Need help guys! Not sure what I am doing wrong here, I'm an intermediate user of Dreamweaver and trying to get this slideshow effect to work. Initially, I want to use it on my template with the rest of my pages but doesnt seem to be working. As far as I can see, the code is as it should be and I have put the div id in the table I want it but nothing appears in the preview. My code is as follows:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />

var mygallery=new fadeSlideShow({
wrapperid: "fadeshow1", //ID of blank DIV on page to house Slideshow

fadeduration: 500, //transition duration (milliseconds)

togglerid: ""
})

</script>






<style type="text/css">
<!--

</style>
</head>

<table width="693" height="749" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
<tr>
<td width="352" height="65"><img src="../Images/TopLogo.gif" width="352" height="64" /></td>
<td width="390"> <div align="center"><span class="style1"> Anytime anywhere, We will get you the lowest fare</span> </div></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td height="495">&nbsp;</td>
<td colspan="2"><div id="fadeshow1"></div></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td width="4">&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</table>
</body>
</html>

Its a possible image path issue but not 100% certain on that. They are in an images folder on my site. I downloaded the js. file along with the 3 images included so not really sure what to do on this. Have spent a few hours on this with no success.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You need to format the imagearray like this


imagearray: [
["http://i26.tinypic.com/11l7ls0.jpg", "", "", "Nothing beats relaxing next to the pool when the weather is hot."],
["http://i29.tinypic.com/xp3hns.jpg", "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cave", "_new", "Some day I'd like to explore these caves!"],
["http://i30.tinypic.com/531q3n.jpg"],
["http://i31.tinypic.com/119w28m.jpg", "", "", "What a beautiful scene with everything changing colors."] //<--no trailing comma after very last image element!
],
The img tags are not needed.
Try it, and post a link to your page if you are having trouble with it !

Thank you for getting back to me.

I have made the changes that you requested but upon previewing the template page, where the slideshow should be is just blank.

Please Advise, there is nothing coming out.

It looks all right to me (at a glance), but you need to make sure the paths to the fadeslideshow.js and the images are working. We would need to see the page live to help you any further.
