How to make a switch button useful?

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I´m currently creating a website and have to use some kind of a switch button (in iOS-Style). I already implemented the switch button, however I want the user to switch with the button between two upcoming photo galleries. Because documentation in the www is lacking, I would need your support.

Because I´m pretty unexperienced in website coding, I used the W3school switch button (https://www.w3schools.com/howto/howto_css_switch.asp)

I hope you could help and I´m sorry for being such unexperienced but having high demands.
