Default Spry Menu Not Displaying External Javascripts

Hi all,

Sorry for sounding daft, but I'm pretty new to coding.

I wish to place the few javascript functions that I use on my website into one external file. I've read this is better practice as I initially placed them all on each webpage.

The external javascript file looks like this:

<script src="SpryAssets/SpryMenuBar.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

var _gaq = _gaq || [];
_gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-20927289-1']);

(function() {
var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.magnifier.js">

* jQuery Image Magnify- (c) Dynamic Drive DHTML code library (www.dynamicdrive.com)
* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use
* Visit Dynamic Drive at http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for this script and 100s more


<script type="text/javascript">
var MenuBar1 = new Spry.Widget.MenuBar("MenuBar1", {imgDown:"SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarDownHover.gif", imgRight:"SpryAssets/SpryMenuBarRightHover.gif"});

<!-- Begin Web-Stat code 2.0 http -->
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://server4.web-stat.com/wtslog.pl?al230354,3"></script>
<!-- End Web-Stat code v 2.0 -->

I just cut and pasted each snippet of javascript out of the page and placed it in a separate file which I named javascript.js

As you can imagine, there are syntax errors flying up with the code.

I placed this snippet on the main webpage in order to link to the external js code:

<script type="text/javascript" src="javascript.js"></script>

The spry drop down menus ceased working so for now I have pasted the two relevant spry scripts back on to the page.

Ultimately, I wish to have all the scripts on their own external page.

My website is www.itsamodthing.com

Any help would be greatly appreciated by this newbie.

If you combine javascript files, then you must not include <script type="text/javascript" src="somejavascriptfile.js"></script> tags in your combined file. Just copy only the content of those files and paste that in your combined file.
