Display a particular slide that is specified in the current URL


How to select a particular slide with an outside call like
< a href="slider.html?Page=5">
I tried using <body onload='mydisplay();'>
function mydisplay(){
    var str =;
    var n =str.indexOf('=')+1;
    var indx=str.substring(n);
    imageSlider.displaySlide(indx, true, true);
This often produce errors and messes up the sequence

Thank you for your time - alberto

You are almost there. It will work if the indx is an integer instead of string. You also need to make sure the indx is less than the total number of the slides as it is zero-based:

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> ...... <script src="themes/66/js-image-slider.js" type="text/javascript"></script> <script> function mydisplay() { var str =; var n = str.indexOf('=') + 1; var indx = str.substring(n); try { if (indx) indx = parseInt(indx); imageSlider.displaySlide(indx, true, true); } catch (e) { } } </script> </head> <body> ... ... <!--put the following script at the end of the body, just before </body>--> <script>mydisplay();</script> </body> </html>
