I need to do some work in html,css,js and I need some guidance from you guys/gals.
I have a task of creating a background slideshow, and I’m a little confused how to approach all of this, so I have a few questions.
So lets start!
It will be a background slideshow ,so the images are gonna be big. It will need a title and description for every image.
I’ve seen slideshows done before using “image” tags, and using “alt” and “longdesc” for storing information, but I’m guessing that’s not semantically correct?
Should I use JSON for storing information?
Should I code all images directly in html , or should I just code one image(first) and all other to be created from the JSON information via jQuery?
It “feels” a little bit strange to code 10 background images at once, so the user has to wait for all of them to be loaded.
Also, there is a slight chance that I will have to make a plugin for WordPress platform, so the client could choose the images, and titles and descriptions.
Should I use JSON for that as well?
Any help is greatly appreciated
