09-05-2014, 01:03 PM
1) Script Title: :: Ultimate Fade-in slideshow (v2.6)

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

3) Describe problem: DynamicDrive script causes google alert. The script for this function reference triggers a Google Malware warning.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

the script reference for "fadeinslideshow" is triggering a Google Malware warning, flagging my website(s) and forcing a Google "Warning" page.

Is there something wrong? Or is there something i should be doing differently to use this script and not upset Google?

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

You could try linking to a later version to see if that changes anything;
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

Also, if your page is on an ssl (https instead of http) all you need to do might be to change the protocol:

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

You can always include secure content on an insecure page, but if you include insecure content on a secure page, most browsers these days will flag it as some sort of danger.

In fact the current recommendation from Google (googleapis) is to use no protocol, ex:

<script type="text/javascript" src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

That will force the same protocol as the page is using. But will not work locally for testing. The page must then be live.
