If you mean binding a page to a particular album and starting a slideshow automatically, the answer is yes. This demo shows it in action and describes how to accomplish it.

Sorry – to keep our hosting costs down we only have the one demo site up. The one you are referring to no longer exists, but it is pretty easy to explain. Basically, you use the Gallery Control Settings page to do two things:

* Specify the album you want to auto-start in the Default Gallery Asset section

* Select the ‘override the following default settings’ checkbox, then select the ‘Automatically start slideshow when page loads’ option at the bottom.

The above actions will configure the page you are on to auto-start a slideshow for the desired album. By default, this is default.aspx. You may want to preserve the default gallery behavior for this page and configure a second page to host the slideshow. To do this, make a copy of default.aspx (maybe name it slideshow.aspx), then navigate to *that* page in your web browser and go to the Gallery Control Settings page and make your changes there. That will limit the scope of your configuration to slideshow.aspx.
