I designed this website a few years ago https://basso56.com/

and it has functioned without issue. I was asked to revise the site today see that the slideshow is no longer working. I am not savvy enough to see what could have possibly caused the issue. I appreciate any help you can offer.

The link to the 'jquery.cycle.all.js' script has changed since you built the website. Its now:

 

https://malsup.github.io/jquery.cycle.all.js

 

Its advisable to download the script and host it on your own web server instead of relying on a link to an external script housed on github. Usually a cdn is reliable but I'm not sure about files hosted on github. I dont think I would class github as a 'content delivery network', were most recognised scripts are housed and are reasonably reliable, github is

@gregjb,

Osgood is correct.  GitHub is not a content delivery network (CDN), never was and should not be used that way. That's why your slideshow plugin is failing.

 

Also Fancybox 4 is the preferred plugin now.  The script resides on an actual CDN at JS deliver which you may source directly in your code from this link. 

 

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@fancyapps/ui@4.0/dist/fancybox.umd.js"></script>

 

That said, commercial websites need a license to use Fancybox 4. See links below for more details.

Hope that helps.

Thank you. The site is going to be redone, I just needed it to function for a few weeks. Will definitely look into better practices moving forward.

In that case, rebuild your sites responsively with Bootstrap and use the built-in Bootstrap Carousel. No 3rd party plugins needed. 🙂

 

Dreamweaver CC supports Bootstrap 4.

Thank you! I've been out of the loop for awhile, it would've taken me forever to figure it out 🙂
