1) Script Title: Simple Controls Gallery v1.3

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex4/simplegallery.htm

3) Describe problem: I copied everything as per the instructions and everything is in the same folder but nothing shows up when I preview it in a browser. The page is in the same folder with the .js scripts and the control images and the source images but nothings shows up when previewed?

You may need more than one image array. The one image you do have (1269.jpg) may be a 404 not found. In IE there can be no comma after the last image array:

. . . rg/wiki/Swimming_pool", "_new", "There's nothing like a nice swim in the Summer."],

If you want more help:

Please post a link to a page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.

There is no link to the page because Im not putting it online if it doesn't work. I copied and pasted the code and it just doesn't work. I don't know what else to do.

I need a link to a page that shows the problem happening (it can just be an orphan page somewhere on your site/the net, doesn't have to be linked to or from your other pages). Otherwise it would be just a shot in the dark and/or a game of twenty questions trying to solve this issue/issues for you. It does need to have all of its resources (images, external scripts snd styles, etc.).

If it's just a question of getting it to work though, follow the step by step instructions on the demo page. Do not deviate from them in any way. Once you have that working, then you may start customizing it. Keep backups along the way so that you can see the part where (if any) you're going wrong.
