide show' but not on the galleries.
I do not know of any way round this.

Thanks a lot for this great gallery css - it's always a pleasure to check the stuff on your site.

I use this gallery on my own page and noticed a strange effect in IE. If I don't include the lines
a, a:visited {
color: #e0e1d9;

a:hover {
which are (other colour) also in cssplay.css, IE stops opening the large image after a few clicks on the thumbnails. Only when you click on a thumbnail and move the mouse to the background, the large image appears.
I don't know if there is some interference with my own css file. If I copy your whole gallery page on my site and remove these entries from the css, the same thing happens. Any idea?

Keep on playing!

Lars, this is a necessary 'feature' of IE in that it NEEDS the default states of links to be defined in order to work correctly.
I found this out a few months ago (by accident) when working on a demonstration that used both hover and active.
There is no way round this but it is not normally a problem to define the defaults in this way.

Thank you for the very quick reply.

Do I need to define _all_ states? I don't describe the active state so far, and I don't find it in your css files.

Lars, it is always safer to set the default style of all states. Mine is set in the cssplay.css file

Ted Bullock:-
The html validator extension for firefox (tidy) complains about the empty <span class="clr"></span>.

Would not a better solution (and certainly more intuitive) be to have <br class="clr" />?

Just my $0.02
