Using presentation slideshow in website; just replaced an image in the dropimages array listing and now my slideshow is no longer cycling. No images are showing.
I've previously been successful when replacing an existing image with a new one, so not sure why it is not operating properly now. No other change was made, just a new image name inserted between quote marks in the list. ??

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

Thanks John -

This is the line in the code that I changed...dropimages[2]="springbouquet.jpg"
I changed out only the image name between the quote marks, then uploaded my image file and my page. The slideshow is now not showing. From your comment before that fixed a previous problem, i made sure file name was correctly entered, as in .jpg, not .JPG.
After that, I'm stumped.

There are 15 images (0 to 14) and only 14 links (0 to 13), make another link. And the rest of the script has been edited and/or has become corrupt replace:

John, that did the trick. I'm very "green" on all this stuff; I'm afraid to tinker too much with code so I truly only removed one image name, between quote marks, and replaced with a new image name. I did exact same thing 3 weeks ago and worked beautifully. Any way to explain in simple terms so I can understand what happened?...

It's always possible you did something without realizing it. If you didn't do it. Your editor may have. It's best to use a text only editor like NotePad for these types of edits. It's rare but sometimes the server will do these sorts of things. And there's always the remote possibility that files become corrupt on disk or during transfer.
