First of all
this is my first post.

i have been developing in php for sometime now am not an expert but am fairly ok.

i was surveying around for a framework that its easy to use and flexible.
i got to say i have found its CodeIgniter.

i have been learning javascript lately with JQuery, i learn based on project. so i had this idea to combine few technologies while learning.

Image slideshow using
MySQL, PHP(CodeIgniter), JavaScript(JQuery), and of course the rest of the family (xHTML,CSS,XML).

Lets see the features:
Images display on the page with out user interaction.
Images change according to the list in the Database.
Images information stored in DB.
If Image get displayed it report success.

Add new images categories
Long list a guess.

I hoped i could fined some help from CodeIgniter community while developing this.

Thank You

You might want to check out JQuery plugins. I see Cycle( for my slideshows.

Nice plugin i have tried to use Cycle Lite Plugin. its working like a charm.

i genrate the list of images from the Database then leave it to the plugin.

However i wanted more features.

My Table:

CREATE TABLE `playlist` (
`id` bigint(20) NOT NULL auto_increment,
`name` varchar(33) NOT NULL,
`location` varchar(60) NOT NULL,
`duration` varchar(10) NOT NULL,
`date_added` timestamp NOT NULL default CURRENT_TIMESTAMP,
`queue` varchar(2) NOT NULL,
`status` varchar(1) NOT NULL default '0',

Hi all;

sorry for reopening this threat again, i thought of just continuing with the issues related to this.

i have tried this plugging in with my small kiosk system, it seems to have a very strange behavior

when am using the slide show with flash video or any video, every time the image change the video will hang for a second or 2.

has anyone faced such a behavior.
