Hi, Could someone please tell me how i would go about adding this code to a ss site. I've tried a few different things but can't seem to get it to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

<style type="text/css"> #Div1, #Div2, #Div3 { display: none; } </style>

<script type="text/javascript">
function Toggle(theDiv) {
document.getElementById("Div1").style.display = "none";
document.getElementById("Div2").style.display = "none";
document.getElementById("Div3").style.display = "none";
document.getElementById(theDiv).style.display = "block";

<input type="radio" name="ToggleDivs" onclick="Toggle('Div1');" >Turn on Div 1<br >
<input type="radio" name="ToggleDivs" onclick="Toggle('Div2');" >Turn on Div 2<br >
<input type="radio" name="ToggleDivs" onclick="Toggle('Div3');" >Turn on Div 3<br >
<div id="Div1">I am the content of Div 1</div>
<div id="Div2">I am the content of Div 2</div>
<div id="Div3">I am the content of Div 3</div>

Basically the problem is that SS strips the 'onclick' function. So i've used the following code to try and get around that:

<script type="text/javascript">
window.onload = function () {
document.getElementById('ToggleDivs').onclick = function () { document.getElementById("Div1").style.display = "block"; }
document.getElementById('ToggleDivs').onclick = function () { document.getElementById("Div2").style.display = "block"; }


<input name="ToggleDivs" type="radio" >Toggle1
<input name="ToggleDivs" type="radio" >Toggle2

<div id="Div1">Toggle1 Result</div>
<div id="Div2">Toggle2 Result</div>

It works for the first Toggle but i can't get it working so that when the 2nd Toggle is selected the 1st disappears and the 2nd result is posted instead.

Any ideas please?

Or is there just a way to enable the 'onclick' function so that it is not stripped in the CMS??
