I switced my style sheet for the one used in the example, and it almost works! It seems like I'm very close... The example is here: https://www.jqueryscript.net/slideshow/Simple-Fully-Controllable-Content-Slideshow-Plugin-For-jQuery.html Look at view source for their example vs. view source for mine...etc. ...08/16/18, I don't think the actual "function()" script is running...because the counter doesn't show up in my version.
