Trying to insert both of these arrays of random quotes on the same page so that both show at the same time. I realize I have to rename some of the elements within, but apparently I have no clue which. I've tried giving each rannum, ShowText, and RndText a number behind it, but that didn't work. I'm sure there's just something small I'm missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You've named both arrays the same - 'textarray'. The second instance effectively deletes the first/original array.

Change one of the names in the 'var' declaration, and update the corresponding JavaScript code that refers to the array with the new second name.

0

So I've updated the "textarray" portions to "textarray2", but one of the arrays still won't show. Did I alter too many elements, perhaps? I basically put a 2 or a 3 behind each of the following: rannum, ShowText, RndText, and now textarray. All of those seemed like arbitrary names that could be adjusted, but let me know if any of those are words needed to make the script actually function. Thank you.
