JavaScript Build an Interactive Website jQuery Plugins Responsive Slider Plugin - CSS

jQuery Plugins stage is out of date

The code in it doesn't seem to work anymore on current browsers with current versions of jQuery. I tried it in Chrome 33, Firefox 27, and IE 11 on a Windows 7 machine.

At first I thought I was doing something wrong but when I opened the completed version of the file provided with the last video, it still doesn't work in any of the browsers.

The article elements don't show up so there is only a blank space where the slider is supposed to be. When I open the developer tools, I can see that the javascript is running and changing the margins and doing some other things, but none of that is shown on the screen because all the relevant elements are invisible or not being rendered or something like that.

This may be why Treehouse is adding a new jQuery course and new JavaScript course. I believe the jQuery course will replace the old content.


That seems like a major problem especially since there are lots of other sliders out there that are free and still work when the page gets refreshed.

You'll get no argument from me.
