Hi all

Does anyone know where I can get the html (or tutorial) on creating flipping
pages? I am trying to create an online samples book, I have the jpgs
uploaded and displayed, but would love to make it look more like a
'brochure' with pages automatically flipping over when you view them.
Any help appreciated.
Thanks
C

I've tried flipping everywhere! Its only a little thing I will do once, so
don't want to spend $100+ on e-book software at present.

Automatic is a big issue, viewers may not like the automatic speed you
pick.

Most solutions use JavaScript which client might have disabled or ASP /
PHP.

Is it for BY PWP or another hosting site? Could check with newsgroups
for your service provider to see if others have done the samething and
what worked.

A very basic solution (has problems if you insert / delete pictures you
need to redit the links each time) would be along the lines of (skipping
a lot of HTML here and it's not been tested as shown)


intro.html -
<img src="picture1.jpg>
<br>
<a href="page2.html">Next</a> / <a href="pageX.html">Last</a>

page2.html -
<img src="picture2.jpg>
<br>
<a href="intro.html">Start</a> / <a href="page3.html">Next</a> /
<a href="intro.html">Previous</a> / <a href="pageX.html">Last</a>

page3.html -
<img src="picture3.jpg>
<br>
<a href="intro.html">Start</a> / <a href="page4.html">Next</a> /
<a href="page2.html">Previous</a> / <a href="pageX.html">Last</a>

page4.html -
<img src="picture4.jpg>
<br>
<a href="intro.html">Start</a> / <a href="page5.html">Next</a> /
<a href="page3.html">Previous</a> / <a href="pageX.html">Last</a>

A more advanced solution is put picture filenames and notes/descriptions
into a database file, you then create a script to read the entries from
the database.

JacknJill -> check the demo at pressmo site, you can try it, check if everything is ok for you and make a decision. My friend used it some time ago when he had a freelance job for "moving" the old papers of some magazine to online archive and I think they've been selling them later on.

Landenn - thanks, that's what we did with pressmo, we've checked demo, tried it for free and now we're using it. Pros - fast, easy and the output looks good. Oh and the flip page effect looks good too. So we ended with it
