Can’t wait to get your own image rotator? Go there!
Last year, when I published a post about displaying a random picture on a SharePoint page, I left some unfinished business. At the end of the post, I was suggesting some improvements, but I didn’t provide the related code.
So I have decided to build an image rotator generator: simply go to this page, choose your settings, and get your own script. You can then add it to a SharePoint page using a Content Editor Web Part, as usual.
One key feature of this image rotator is that it allows you to use pictures optimized for the Web, instead of the original pictures. I’ll provide more details on this in a dedicated post.
I am already thinking about future enhancements, for example:
– make it work for anonymous users, not just in authenticated environments
– add transition effects
– add a description to each picture
There is still a lot of room for improvement, so your feedback is welcome!
