1) Script Title: Conveyor belt slideshow

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

3) Describe problem: This script was working perfectly for me in a HTML widget. I wanted to add additional images and as a precaution I copied and pasted the code that was working perfectly into a word doc. I then should have used that just as a backup of something that worked, but instead I added the images on the word doc and then pasted it into the widget. Now it doesn't work.
I have started all over again with the script from DD and I still cannot get it to work. I am so frustrated and I think I should take a break! 5743:(

As you've discovered, Word is not a friend to the web - it is a word processor not a code editor, so it will do nasty things to code.

I have no idea what a widget is in relation to whatever web builder you're using, and unfortunately, most of the regulars here do not use web builders. We prefer to code manually so we probably won't be much help in assisting with usage there.

The best thing you can do is to paste a link to your actual page. We can't troubleshoot an image or code we are unable to see working in the browser.

There's too much going on with your source code for anyone to comfortably troubleshoot for you - 2000 lines. There are also a lot of code/formatting errors (obsolete tags, stylesheets embedded in the body, etc) so you should consider cleaning your page up with the help of a validator https://validator.w3.org/nu/?doc=http%3A%2F%2Fputnamcountyfair.org

The script however is very old and looks to be incompatible now with some browsers - the demo on the demo page isn't working for me in IE11 for example - so it would probably be worth abandoning this script and looking in the library again for something more modern and robust: http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex14/

I thank you for your help. Because of the web builder I am using I never gave a thought to checking things with the validator. I now have made a step forward in having one image in the "belt" showing on a test page, but it isn't scrolling. That is my biggest problem right now. http://putnamcountyfair.org/tes-conveyor

I can't send an attachment of the script I have because the limit is 19k.
