Hello there,
I'm trying to add a slideshow to my site that I got online. I got it to make it appear on the place that I want it using this code:

mysite/code/HomePage:

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

   function Content() {
    return str_replace('$slideshow', $this->slideshow(), $this->Content);
   }

   function slideshow() {
    return include('slideshow.php');
   }

}

so by that I'm able to show it (include it) on the part that I want. But when it comes on the site, it appears all the way to the top, and it only appear a number 1 where it suppose to be the slideshow. You can look at it here:

http://sitesimpleonline.com

I try to change the styles of the div, add a new div and put it inside, try everything with CSS but I think that it's not the problem =(

Any help, comments, manuals, etc will be REALLY appreciated!

THANK YOU very much!!!

What you could do is wrap the contents of slideshow.php in a function, which you can call. Instead of using echo/print/printf in that function, you'll want to return all output. Depending on how you do this, you may need to append the output to a variable and then return the variable, or, if there's only one output call, change it to return;

Then change the slideshow() method to something like:

function slideshow() {
include_once('slideshow.php');
return slideshowFunc();
}

Thanx simon but didn't make it, the slideshow has to many prints, echos, returns and to many files taht are being include = (

So I'm trying to use a simple <iframe>, but for some reason SS doesn't like iframes and makes a mess of the page this is what I'm using:

<?php
/**
* Defines the HomePage page type
*/

class HomePage extends Page {

}

class HomePage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

   function Content() {
    return str_replace('$slideshow', $this->slideshow(), $this->Content);
   }

   function slideshow() {
       $show = '<iframe src="http://sitesimpleonline.com/demoslideshow.php">';
      return $show;
   }
}
?>

any suggestion??? =P

Thnx again!

The iframe needs to be closed, so replace

<iframe src="http://sitesimpleonline.com/demoslideshow.php">

with

<iframe src="http://sitesimpleonline.com/demoslideshow.php" />

You may also want to specify the width and height of the iframe.

Thank you very much simon!
for some reason this didn't worked:

<iframe src="http://sitesimpleonline.com/demoslideshow.php" />

but like this it did (even though it's not correct...)

<iframe src="http://sitesimpleonline.com/demoslideshow.php"></iframe>

but "the end justifies the means" lol

Thanx again!
