starting up multiple jquery plugins.

starting up multiple jquery plugins.

Hello, this is my first post. i am a newbie at the world of jquery and i have this problem on a web page.
i want to start up two jquery plugins just on header wrapped with a script tag.
the plugins i am using is countdown and anythingslider.
the header script i use is, but for some reason it doesnt work on countdown
another question is the order of the inclusion of scripts affects the script itself???
  1. <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><script type="scripts/javascript" src="scripts/jquery.countdown.js"></script>
    <script type="scripts/javascript" src="scripts/jquery.countdown-es.js"></script>
    <script src="scripts/jquery.anythingslider.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

or i should set different??
and the code on header is:

  1. $(function () {
        until: new Date(2013,03-1,12,12,12,0),
        layout:'{desc}{dn} {dl} : {hn} {hl} : {mn} {ml} : {sn} {sl}',
        description:'<span>FALTAN </span>'});

        startText: "Ver",
        stopText: "Pausa",

as i a just starting i suppose that its not needed to put two different $function
  1. $(function () {
for each plugin... well i dont know if its right or what is happening but the countdown timer doesnt show up.
