View Full Version : Resolved Ultimate Fade-In Slideshow and my jQuery

04-04-2011, 06:15 PM
I have been using the older version of the slide show, but now that IE9 is out, we have had to upgrade because of an IE9 mouseover bug.

The new version works great, however I found out that none of my own jQuery code works anymore, causing our client's sites to be basically unusable. I've had to restore the older version of the slideshow because of that.

I also upgraded the version of JQuery I was using from 1.3.2 to 1.5.2

The error my jQuery file receives is: "Uncaught TypeError: Property '$' of object [object DOMWindow] is not a function"

I tried changing the $ to 'jQuery' in the lines that received errors, (example: $(".btnShowEvent").click(show_event); to jQuery(".btnShowEvent").click(show_event); ) but even that fails.

I really need help as I have about a dozen client web sites using the old slide show tool...

Turns out I had missed one of the $ symbols in my jquery, which was throwing up tons of errors in Chrome's Inspect Element... working now! But have to make sure all jquery references on all my code use 'jQuery' instead of $

It's great that you fixed it, but it probably would have been simpler to just comment out (red) the NoConflict line (highlighted) in fadeslideshow.js:
