View Full Version : Fadeslide Show Not Appearing

10-10-2010, 01:01 PM
1) Script Title: Slideshow v2.0

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

3) Describe problem:

Up until a few days ago my fadeshow at www.dust.co.uk was working fine. Now it does not show. I have checked the coding and it is the same as another site I have (www.stardustkids.co.uk) with the same coding. I have checked code, website layout code etc but I am completely stumped. Can anyone help? Thank you

Au contraire, there are no http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js (should be 1.4.2), fadeslideshow.js nor the on page new fadeSlideShow() scripts on the problem page.

Both pages do have:

<div id="homebanner"></div>

Which is obviously meant to be the wrapperid.

I am a complete html novice so would you be so kind as to give me clearer instructions on what has to be changed. I can find my way around the code okay to change it but don't really understand what it does. Thanks in advance.

Well basically there is no slideshow script on the dust.co.uk page. No:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="acatalog/fadeslideshow.js">

or anything at all like that. In your first post you typed:

Not so. Check again. Make sure you're looking at the correct page.

It is frustrating as that code does existing in the form of a subroutine on line 43 called Stardust Home Page Banner JavaScript. This is the same as the working site but when source code is view it is not there. I have even tried pasting the code directly in and it still does not appear. Something must be disabled somewhere but I can't find where. It is frustrating.

But we're not talking about the stardust page, only the dust page really.

I'd suggest forgetting about the one that works. Leave that one alone, it works after all. It's solution is probably unique to its domain.

Concentrate on the dust.co.uk page.

Go to:


and follow the step by step instructions found there for installation. Apply them to the dust.co.uk page. If you're still having problems, let us know.
