The error console is screaming that $ is not defined, which tells us that something isn't being included properly.

I got rid of that "j" you highlighted. I will admit I have zero experience with javascript, so I am not having any luck getting this working. I am doing something wrong here.

I got rid of that "j" you highlighted. I will admit I have zero experience with javascript, so I am not having any luck getting this working. I am doing something wrong here.The same error is still there because your 3 script URLs are malformed. http://www.billboardfamily.co

Also your markup is in dire need of validation: http://validator.aborla.net/

ok, I fixed that. It seems to be getting closer. Now it just says "Loading". It does not actually load up, but it is getting closer.

It is also pissing off my header, pushing some items down, and also changing the font size of the "Reviews" slider int he footer....it is right on other pages. And my nav bar int he header is now gone on that page. Hmmmmm.

BTW, thanks for the help.

Both FireFox and MSIE complain about a missing function.

For FF it is this line:


saying that "element.dispatchEvent is not a function".

That's at line 4619 in the "prototype.js" library.

With MSIE it's line 4621, two lines later. So something is clearly missing. I'm guessing that you need yet another library added to your page.

thanks, I found a plugin that was causing some of the issue, but I still do not have it working yet, after removing the suspect plugin.
