Hey Everyone,

I am trying to use the FrogJS javascript (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/frogjs/index.htm) image slideshow on my wordpress blog, and for some reason I can't get the lil' bugger to work! :(

Here's the url to the post (seperate test blog) I am trying to use it on:

I have added the css styles to the blog's main .css file, I have uploaded the javascripts to a scripts folder, and linked them in the site's header. Here's the source of the page where the images should display:

<div class="post" id="post-5">
<h4 class="date">April 17th, 2008</h4>
<h2 class="headline"><a href="http://www.destinationsweekly.com/?p=5" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent Link to FrogJS test">FrogJS test</a></h2>

<div class="entry">
<p>Some text above Frog DIV</p>

<div id="FrogJS">
<p><a title="Jolie Myers / The State News" rel="http://portfolio.statenews.com/users/Jolie_Myers/" href="http://www.destinationsweekly.com/images/1.jpg"><br />

Is this possible to do with wordpress? I notice it adds paragraph tags to all my image links, could this be effecting it? HELLLP!!! lol. Thanks in Advace!

You need to upload the effects.js file that comes with frog (in FrogJS1.1.zip that I assume you downloaded from the demo page) to this location:


The frog script needs it in order to work. There could still also be other problems. Take care of that and get back to us.

I had the same problem, the directions were horrible.
