I don't get it how this extension works !!!!
free2saute what do you mean by "When i preview it puts everything out of place" did you read the pdf that explained how to use....If you are using WB5 you need to manually change the doctype see pdf and original posting....and if you use WB6 you need to change the doctype in page properties to XHTML 1.0 Transitional. This was also mentioned in original posting by me if I can help I will.

Yes you can use larger images for this...with this extension it works by taking a large image Example: (600x300) and displays it at (150x75) and with the mouseover shows the original size (600x300) If you are asking is it possible to set the output size by itself no it is not possible. Please note that this is how the original script works by default as made by the original author I only take this and make into extension adding to it only to make it possible to change color, text etc....

Sorry :oops: this will be amended but you will not be able to increase the mouseover size only the thumb size as this is how the ccs works...it is the original size of image that determins what it will be displayed at.

Thanks for your efforts but the size of the orignal image doesn't seem to make any difference to the size of the rollover image - And you can't add an url link to an image either?
