I'm trying to add a Javascript slide show to my WordPress home page. In my theme folder I have a js folder and then in that I have jquery.cross-slide.min.js and jquery.min.js.

This is what I have and what I'm pasting into my post area:

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.cross-slide.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">
function() {
sleep: 3,
fade: 1
}, [
{ src: 'images/slideshows/block1.jpg' },
{ src: 'images/slideshows/block2.jpg' },
{ src: 'images/slideshows/block3.jpg' }

If I paste this into a WordPress page throught the HTML editor it doesn't work. Please could you check for errors and advice.


You pasted this in the regular post editor, where you also type your post content? This will not work, the editor filters out invalid HTML, like Javascript. I recommend you install one of the numerous slider gallery plugins and add your images via the existing gallery functionality.

  • Script tags go in the document head, and should be registered/enqueued using wp_register_script() and wp_enqueue_script(), and then hooked into the document head, ideally at the wp_enqueue_scripts hook. – Chip Bennett Jun 27 '11 at 0:54
