Hi guys,
I am trying to implement my first carousel on my website. I have 5 images with the same dimensions with the following HTML markup:

  <div id="myCarousel" class="carousel slide">

         <ol class="carousel-indicators">
             <li data-target="#myCarousel" data-slide-to="0" class="active"></li>
             <li data-target="#myCarousel" data-slide-to="1"></li>
             <li data-target="#myCarousel" data-slide-to="2"></li>
             <li data-target="#myCarousel" data-slide-to="3"></li>
             <li data-target="#myCarousel" data-slide-to="4"></li>
             <li data-target="#myCarousel" data-slide-to="5"></li>
         </ol>
         <div class="carousel-inner">
             <div class="item active"> 
                    <img src="/pictures/home1.jpg" alt="CASHS" >
             </div>
             <div class="item"> 
                    <img   src="/pictures/home4.jpg" alt="SWAROVSKI">
             </div>
             <div class="item"> 
                    <img   src="/pictures/home2.jpg" alt="MARQUIS" >
             </div>
             <div class="item"> 
                    <img   src="/pictures/home3.jpg" alt="ORREFORS" >
             </div>
             <div class="item"> 
                    <img   src="/pictures/home5.jpg" alt="WATERFORD" >
             </div>
         </div>
         <a class="left carousel-control" href="#myCarousel" data-slide="prev">
             <span class="glypicon glypicon-cheveron-left"></span>
         </a>
          <a class="right carousel-control" href="#myCarousel" data-slide="next">
             <span class="glypicon glypicon-cheveron-right"></span>
         </a>


     </div>

I know that I have to actually call this and include the some additional librairies. Therefore, I included the following code:

 <script type='text/javascript' src="/bootstrap.js"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" src="/functions.js"></script>
 <script>
     //starts the carousel
 $('#myCarousel').carousel();
</script>

I inserted the above in the <head> portion of my home.html page. All that shows up on the page is the five images and the numbers 1 to 5. I am including the link to my website which is only intended for educational purposes. So please if anyone can help I would sure appreciate it.

OK there are more than a few issues here, mainly there was not a bootstrap css file called onto the page. I think this will fix your problem:

<!DOCTYPE html> 
<head> 
<meta charset="UTF-8">
    <title>Alla's Crystal Shop</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/main.css">


    <script>
    var brow=checkIEBrowser();
    if(brow == true)
     {
         //User is using …

use

http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js

instead of //ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.2/jquery.min.js
try this and let me know

Another issue you may have is that you are not puting your content inside a "container" or "row". I would look into using these and the .col- system to make a responsive design.

I have worked on it since I posted this question. I will post an update shortly. Thanks for the help.

Ok I modified the recommended changes and the carousel is still not working even after adding the correct files.

 <script type='text/javascript' src="/css/bootstrap.css"></script>
 <script type="text/javascript" src="/js/bootstrap-carousel.js"></script>
  <script type="text/javascript" src="/functions.js"></script>

 <script type="text/javascript">
     //starts the carousel
     $document.ready(function () {
         $('#myCarousel').carousel();
     });
</script>

    <script>
    var brow=checkIEBrowser();
    if(brow == true)
     {
         //User is using a Internet Explorer, need to redirect them.
         window.location.href="http://www.allasalah/view/error.php";
     } 
    else if(checkFFBrowser())

          <a class="arousel-control right" href="#myCarousel" data-slide="next">
             <span class="glypicon glypicon-cheveron-right"></span>
         </a>


     </div>

Can anyone tell me why the carousel is still not working.
Thanks for any suggestions/advice.

No it didn't work. I do not understand why? Is it possibly the browser? to be honset, I overlooked that missing "http:" part. Good catch though

in bootstrap 4 replace the class item with carousel-item in the repeated div

<div class="item">
