But I can't find the "file" you speak of. I am on the site. I see download.
When I click on the button for Download (production) .jQuery a bunch of code comes up that looks jumbled.
When I click on the button for Download (development) .jQuery a bunch of code comes up that looks clean.
Am I supposed to like... copy and paste this code into a txt file or something.
Ok, skip that, I think I figured it out. Create a .js doc, copy and paste the code. Now need to figure out how to link a jquery slideshow to it. Thank you for indulging me!
If you are going to use jQuery on the internet then you should link to one of the main shared copies so that it is more likely that your visitors will already have it downloaded instead of having it slow down the loading of your page.
The following is probably the most commonly used alternative:
You are definitely the .js guy felgall, I only put it there because of this bit in the article you wrote:
The next thing to check for is any code that you want to ensure gets executed before the page gets loaded (eg. a test for if your non-frames page is loading inside someone's frameset). This code needs to be in a script within the head section of your page below the title and any meta tags and link statements.
Actually, according to that, maybe only the preload script would belong in the head.
Some very good information there if you're interested themoon, see the article here.
