View Full Version : Trouble with Variable Slide Script using Nvu

02-25-2008, 11:32 PM
1) Script Title: FlexiSlide

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/flexislide.htm

3) Describe problem: I am trying to add this script to my eBay descriptions. I am using Nvu as my editor. I cut the script and paste it into Nvu and I change the variables for size of the image and the images file locations. Nothing comes up but the DynamicDrive link at the bottom of the script.

I've used the image fade script in another situation in the past with success.

I've tried copying the script between the body or head tags with the same (actually no) result. There is absolutely nothing else on the source code page!

I'm no programmer but jeez I did not think I was this much of a dufus!

Any suggestion will be appreciated.

Thank you for looking.
