However, IE9 and up, it's not working at all. I don't know anything about JS so I'm at a loss as to what the problem is or what could be causing it. I tried contacting the original creator of the JS code at CoolWebDeveloper, but his last post was in 2009 so I'm not expecting much back on that.
The owners of the site use IE9, and IE exclusively for that matter, so they think that the slideshow isn't working ever for anyone coming to the site and are very anxious to get it fixed. I've read that IE9 reads and interprets Java differently than older browsers but with my non-JS knowledge, that doesn't help me much.
I don't want to post the entire code, as guidelines suggested I not, but I don't know what part of or where in the code the problem is coming from. The site is:
Your js file slider.js has 3 lines of codes (first 3 lines) which are wrong
<!-----------To download a fresh copy of code, and for more code downloads and content --------->
<!-----------please visit www.coolwebdeveloper.com-------->
1. You can not load an external js file from within another js file
Furthermore, in your main HTML document:

The problem has been fixed, and thanks for the help but no one asked for your opinion. I am a professional and knowing JS was not (and is not) part of the job description and the problem was that the past developer had put something in that did not work and was no longer valid on newer versions of most browsers. We fixed that and have something that works even better.
As for "settling down into the job", I've been here half a year and have been hired on permanent and full-time and have also taken over their other website, so apparently knowing HTML and CSS - which is all that we need for these sites - appears to be just fine for my employers (as I knew it was - I told them what I knew and what I didn't when I was hired, btw).

Once you have posted a problem in a Forum, you have asked for an opinion. My opinion, others' opinion, it does not matter.
On the other hand, when you say "I don't know anything about ...", you give yourself no chances to get a solution. Either you know at least the basis of a language, or you ask a friend or an employee for a solve.
I don't know why - but I totally agree with Kor's "opinion".
