Hi all,

I am looking for some simple (one-page) html-based templates that would allow me to do a slide show similar to these sites:

[hdshowings.com...]

or like this one, although I prefer the above one:

[238eagleridge.com...]

Any thoughts on where I might be able to source some ready made templates or something that would allow me to generate similar templates and easily include the slideshows?

I mostly do development in wordpress and have kind of relied on WP for making sure that the site is responsive, and for taking care of the slide shots. However, for these sites, I want to keep them nice, easy and simple.

BTW: I did reach out to the person who developed the 238eagleridge.com site and he said he used Serif Web Plus to develop it, but it looks like that has been discontinued.

Thanks in advance.

Just use bootstrap. There may be a bootstrap template available but otherwise this a ten minute job with bootstrap (okay maybe 20 minutes).

Thank you for the reply, Nick.

Bootstrap MIGHT work for me.

I have to admit that since I am so used to using wordpress "plugins" I don't know where to find a javascript Slideshow similar to the ones in the example sites I linked to (and how to set it up) in an HTML site.

Do you (or anyone else) know of any?

Thanks again.

You can try the bootstrap carousel. Not exactly the same but it maybe what you need.

Hmmm... looks like the virtual tour in the first example is done in flash, right?
