1) Script Title: Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.4)

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

3) Describe problem: The slideshow shows perfectly on local browser before uploading to the server. After I upload, the slideshow doesn't show up. Please, help. I'm new to HTML coding. Wanna build my site on my own. Thank you.

viewing your source it is being displayed as a single line

having sorted that out and using

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/fadeslideshow.js">
/************************************************ Ultimate Fade In Slideshow v2.0- (c) Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use* Visit Dynamic Drive at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for this script and 100s more***********************************************/

the slideshow works

seems that the line breaks of your editor are not being recognised when you upload, try using notepad

Thanks for reply.

I did what you told me to. I rewrote everything in notepad with the appropriate lines and paragraphs, and included the piece of code you posted. It doesn't work. It works on computer and it doesn't work after upload.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you.

Huurrrayyy.. :)

Thanks a lot.

What I did is I used Notepad to ad lines, paragraphs to the .js file as well and it worked. Why is it like this. Whenever I was opening the file in other program: wordpad, notepad++ it was showing normally, not as a single ling html code. When I open it with notepad it shows only 1 line html code, so I copied and paste and saved from notepad.

But is it a program to edit html that would behave as notepad, would show the document as it really is... ?

Thanks a lot...
