I am trying to make a forum signature.
I want to make a portion of the image scroll.
In the scrolling portion will be multiple pictures containing links.

If you still can't visualize it, I've made this:

IPB Image

There's a bunch of things I'm not understanding how to do, how to make only a portion of the image scroll. Would you make the still image the background and somehow embed the scrolling image in the middle?
How can you make the images have links? An image map wouldn't work because the scrolling pictures are essentially an a .gif, right?

I'm not a coder of any kind so please keep that in mind when you're trying to explain things, and thank you in advance!



Also, for shits and giggles, if the code for this ended up being super long is there a way I could restrict the amount of characters? The forum's signature html space has a character limit.

Yeah, you could make the big image a background for a DIV in which you place a smaller DIV that holds the smaller images. Position the smaller DIV where you want it. The big DIV would be the size of the background image. You limit the width if the smaller DIV and make it scrollable with CSS (overflow: scroll or overflow: auto). To make it possible to position the small DIV absolute relative the big DIV, you need to make the big one position: relative. You need to add a little extra height to the small DIV to make room for the scrollbar. You probably need to read up a little about both HTML and CSS too. wink.gif

Something like this.

HTML
<div style="height: 400px; width: 600px; position: relative; background: url(http://img1.jurko.net/wall/paper/wallpaper_17828.jpg">
<div style="position: absolute; bottom: 40px; left: 40px; width: 200px; height: 105px; white-space: nowrap; overflow-x: scroll; overflow-y: hidden">
<img src="http://htmlhelp.com/icon/reference.gif" width="90" height="90" alt="blah blah">
<img src="http://htmlhelp.com/icon/reference.gif" width="90" height="90" alt="blah blah">
<img src="http://htmlhelp.com/icon/reference.gif" width="90" height="90" alt="blah blah">
<img src="http://htmlhelp.com/icon/reference.gif" width="90" height="90" alt="blah blah">
<img src="http://htmlhelp.com/icon/reference.gif" width="90" height="90" alt="blah blah">
<img src="http://htmlhelp.com/icon/reference.gif" width="90" height="90" alt="blah blah">
</div>
</div>



But does the forum where you plan to use this allow HTML and CSS in sigs? That would be unusual.

I don't need a scroll bar, I want it to scroll by itself, I guess that would make it a .gif?
You're right, I can't use HTML on the forum, only BBcode, so do I have to write this on a webpage and figure out a way to reference it in the BBCode?

So now you tell me.

No, you wont be able to reference a web page. I think your only option is to make the whole thing an animated GIF.

For a normal web page, you could consider using a slider. There are many different versions of those out there. So, try searching for one that suits your needs.
