Topic: insert pictures into a running slide show

Is there a way to insert pictures into a running slide show?

I have found that, with Javascript, I can call simpleview.load() to re-load a modified gallery but it would be really nice to be able to simply insert another image into the queue.

To insert an image into a gallery, you would need to upload the image, its thumbnail and add a corresponding entry into the gallery's XML file.

Re: insert pictures into a running slide show

Hi Steven,

Thanks for the reply.  That is, in fact what I am doing now.  I was wondering if there was a way of using javascript to "insert" another image into the queue without having to reload an entirely fresh gallery.xml.

If not, I think that my workaround might be something along the lines of:
1. pausing the slide show
2. reloading the updated gallery.xml
3. re-starting the slide show
4. using javascript to set the "next slide"

Does this sound about right?

Thanks in advance for your help.
