This section details a step-by-step process of how to install the JW Image Rotator onto your page. The download ZIP contains all you need to get started.
Step 1: Transfer the imagerotator.swf and imagerotator.xml file from the ZIP to your website. (Make sure that you’ve also uploaded all photos you want to show onto your site.)
Step 2: Edit the imagerotator.xml file so that it contains the titles, links and image URLs of your images. This can be done by using a simple text editor. If you want to add more photos, just paste additional track blocks in the .xml file.
Step 3: Embed the Image Rotator in your HTML page with the following lines of code. (Note: If you place the files in different directories, be sure to set the references in this embed code accordingly.)
< embed src="imagerotator.swf" width="470" height="160" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" flashvars="file=imagerotator.xml&transition=blocks" / >
Notice the flashvars parameter can contain a list of variables for configuring the rotator. To quickly set up flashvars, read through the following Wiki page with all flashvars. Select the variables you want to use and insert their names/values onto your page. It’s that simple.
