Object doesn't support this property or method, with slideshow?

I have been working on a image slideshow for my client. When I test the slideshow in Internet Explorer 8, it displays the following:

  1. jquery.smoothDivScroll-1.1-min.js Line: 14 Char: 1
  2. jquery.smoothDivScroll-1.1.js Line: 15 Char: 2
  3. index.htm Line: 13 Char: 2

All displaying this error “Object doesn’t support this property or method”.

Here is the line for index.htm:


The line for jquery.smoothDivScroll-1.1.js is

$.widget("thomaskahn.smoothDivScroll", {

The line for jquery.smoothDivScroll-1.1-min.js is


Here is the link to my slideshow The slideshow I am using is [URL=“http://www.smoothdivscroll.com/”]http://www.smoothdivscroll.com/.

Can someone please tell me how I can fix those errors? Thanks in advance.

It looks like you simply need to move the jquery.ui.widget.js file to just after the jquery.min.js file

In addition to SgtLegend’s suggestion, also only include either the minified or regular version of the smoothDivScroll script (not both).
