    Know NOTHING about coding, Need help!

    Hi All,

    I am putting together a personal website and one of the pages is a testimonials page where I will feature recommendations people have written about me. I want the recommendations to appear one at a time, in slideshow form, fading out and then into the next one. I want the slideshow to look like this: http://css-tricks.com/examples/SimpleSlideshow/ but just with text instead of pictures.

    I have this:

    Code:
    <div id="slideshow">
       <div>
         <p style="font: 14pt/22pt " helveticaneue-light",="" "helvetica="" neue="" light",="" neue",helvetica,="" arial,="" "lucida="" grande",="" sans-serif;;color:##666666;"="">I had the pleasure of having Zach be part of my team for the Outreach division of the Bentley Microfinance Group. Zach was proactive in making recommendations to the group and was integral in transforming the group to what it is today. Working in a position that required sensitive social interactions, I would feel comfortable putting Zach in front of any client.

         <p style="font: 14pt/22pt " helveticaneue-light",="" "helvetica="" neue="" light",="" neue",helvetica,="" arial,="" "lucida="" grande",="" sans-serif;;color:##666666;"="">Zak is a natural leader. He motivates and guides others through his ability to communicate effectively. In my experience, Zak approaches each task with both an innovative and creative prospective. He is a provider of honest feedback and is sought out frequently for advice. Any organization would benefit greatly with Zak on their team.

Zach is hardworking and works well in a team. As part of an excellent group, Zach coordinated effectively with his team members and attached more importance to the team's goal than to individual contributions. Different members of the team with diverse backgrounds went through the forming and eventually performing cycle of the Capstone project to deliver a well-researched and commendable presentation. It was my pleasure to work with Zach and I wish him good luck with his future endeavors.

He is one of the most hard working people that I have ever been around. He is willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish any of his goals. Whenever he is given a task, he goes above and beyond to accomplish it. He balances everything on his plate with pure ease and completes everything with a smile on his face. He brings forth many assets to the table that help him become the successful individual that he is to this day. He is an extremely strong member of any team that he is a part of and his appearance and hard work does not go unrecognized.

Discussing the recent market trends, developments, and ideas has become routine with Zak, and he is very knowledgeable and has a desire to learn more and keep dissecting investment ideas and develop the thesis and catalysts that affect the stock's movements.

He is persistent in his work and will consistently achieve high level results.

He quickly learned the tasks necessary for him to be effective with his summer projects. He did not hestiate to ask questions and learn, in order to make recommendations in timely manner. Most importantly, he has a strong drive to get the most value during his summer internship.

    #slideshow { 
        margin: 50px auto; 
        position: relative; 
        width: 240px; 
        height: 240px; 
        padding: 10px; 
        box-shadow: 0 0 20px rgba(0,0,0,0.4); 
    }
    
    #slideshow > div { 
        position: absolute; 
        top: 10px; 
        left: 10px; 
        right: 10px; 
        bottom: 10px; 
    }
    
    $("#slideshow > div:gt(0)").hide();
    
    setInterval(function() { 
      $('#slideshow > div:first')
        .fadeOut(1000)
        .next()
        .fadeIn(1000)
        .end()
        .appendTo('#slideshow');
    },  3000);
    This code does not work. Can someone help me modify it so it does work?

    Thanks!

    This forum is not a free coding service. As a general rule, the people helping out in this forum don't write code for others, but try to help with fixing code that doesn't work. You may perhaps get someone to write this script for you, but you'll be far more likely to get help if you have made a substantial effort and written some code yourself. Then someone here will almost certainly help you correct/improve your work.

    You will find many excllent scripts of this kind at http://www.vicsjavascripts.org.uk/

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.
