I get nothing. To further complicate matters, I am planning on using jQuery for this task, specifically the plugin called Supersized. I created a page called "supersized.php" and loaded that independent of WP for testing, and it works flawlessly. However, I added the snippet:
into my custom template page and the CSS functions properly but none of the images load. I am just getting back into WP, and don't know much PHP, but I am rather comfortable with CSS and HTML. It seems to me there is conflict with WP and using <img src/> tags. Can anyone confirm or deny this?
Also, I am testing locally so unfortunately I can't provide a link for viewing. I can provide additional code or try to explain my process better if needed.
I am running WP 2.8.1 with the Corporate Sandbox theme.
