I have seen this posted a few times but nothing I read helped me so here I am creating my own.

I have a slide show using JQuerry also a sliding category that is utilizing JavaScript on the same page. Both work fine by them selves, but when I call the slide show on the main page, the category slide down no longer works on that page. I have no idea why they are interfering as JavaScript is not me forte yet. If anyone can take a look and let me know what the issue is and if there is a way to fix it! Thanks in advance!
