Hello,

I have a slide show on this page:

http://tinyurl.com/nz8vrwl

And it works in FF, Chrome, Safari but not IE, it does not even show up.

Can you please let me know why.

Thanks

It appears the the excessive scripting has junked the page.  In the console there are three fatal errors in the scripting.  Two on prototype.js and one in accordian.js

The HTML validator cannot process the page.  It sets the the doctype as html 401 (that's default when it can't figure out the page), and then it throws one error indicating the page is an empty document.

So the problem is somewhere in that rat's nest of scripting; probably a conflict or incompatibility that IE cannot resolve.

Your best approach is to remove everything except the slide show, and then bring back the other scripting until it breaks and you will know which script is the problem.

Thanks for looking at it.

It is very strange because the headers are the same on the homepage and int page, the homepage validates and the interior page doesn't.

It does not make sense, you can test by viewing source and direct import to w3c

Interesting ... with direct input it manages to process and it finds 8 errors. They are all minor except for a duplicate style attribute here:
<div style="display: none;" class="jqb_slide" style="width:600px;">

Probably not a coincidence that IE fails right there.

But still no slide show.  Which brings it back to the scripting.  With that much jquery in the page it is almost certain that the document object has been damaged by a conflict or incompatibility.

Thanks for your help. I just trashed the module and hard coded it, works much better.
