Start the jQuery Slideshow from a particular slide index

I want to use jquery slider in home page and jquery slideshow in gallery page. Both has same images. Currently in Jquery slideshow, when you click on the thumbnails on the side, selected slider image shows up.

I want to do the same thing with the jquery slider on the home page. When user clicks a particular thumbnail on jquery slider, it should take to the gallery page and display a larger slider image with respective description on the bottom on jquery slideshow.

Please let me know if this feature is already available within the current functionality. Or does it have to be separately programmed.

You can force the jQuery slideshow to start from a particular slide index by calling:

For example, you can add the following script into your page:
<script> //suppose you get the slide index number from URL parameter, say slide=2, then you can call: //how to get url parameter? //read: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/979975/how-to-get-the-value-from-url-parameter mcThumbnailSlider.display(2); </script>

Note: To use the script above, the thumbnail-slider.js should be at least the version v2013.3.18.

Another option. In the new page, read the target slide index number from the URL, then revise the startSlideIndex (e.g. thumbnailSliderOptions.startSlideIndex = 2; ) before calling the: var mcThumbnailSlider = new ThumbnailSlider(thumbnailSliderOptions);
