Slideshow Test

We've just added a new feature. Every post with at least 5 pictures will be automatically turned into a slideshow. You'll notice these two buttons at the top of some posts. Go ahead, click "Next" (or simply on the picture below... I find it easier to click on a picture - you can't miss :) ) to read more.
Edit: You can now use keyboard arrow keys too.

Each picture in the slideshow should load blazing fast. We've put extra effort into making the slideshow run as smooth as possible.

Each picture now has its own unique URL. You can link to any slide in the slideshow by copying the URL address. The link will jump directly to the slide you want.

If you'd rather scroll through all the pictures, you can turn off the slideshow by clicking "Expand".

thats all folks

    The expand all feature should have a negative as well.
    +expand all
    +retract all

    Is it possible to prevent the "Next slide" button from reloading the page so that the back button will go back to the home page rather than the previous slide?

    Looking into this issue.

    Edit: Back button should be fixed now.

    Thanks Paul, tis a great feature! :D

    Something I just noticed is that the +expand all button doesn't work quite like it's supposed to. After clicking it, the page will refresh and the post will be turned back to the slide show.

    Fixed :)

    we've noticed this on several posts, and while it is fun we actually find it kind of annoying. Each time we hit back we go back one slide rather then to the page beforehand... Athough it does make gigantic posts smaller which we like ^^

    We'll check if there's a way to fix this.

    Edit: How about now?

    sweet idea. This makes it so much faster to view a post with 100 pictures.

    oh and just a small idea, could you make it so that while on the page, pushing the left and right keys will make the slide move forwards and backewards?

    Good idea :)
    - Paul December 17, 2010, 12:18 pm
    Done and ready to use :)
    - Darius December 17, 2010, 12:53 pm
    sweet, that was pretty fast.
    Hooray I was helpful!

    Ok, two suggestions (one of them i have already posted but i dont know if you read it yet).

    1. Can you make sure that they "pre-load" gifs, as in, make sure they download fully before they start playing
    2. Youtube Videos dont work at all. I found that if there is a youtube video in a slideshow, you see an empty slide, and if you have a post with lots of videos, they get converted to a slideshow of videos but the videos dont display.

    it was an excellent idea, i noticed this last night.
    this should really help gif posts!

    just one bug i noticed last night...

    if someone puts a video in the middle of some pictures, the video doesnt display unless you expand, and the pictures after the video dont display or you just see a list of image files instead :S

    This definitely helps out a lot. Especially on posts that have tons of motivational's and you don't feel like scrolling down the page to look at them. Makes things much easier +3.

    Paul, could you make a "forgot password" thing? I know you can just make another account but my friend forgot her password for Sharenator and she already deleted all of her e-mail. This would really be appreciated.
    Please and thank you.

    Can she email me with her username? I will reset the password for her. My email is
    - Paul January 17, 2011, 12:47 pm
    I can tell you her username, but I'll tell her to e-mail you.
    Her username's XxBloodyFreakXx.
    - XxDaminalsxX January 18, 2011, 3:37 am
    I've emailed her with the new password.
    - Paul January 18, 2011, 3:48 am
    Okay, I'll let her know. Thanks a lot :D
