Sigh, I'm new and need help!

I'm working on the business website and can't seem to get the java script to work for the "Mouse Tail Clock". I do have another bit of java script (for the status bar) on the same page but in the <body> section as opposed to the <head> section that this is in.

I was under the impression I could have more than one script on a page.

It was working fine before I added the status bar script into the body.

I will gladly post the web address so that you can see the source or I could copy and paste it into a message here......

Thanks for any help!

You might be able to find some answers here:

There's a lot of info on that site.

Hi, post the two scripts.

I am willing to bet that both use the page onload call.

Post the scripts and I'll modify them when I get the time so that both functions run off of one onload.

The first one is the clock and goes in the <head> section, the second is the status bar scroll that goes in the <body> section. So it was the onload thing. I was wondering about that, but I don't know enough about Javascript to finger the culprit! Thank you for your help!

Librarygirl,

In the future please use the "code" tags, it makes it easier to follow long bunches of code, and it also prevents the html from being parsed and displaying the script incorrectly here.

Here is the fix:

1) add this onload call to your "body" tag.

Code:onload="scrollMsg();CravenIsTired()"


Like so:

Code:<body onload="scrollMsg();CravenIsTired()">


2) Remove this line from the status scrolling script:

Code:window.onload=scrollMsg


3) Replace this line (in the first script):

Code:if (ns||ie)window.onload=Delay;


With this:

Code:function CravenIsTired(){
if (ns||ie)window.onload=Delay;
}


Please test it and let us know how it goes, I have not tested it.

Hello....

I tried it and it said I had errors on the page and neither script worked!

What's my next option? I'm afaid I just won't be able to have both.

Thank you for your time!

No need to PM the link, I sat down and hacked it out for ya. It was a pain, the setTimeout in each script was too close, and was causing variable conflicts. Changing it too much or making it a setInterval would crash the browser or make one of the actions too slow or way too fast.

Ultimately, the solution was pretty simple, with a small rewrite of variables.

Here is a page with both scripts functioning perfectly (cept for some browser sniffin' excised, but I'm not getting back to this.

But before I go, I do want to note that these kinds of scripts are very "amateuristic" and very unprofessional in this kind of implementation. Since you mentioned that this is a business site the useability side of me had to point that out.

It's usually only used on geocities-type sites.

Anywho, enough preaching, here's your code:
