Hello!

I've been fighting with a jQuery slider all day, and it's going nowhere because admittedly I have extremely limited jQuery knowledge. I am really hoping that someone here is better at this than I am and can tell me why I see a list of the items that should be in the slider stacked up on top of each other rather than seeing the actual slider. Here is the functions.php code. All CSS is in place, but I can copy/paste the stylesheet if necessary as well.

If this isn't an appropriate forum for this, can you point me in the right direction? I don't even know which way is up anymore!!!


Code:
<?php	 	

/* HEADER SCRIPTS */
function headscript() {
global $post; 

if (function_exists('is_products_page')){
if ( get_post_type() == 'wpsc-product' || is_products_page() )
	return;

}
?>
<script type="text/javascript">

	var _gaq = _gaq || [];
	_gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-3270175-9']);
	_gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);

	(function() {
		var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
		ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
		var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
	})();

	//On Click Event
	$("ul.tabs li").click(function() {
		$("ul.tabs li").removeClass("active"); //Remove any "active" class
		$(this).addClass("active"); //Add "active" class to selected tab
		$(".tab_content").hide(); //Hide all tab content
		var activeTab = $(this).find("a").attr("href"); //Find the rel attribute value to identify the active tab + content
		$(activeTab).fadeIn(); //Fade in the active content
		return false;
