1) Script Title: Continuous Reel Slideshow

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

3) Describe problem: Using Dreamweaver CS4, the Slideshow scripts work when I preview in Firefox 4.01 and IE 8.0. In IE I see a small box with an X in it instead of the jpg images scrolling. The scripts also work in Dreamweaver Live View.

I just uploaded everything as is from my PC WebSite folder to the server and the scripts are not working. The site in question is: http://ollonline.com/

Apologize in advance if this is a rookie question. I am relatively new to Dreamweaver but have spent quite a bit of time getting up to speed.

Thanks in advance,
Jim

The image paths you've set inside the script are correctly incorrect, for example, the first path you've declared is:


["images/10-11Coach Carter.jpg"],

which to the browser means:

http://ollonline.com/images/10-11cheerleaders.jpg

If you visit the above, it returns a page not found error. Make sure all the image paths you've specified inside the script are valid.

Thanks for the quick reply. As I thought, a rookie mistake. The full path to my image is "ftp://ollonline.com/httpdocs/Images/10-11cheerleaders.JPG". The browser does understand this after I supply the login id and password for the ftp server. I have tried "httpdocs/Images/10-11cheerleaders.JPG" within the script but that does not work either.

Perhaps trying your patience with rookie questions:

1. Why do the other images on my site resolve correctly within the Index.html page and sub pages with only the "images/file_name.jpg" reference?
2. How do I get around the login & Password request from the FTP server?

Thanks in advance,
Jim

Sorry if this is a duplicate but realized I replied to my own original question ...

I finally figured out the correct reference is: "http://ollonline.com/Images/10-11cheerleaders.jpg". Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
