A permanent image click gallery with up/down thumbnails

30th November 2009

Absolutely NO javascript, just HTML and CSS

For all of you who have asked for a vertical version here it is. This one has the thumbnails placed vertically. Clicking the down or up arrow will shift the thumbnails in the chosen direction and whereas the previous gallery wrapped around to the beginning of the thumbnails, this one stops when you get to the first and last thumbnail. The photgraphs and their associated text will stay in place no matter where else you click or scroll the page. You can even refresh the page and the same image will be reloaded (non IE browsers).

As with the previous gallery this does not work in Opera, not even the latest version, but it does work in IE5.5, IE6, IE7, IE8, Firefox, Safari(PC) and Google Chrome.

It would be nice if Opera could get this working in their next release especially as IE5.5 can manage it.

All the photographs in this gallery have either been purchased from dreamstime for use on CSS play or have been obtained from the stock.xchng. These are copyright the various photographers and should not be copied without their permission.

27th June 2010 - This now works in the latest version of Opera.
