JQuery snippet no longer works on new server.

Hi All,

My knowledge of Jquery and javascript is not all that great but just moved my site to a new server and for some reason this code no longer hides the element on pageload:

Event.observe(window, 'load', function() {
		$$('.hide_on_start').each(function(node) {

Open in new window

Not sure what would cause this to happen but any element given the "hide_on_start" class should be hidden when the page is first loaded.

Any ideas why this has happened?

Has the path to jquery changed ?

Use firebug and see what the errors are...

Ahh yes thank you maeltar, got  "Ajax not defined" error which then made me realize that I'd commented out prototip and scriptaculous reference.
