Hi,

I have a web page that has a javascript/jquiry slideshow on it. I want to put the code on an external js page so that if I make changes down the road, I don't have to do it to every page (currently the script is on each page).

Here is the current html code on the web page (I highlighted the js script I want to move in green):

Code:

   "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

When I create the new external .js page and copy that same code to it. I get a message that says:

"There is a syntax error on line 10. Code hinting may not work until you fix this error". I highlighted line 10 in green.

Here is the code from the external js page:

    $('.slideshow').cycle({
		fx: 'fade' // choose your transition type, ex: fade, scrollUp, shuffle, etc...
	    	
			});


$('#s3').cycle({ 
    fx:    'fade', 
    speed:  5500,
	cleartype: 1,
cleartypeNoBg: false,
height: 'auto',

timeout: 8000,

sync: 0,

fadeOut:'slow', 



nowrap: 0,
randomizeEffects: 0,
pause: 0
	
	
 });

});
</script>

I am not really familiar with js or jquiry. I cut and paste this into my code. I have no idea what the error is.

Any thoughts???

Thanks,
