    Hi Guys,

    I am not a JS buff which is why I am struggling with this image slider. I have been following a tutorial (found here- http://tutorialzine....lery-slideshow/) and trying to modify for a specific site.

    The site in question can be found here: http://www.alihitch....jects/rgmotors/

    As you can see, I am trying to get each image to change when a specific menu link is clicked.

    I have done what I can to make sure that the code is right and fits with the HTML/CSS.

    Of course, I never expected this to work first time.

    The HTML , CSS and JS are as follows respectively:

    <section class="gallery">
            <div id="slides">
                <div class="slide"><img src="images/gallery/image1.png" width="560px" height="220px"></div>
                <div class="slide"><img src="images/gallery/image2.png" width="560px" height="220px"></div>
                <div class="slide"><img src="images/gallery/image3.png" width="560px" height="220px"></div>
                <div class="slide"><img src="images/gallery/image4.png" width="560px" height="220px"></div>
            </div><!-- .slides -->
            <div id="menu">
                    <li class="menuItem"><a href="">1. MOT</a></li>
                    <li class="menuItem menuItem2"><a href="">2. Winter</a></li>
                    <li class="menuItem menuItem3"><a href="">3. Tyres</a></li>
                    <li class="menuItem menuItem4"><a href="">4. Offers</a></li>
            </div><!-- .menu -->  

    /* GALLERY */
    section.home-gallery {
        width: 560px;
        overflow: hidden;
        height: 260px;
        float: left;
        margin-left: 29px;        
        border: 1px solid white;
        /*CSS3 Linear Gradient */
        background-image: -moz-linear-gradient(0% 100% 90deg,#E6E7E8, #F1F2F2);
        background-image: -webkit-gradient(linear, 0% 0%, 0% 100%, from(#E6E7E8), to(#F1F2F2));    
        /* CSS3 Box Shadow */
        -moz-box-shadow: 0 0 2px #777;
        -webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 2px #777;
        box-shadow: 0 0 2px #777;
        /*CSS3 Rounded Corners */
        -moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 4px;
        -wenbkit-border-bottom-left-radius: 4px;
        border-bottom-left-radius: 4px;
        -moz-border-radius-bottomright: 4px;
        -wenbkit-border-bottom-right-radius: 4px;
        border-bottom-right-radius: 4px;
    #slides {
        /*This is the slide area*/
        height: 220px;
        /* jQuery changes the width later on to the sum of the widths of all the slides */
        width: 560px;
        overflow: hidden;
    .slide {
        float: left;
    #menu {
        /*This is the slide menu container */
        height: 40px;
    #menu ul {
        margin: 0;
        padding: 0;
    #menu li {
        width: 136px;
        height: 21px;
        padding-top: 7px;
        margin-top: 7px;
        display: inline-block;
        list-style: none;
        text-indent: 20px;
    #menu a {
        font-size: 11px;
        color: #999;
    #menu a:hover {
        font-size: 11px;
        color: #444;
        font-weight: normal;
    #menu li.menuItem2 {
        border-left: 1px solid #BCBCBC;
    #menu li.menuItem3 {
        border-left: 1px solid #BCBCBC;
    #menu li.menuItem4 {
        border-left: 1px solid #BCBCBC;
    #menu li.act, #menu li.act:hover {    
        color: #444;
        font-weight: normal;
    // JavaScript Document
        /* This code is execited after the DOM has been completely loaded */
        var totWidth=0;
        var positions = new Array();
        $('#slides .slide').each(function(i){
            /*Loop through all the slides and store their accumlulative widths in totWidth */
            totWidth += $(this).width();
            /* The positions array contains each slide's commutative offset from the left part of the container */
                alert("Please fill in the width and height for all your images in the gallery!");
                return false;
        /* Change the container DIV's width to the exact width of all the slides combined */
        $('#menu ul li a').click(function(e){
            /* On a menuItem click */
            var pos = $(this).parent().prevAll('.menuItem').length;
            /* Start sliding animation */
            /* Prevent the default action of the link */
        /* On Page load, mark the first menuItem as active */
        $('#menu ul li.menuItem:first').addClass('act').siblings().addClass('inact');

    Many Thanks in advance to anybody who is able to help!
