    Hi Rolf,

    How can I offer my users the ability to pause (and then restart playing) the slideshow please?

    The solution you wrote about here would be fine, but does this apply to easy fancybox pro? If so, which file and which line to insert that code?

    Thanks
    Stew

    Sorry Rolf, ignore this question – it is already working fine (on mouseover = pause).

    I thought it wasn’t working because the mouse was over the lightbox, but the slideshow was still running. I realise now the mouse not only has to be over, but it also has to move in order for the pause be invoked.

    Cheers,
    Stew

    Hi Stewart, you are right the mouse has to move before jQuery will detect its location. I’m afraid there is nothing I can do about that…

    Actually I just noticed it requires the mouse pointer to come from outside the picture, cross over the border, and arrive over the picture element. In other words, a ‘mouseover’ event.

    Personally I think users would figure it out quicker, if the slideshow paused upon any movement of the mouse while it was over the picture. In other words a ‘mousemove’ event. (Related SO question)

    Hi Stewart, a good idea. Are you willing to test a new version with this adaptation for me?

    Yep sure no worries. I have a separate dev environment for such things.
