Previous Slide Error


Here is the code for the assignment. It keeps giving me a "remember to fade out currentslide" error but as far as i know everything is in there correctly. am I missing something?

var main = function() {

$('.arrow-next').click(function() {
    var currentSlide = $('.activ-slide');
    var nextSlide =;

    var currentDot = $('.active-dot');
    var nextDot =;

    if(nextSlide.length == 0) {
        nextSlide = $('.slide').first();
    if(nextDot.length == 0) {
        nextDot = $('.dot').first();



$('.arrow-prev').click(function() {
    var currentSlide = $('.active-slide');
    var prevSlide = currentSlide.prev();

    if(prevSlide.length == 0) {
        prevSlide = $('.slide').last();





+++++ addClass removeClass

Every HTML-Element has so called attributes.
One of the possible attributes, is the class-attribute.

If you write the HTML-document, you add the class-attribute
within the Element-Tag by using the syntax
class-keyword = then a string
containing the class-name
OR mutliple class-names which are =separated=from=eachother= by a space

Thus with

 <div class="myClass1 myClass2 myClass3" ></div>

you now have a DIV-Element carrying 3 classes myClass1, myClass2 and myClass3

As part of its CSS-category-of-Methods jQuery gives you the ability
to manipulate this class-attribute
by providing the addClass()-, removeClass()-, toggleClass()-Methods.
You will have to provide the Method at least 1 argument
which is the string VALUE of the class-name.
Thus you have to change

The confusion when to use a pre-pending dot or NOT...
In the Cascading Style Sheet syntax,
you have to prepend-a-dot to the classname
so the CSS will interpret it as a class-attribute
So in the file style.css you will find an object
identified by .current,
In this .current object
the background property-key is set to a particular VALUE

jQuery uses the same syntax to identify a class-attribute
like in the jQuery-selector
$(".current") by which this HTML-Element and all it's CHILDREN
are selected into a jQuery-object,

This parent-HTML-Element carries the class-attribute with class-name "current"
