Jquery's fadeIn() method takes a 'callback' method as a second, optional argument.

This would be the action it takes after completing the primary action.


function hide() {

$('#output1').fadeIn('slow', function() { $('#add-comment').slideUp('slow')});

I tried to do it before but it didnt work. and your function has a missing $ sign

function hide() {

$('#output1').fadeIn('slow', function() {$('#add-comment').slideUp('slow')});


But thanks anyway :)

(Code example update)

It should work fine. The problem may be elsewhere in your code.

Are you getting any errors reported?
Are you able to post the url?

Thank you very much :)

Hi all!

I'm a complete novice when it comes to javascript and jquery.

I've just put a jquery photo gallery on my website http://renaissanceboutique.com.au/

It looks great, but the problem is that the gallery javascript conflicts with the wordpress theme javascript that controls the sliding menus in the left hand sidebar.

Is there a simple way that I can solve this?

Thank you!
