Hardcode image URL into template?
Hi,

I'm currently redeveloping a vehicle database and have small problem with images not caching for a javascript rollover. Here's the site:

http://www.wcsauto.com/...Y;sb=Datereg;so=DESC

(Click on a vehicle to view the images)

The basic idea is to use javascript mouse rollovers to load/display the additional larger images without having to load a different DBMSQL URL. When a user hovers over the thumbnail images arranged across the bottom I want them to see the larger picture.

The problem with the roll-over is that I can't pre-load / cache the images into the browser with the existing IMG SRC=URL; every time you hover over a thumbnail it makes a fresh call to the DB and reloads the image (with the obvious time lag).

Is there a way to directly link to the image source so that I can put the actual real filenames into the HTML and preload them?

The images are stored in /img/dbm/salvage/0 .. 1 .. 2 .. 3 .. etc

Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated Smile

All the best
Shaun
