Show And Stay

Recommended / related
Been working on Show and Stay for ages, it's just gone live today, SMART! It's a whole new look, courtesy of our army of designers and builders, but I've contributed most of the dynamic stuff, sometimes adapting things people here did before me and partly writing new stuff, js up front and php round the back. I'm sick of the sight of it now, but hurray, it's live at last!

About time for the next phase redesign...

RE: Show And Stay

Was that the version with the carousel of shows which spun round like ducks at a fairground shoot?

RE: Show And Stay

Hmmm.

Now that I'm a Flash / Flex developer - how did they do the spinning thing on the front page?

It's called a carousel

I think the Flash version was a free download... Originally we were going with a really cool javascript solution but there were problems in Safari I think...

Google for free flash carousel download or something...

Shouldn't be any issues like that!

There's always been a site at that address, this is just a revamp of it, can you really not see it?

Hmmm

Well, maybe my internets are wonky ! I always seem to have some problem or other.. Firefox sez

Server not found
Firefox can't find the server at www.show-and-stay.co.uk.

I need to get rid of some of those flickr slideshows...

Can't tell what the domain is from here because it's inside this building. Can you see holidayextras.co.uk?

Right, those spare flickr slideshows are gone now...
