Custom Scrollbar - flexcroll (4 posts)

    Hi there! Hope someone can help me out - I am new to using WordPress and am trying to bring a former site into the WordPress templates. I have had great success so far but with one big hang up. The old site uses flexcroll.js with custom css to create a custom scroll bar for the main content area.

    I have tried many different ways to include the script into my header.php file of the theme. With the former html document it could just be added in with the basic
    <script type='text/javascript' src="flexcroll.js"></script>

    Through wordpress I have tried this basic script add as well as <?php wp_enqueue_script(‘flexcroll’, 'myurlpath/flexcroll.js); ?>

    Nothing seems to be working and I have been trying to search forums and things for hours. Has anyone else had success using flexcroll with WordPress who can help me, or anyone who just knows what I am doing wrong?

    The content that needs to be scrolled is found on various pages in the pageContentText div, and my page.php is pretty basic:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <div id="welcome">
           		<div id="pageContent">
                	<div id="pageContentText">
    <?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>
    <?php the_content(__('(more...)')); ?>
    <?php endwhile; else: ?>
    <p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p>
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    I am also running lightbox-plus and add-lightbox plugins in case those are making a difference?

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    to include: put the js and css files in the same directory like your style.css and try in your header
    <link href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/flexcrollstyles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
    <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_directory'); ?>/flexcroll.js"></script>

    works fine at my site...

    how do i add a file to my stylesheet directory?

    there is no upload function.

    i have tried pointing both to an external directory on my server but with the relevent files but it doesn't seem to pick either up.

    I'm using it in conjunction with an Iframe

    Would that be why?
