Google Chrome doesn't load my javascript files

Google Chrome doesn't load my javascript files

Google Chrome doesn't load my javascript files

This problem only exists when I run my site in Google Chrome. Either from my cellphone or my PC.

I have the following line in my <head> section. All of my .js files are stored in the javascripts folder:

<SCRIPT type = "text/javascript" src = "javascripts/common.js" ></SCRIPT>

Google chrome will not load the file!

So, I copied the common.js file into my website's home directory and renamed it to local_common.js.

I then changed my script load to this (no folder designation):

<SCRIPT type = "text/javascript" src = "local_common.js" ></SCRIPT>

And it works!!


Thanks in advance,

Jerry Scannell

RE: Google Chrome doesn't load my javascript files

Holy crap. I think I figured it out. Since when is script loading case-sensitive??? The "javascripts" folder is actually "JavaScripts". On a whim, I changed my command load to:

<SCRIPT type = "text/javascript" src = "JavaScripts/common.js" ></SCRIPT>

and now it works. WTF!!!
