First off, please excuse my understanding (or lack thereof) of HTMLand DHTML. Thankyou. You've got a great site here and heopefully, with time, I'll be dispensing advice as well as asking for it :D.

I'm making a website that appears in a pop-up from a splash page, and need to get a sytem working to scroll the contents scrolling without resorting to intrusive scrollbars. I'm trying to use code from this website (at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/pagescroller.htm) to get the contents of a layer created in Dreamweaver to scroll using images, but am having trouble getting it to work. I'll put the code on at the end of this message. I've placed the code just before the </div> tag, in which I want the content to go. So, any ideas about what I need to do?

<div id="staticbuttons" style="position:absolute;">
<a href="javascript:" onmouseover="myspeed=-thespeed" onmouseout="myspeed=0"><img
src="arrows_up.gif" border="0"></a><br>
<a href="javascript:" onmouseover="myspeed=thespeed" onmouseout="myspeed=0"><img
src="arrows_dn.gif" border="0"></a>

var Hoffset=70 //Enter buttons' offset from right edge of window (adjust depending on images width)
var Voffset=80 //Enter buttons' offset from bottom edge of window (adjust depending on images height)
var thespeed=3 //Enter scroll speed in integer (Advised: 1-3)

var ieNOTopera=document.all&&navigator.userAgent.indexOf("Opera")==-1
var myspeed=0

var ieHoffset_extra=document.all? 15 : 0
var cross_obj=document.all? document.all.staticbuttons : document.getElementById? document.getElementById("staticbuttons") : document.staticbuttons

function iecompattest(){
return (document.compatMode && document.compatMode!="BackCompat")? document.documentElement : document.body

function positionit(){
var dsocleft=document.all? iecompattest().scrollLeft : pageXOffset
var dsoctop=document.all? iecompattest().scrollTop : pageYOffset
var window_width=ieNOTopera? iecompattest().clientWidth+ieHoffset_extra : window.innerWidth+ieHoffset_extra
var window_height=ieNOTopera? iecompattest().clientHeight : window.innerHeight

if (document.all||document.getElementById){
else if (document.layers){

function scrollwindow(){

function initializeIT(){
if (myspeed!=0){

if (document.all||document.getElementById||document.layers)


EDIT: I've just realised that this should be in help with DD scripts... I'll do a link to it there, but if any passing MOD could move the topic, I'd be grateful. Thanks.

I'm having trouble following just what the trouble is however, I did notice that:

I've placed the code just before the </div> tag, in which I want the content to godoesn't sound like:

Simply add the below script to the bottom of your page (ie: right above </BODY>):Oh, and -
