I have multilple js files loading into my webpage... they all worki fine together but as soon as i add this to run first it stops the others working....

Attached is the entire code... im a complete beginner when it comes to javascript... is there any reason why this would stop the others working!?


var ddpowerzoomer={
      dsetting: {defaultpower:2, powerrange:[2,7], magnifiersize:[75, 75]},

      $magnifier: {outer:null, inner:null, image:null},
      activeimage: null,

      movemagnifier:function(e, moveBol, zoomdir){

<script type="text/javascript">

jQuery(document).ready(function($){ //fire on DOM ready


this has to be in the head section... seems to be playing a role!!!!

The code you are using seems to be jQuery while you are using jQuery.noConflict(); before it.

the jQuery.noConflict(); should only be used before JavaScript that isn't jQuery so it wouldn't conflict with the $ Selector.

try removing the jQuery.noConflict(); at the top and see if this makes it work, also using a console debugger like FireFox firebug add-on might help you figure out what is causing the error.
