Nivo slider not working in wordpress jquery


Staff member
I have added nivo slider plugin to wordpress however it doesn't move past the git loading file.I believe the problem is in the way i am loading the jquery.

I have included the javascript jquery.nivo.slider.js file in the js folder inside my theme folder.
In the header.php i am using this inside the head tags:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="<?php bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/bootstrap/js/jquery.nivo.slider.pack.js"></script>
   <script type="text/javascript">
    $(window).load(function() {
   <?php wp_enqueue_script("jquery"); ?>

   <?php wp_head(); ?>

And in the index.php i am using this:

    <div class="container">

    <div class="slider-wrapper theme-default">
    <div class="ribbon"></div>
    <div id="slider" class="nivoSlider">
    <img src="bootstrap/images/screen1.jpg"/>
    <img src="bootstrap/images/screen2.jpg" />
    <img src="bootstrap/images/screen3.jpg"  />
    <img src="bootstrap/images/screen4.jpg"/>

I am not using anything inside the functions.php file.And am using this inside the style.css:

@import url("bootstrap/css/nivo-slider.css");
@import url("bootstrap/css/slider.css");
@import url("bootstrap/css/bootstrap.css");
@import url("bootstrap/themes/default/default.css");

Could you please tell me where i go wrong due to which the git file is appearing and not the images slideshow. When used as index.html it worked as a charm.
