Disappearing JavaScript (2 posts)

    I've created an external javascript file (xxx.js) so that I can use javascript on some of my pages. I put the link into the header.php file like the codex says and uploaded the file. I used

    <script src="absolute_path"/xxx.js"></script>

    The call I used was

    onchange="hideFld()" (with the <SELECT> tag)

    It is used on a FORM. (I am using Matt Wright's FormMail.pl to process my forms) When I test it on the page at http://www.tracyandcarol.com/the_tracy_times/why_im_blogging/contact_us/, it does not work. When I go into the page's HTML the call is not there anymore.

    I've verified that the code works by linking the external file to a regular HTML page.

    Can anybody tell me where I am going wrong?

    using form HTML code can be problematic in WP posts. If this is just one page you need the form on, I suggest using a custom page template. Enter the form code and javascript onchange in the PHP file of the custom template rather than in the WP post
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Pages#Creating_Your_Own_Page_Templates

    In that file you can enter any code you care to.
