i loved this Trailer Script when i seen it but when i added it to my site...the cursor no longer would work on any link or button...i didnt want to save this to my site and then find that i cant edit my pages later...permission to use this script was given, on the website where i found it...

so my question is...is the script causing this to happen or will the cursor fully work after its completely saved to my site...and if the script is wrong...how can i fix it ? the script will be posted below...

thank you
angelica

Well, clearly some lines are missing..
This is the right code, copy/paste it to Your site

i hate to do this ....but i finally got the time to sit down and add the script to my pages, ...now it doesnt work at all...i even changing the headings back to the way they were thinking it might had been the copyrite or something but it wasnt...i emailed "Joyce" the person that wrote this and basically she told me i was on my own b/c it worked just fine on her site *lol* so...i have no clue what to do with it...and im beginning to wonder if its really worth the trouble...

Does anyone know where maybe i could find a simlar script? ...the only difference with this one and all the others was the images overlapped on one another and spread out when they trailed...instead of just 6 images following the cursor around on the page...any suggestions would be greatly appericated !

thank you
angelica

Hello,
The script above works under Firefox, but not under IE6 !!
Message IE:
Object required on line:
rightedge=B? document.body.clientWidth-T1[1] : window.innerWidth-T1[1]-20

Any idea ??
Many thanks for your help.
