    Question JQuery function error

    Hi there,

    I am very new to JQuery and found a great function that adds days to a date. Here is the link to the working Jfiddle example

    Edit fiddle - JSFiddle

    I took this code so that I could test it locally but it will not function. The error I am getting is

    SCRIPT5009: '$' is undefined test.html (19,1)
    SCRIPT7002: XMLHttpRequest: Network Error 0x3, The system cannot find the path specified.

    Here is the source that I took from the Jfiddle example

    Any advice on this would be really helpful as I have been chasing my tail for a while now.

    Thanks for looking.

    That means you failed to load the jQuery library.

    If what you pasted is exactly what you have in your test file then the script tag is there, so the import would have failed for some other reason such as no internet connection or being blocked by a filter.
