Magento Go and jQuery Problem

  • # October 1, 2012 at 11:18 am

    After following the instructions here:(… ) I still haven’t been able to get the jQuery Cycle plugin to function.

    Demo site is: ( )

    After trying everything I could think of I’m still getting the following errors from firebug:

    1) $("#nav1").cycle is not a function
    next: '#next', prev: '#prev' (line 225)

    2) $(".slideshow").cycle is not a function
    ...ger: '#slidenav', speed: 600, timeout: 5000, pause: 1, cleartype: true, clearty... (line 217)

    Thank you!

    I’ve also wrapped my jquery script with:

    The order seems to be correct now but I’m getting these errors:

    ReferenceError: Can’t find variable: j172
    ReferenceError: Can’t find variable: j172

    Any ideas?

    I’m not seeing those errors, but you do have a couple 404s kicking around.
