The javascript function does not load

Hello,

This javascript function does not load?

<script language="javascript" src="ajax.js">

</script>

<td align="center" onMouseOver="this.className='cell_over';" onMouseOut="this.className='cell_out';" bgcolor="#FFFFCC"><a href="javascript:getRating('<?=$rows_articles['articles_id']?>','article_rating')" class="narmal_nav">Vote!</a></td>

When you mouseover on a td, the td changes color and when i click on the hyperlink which is inside the td cell, it is supposed to load a javascript function which is sitting in my ajax.js file
Article_ID is the number of the article and the article_rating is div that i am wishing to replace.

I think i have my syntax wrong somewhere. If i have, can someone give me some pointers to follow?

is ajax.js in the same folder as your php script?

otherwise it should work. you could write A tag differently as:

<a href="#" onclick="javascript:getRating('<?=$rows_articles['articles_id']?>','article_rating')">

no the ajax.js file is in the include folder (which is a child folder)

You will need to reference that folder then in the JavaScript src.

example:

<script language="javascript" src="childFolder/ajax.js">

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Neither works

When i look in the bottom hand corner of my browser the hint is there and it says

javascript:getRating('20','article_rating')

the 20 is the article id so should it be an integer instead of typecasted as a string?

Are you just looking to change the color scheme of your site when a button/link is clicked ?

try removing single quotation mark from your javascript call like:

javascript:getRating(20,'article_rating')
