This code requires several JS components to operate and demonstrate the issue. You can make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here to facilitate analysis.

There's not enough code included to replicate the issue, but at first glance it appears that the braces needed to define the argument to slick as an object literal are missing. Perhaps this might resolve the issue:

      $('.slides').slick({  // brace added
        fade: true,
        autoplay: true,
        arrows: false,
        dots: true
      });                   // brace added

Thanks steven after adding the braces it works fine. I will also add the link to workspace. https://teamtreehouse.com/workspaces/31217432.

For future reference, that's a direct URL to your workspace, it's temporary and only exists while you are using it.

But you can use the snapshot function in the workspace and provide the link to that for sharing.
