The SlideNum snippet is a complimentary snippet for use with SeydoggySlideshow 3 (or SS3) enabled themes. The sdSlideNum snippet is a method for defining how many slides to show and in which order, should you find the built-in slide sequences do not suit your needs.
Download and install the SlideNum snippet.
Open the Page Inspector (RapidWeaver > View > Show Page Inspector).
Be sure that the setting found in Page Inspector > Styles > Slide show type > Off / Manual (snippet) is selected.
The snippet will look like this:
sdSS.slideNum = [3,5,1,9,15];
Each number corresponds to a header image (i.e. "3" is "Background image 3" from the Page Inspector > Styles > Background (header/slide show)[EC 1] menu). The order of the numbers will coincide with the order of your slides.
sdSlideNum is actually a simple comma separated list. Adding or removing slides in the sequence is just a matter of adding or removing numbers from the list. Just make sure that each number is separated from the next number by a comma, making sure that the last number in the list is NOT followed by a comma.
Here are just a few examples:
A sequence that starts at header image 1 and goes through to header image 8:
sdSS.slideNum = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8];
A sequence of header images from 20 to 16 in reverse order:
sdSS.slideNum = [20,19,18,17,16];
A sequence of 7 random header image starting at 9 and ending 10:
sdSS.slideNum = [9,6,11,2,20,17,10];
