Make a Text Slideshow with Javascript

Javascript is a web scripting language used to operate your HTML elements. With it, you could make a simple photo slideshow, as we introduced before. Today, we will tell you how to make a text slideshow with Javascript.

Firstly, add the Javascript code between <:head> and <:/head>. There are only two places you need to modify: the text in the quotation and the text slideshow timeout. As you could see, HTML tags are allowed to appear in the quotation parameter.

<SCRIPT type="text/javascript">

var quotations = new Array()

    quotations[0]= "<a href=''>Make slidewshows with text in minutes.</a>"

    quotations[1]= "<a href="/span>'>Add animated texts and hyperlink is available.</a>"

    quotations[2]= "<a href="/span>'>Add captions and descriptions to photos. </a>"

function display()







Secondly, put the div tag as below where you want to place the text slideshow, but between <body> and </body> tags. You could change the text style and background color to suit your needs.

<div id="quotation" style="background-color:yellow; width: 300px; height: 50px; padding: 15px 0 0 5px;">

<SCRIPT type="text/javascript">display()</SCRIPT>


All done. Save the changes and preview it with your web browser. Here is a text slideshow example. Check whether it's what you want.
