I have set up a slide show on all pages which takes images from special offers pages and lets them click through to the offer. All works fine apart from the userform contact page.

I am using hard links at the moment to js docs and the function below before I download and set up on live server.

The I notice the userform uses jquery, is this conflicting with the jquery in the slideshow. How do I get around this issue?

<!-- include jQuery library -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<!-- include Cycle plugin -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://cloud.github.com/downloads/malsup/cycle/jquery.cycle.all.latest.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
$('.slideshow').cycle({
      fx: 'scrollUp' // choose your transition type, ex: fade, scrollUp, shuffle, etc...
   });
});
</script>

You should use the <% require %> syntax to require files to prevent duplication. UDF will include the jquery from sapphire so for your slideshow you can do

<% require javascript(sapphire/thirdparty/jquery/jquery.js %>

Which will prevent duplication of the library inclusion. Or you can block the one UDF uses and Require the one off the google api

I am having a similar problems with a Jquery slideshow, I would like to know Will where your solution above is positioned? Should this be in the Page.ss file? I have tried this file location without success. My slide show works well on all pages except pages that have a form.

Frustrating
