That's IT!

Make as many of those slide-class <div> sets as you need.

That's it. Sort of...


The User Interface (UI)

There's much more than just "Next" and "Back".

Tapping the spacebar or the down arrow or the right arrow or the mouse key all trigger the change from one slide to the next. That interaction is controlled by the JavaScript written by Eric A. Meyer.

You will not need to fiddle with the JavaScript at all.

Oh, and if you want to use a mouse or jump around to any individual slide,
move the mouse pointer to the bottom-right corner of the presentation screen. arrow

[ T for outline view ]

[ C for control visibility ]

[ Home, End, #+Enter to Jump to that slide ]
