1) Carousel Slideshow HELP!

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

3) Describe problem: I used the script in a website and it works in Google Chrome, but when I open the site in IE 7 I do'nt see the Carousel slideshow.
What is wrong? how can I fix it??
:confused:

It could be that when you edited this:


Car_Image_Sources=new Array(
"photo1.jpg","http://www.dynamicdrive.com",
"photo2.jpg","http://www.javascriptkit.com",
"photo3.jpg","", //this slide isn't linked
"photo4.jpg","http://www.codingforums.com" // NOTE No comma after last line
);

You allowed a comma to creep in there where it doesn't belong. Most modern browsers, IE 9 and Chrome included, but not IE 7, will error correct that for you. Technically speaking though you may not have a comma there.

The browser cache may need to be cleared and/or the page refreshed to see changes.

But it could be something else or there could also be other problems.

If you want more help, please post a link to the page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.

OK, I found it, and it is something else. On that page:

http://www.johanlievens.be/De%20doorluchtige%20geest%20van%20de%20Waterman.html

You have two body tags, one where it should be, at the start of the body content:


<body bgcolor="#666699" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" topmargin="0">

And one near the end:


<body onload="Carousel()">

Technically only one of these tags is allowed per page. So get rid of the second one and make the first one be:


<body onload="Carousel()" bgcolor="#666699" leftmargin="0" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" topmargin="0">

Oh, I am so thankfull, it works indeed.
It is'nt easy to do the first time, without knowing a lot about scripts and things like that.

I got rid of the second one and did like you said. I published the file again and now it works fine.
Thank you very much.
