    Hi Everyone!
    Nice to finally join this community!
    Okay, so I’m trying to use the Anything Slider, which I’ve actually used before and had no problem.
    This time around, I need video functionality. So I’m using additional scripts. I’ve already got two other dynamic elements on the page requiring their own scripts. If I shuffle the order of the initialization scripts some things stop working, but the Anything Slider never works. I’ve even deleted all scripts and still it won’t work.

    My code:

    I had a similar problem on a website I built using Anything Slider with a javascript dropdown menu which I resolved using jquery.noConflict. Try implementing the noConflict variable on one of the other scripts (i.e. not the Anything Slider one). You can set var = j as opposed to var = $j. It worked for me so maybe worth a try.

    Hi @Laughhearty!

    Hmmm, codepen doesn’t seem to want to run that code. Something about iframe security. So I moved your code over to [jsFiddle]( and did the following:

    1.Removed the `var $j = jQuery.noConflict()` because you’re already using jQuery for other plugins and there isn’t any conflict with other libraries.

    2.Removed `navigationFormatter: formatText` because `formatText` hasn’t been defined, so it was just causing an error.

    3.Changed `$j(‘#slider1’).anythingSlider` to `jQuery(‘#slider’).anythingSlider` because there isn’t a `1` in the ID.

    You could also combine all of the document ready functions into one as I did in this [updated jsFiddle](

    Lastly, this script is missing (404 error): `css_browser_selector.js`

    Thank you so much for the help!
    Mottie, I implemented your suggestions and it’s not working for me locally or remotely. And all the more aggravating, because I can see it working just fine in jsFiddle! Aarghhhhhh!!!

    What have I missed?

    I’m not sure what the problem could be, did you open the javascript console (F12 in most browsers) and look to see if there were any script errors?

    I clicked the console tab in firebug and got no errors. Is this what you’re talking about?

    Well, I guess I’d need to see the live site. I’m not that good at guessing ;)

    Okay, got an answer over at Experts-Exchange from Kravamir (he’s a God!) Apparently, without a doctype in jsFiddle an error wasn’t showing up. I needed to add change this:

    buildComplete: function() {
    splash.find(‘li.slide-closed div’).css(‘display’, ‘none’);
    splash.find(‘li.slide-open div’).fadeIn();

    to this:

    buildComplete: function() {
    var splash=jQuery(‘#splash’);
    splash.find(‘li.slide-closed div’).css(‘display’, ‘none’);
    splash.find(‘li.slide-open div’).fadeIn();

    So I got it working, now I just need to make the images fade instead of slide. I’ve downloaded animate.css, but of course that’s not working for me either!

    Just set the [`mode` option]( to `fade`.
