The forums ran from 2008-2020 and are now closed and viewable here as an archive.
I thought this was going to relatively easy to answer but there seems like theres so many conflicting reports as to which is the best way to firstly use jQuery and then your own scripts afterwards.
Chris has a version on this website, then I’ve been on stack overflow and they seem to recommend that you use the version that comes with WordPress.
So my questions are:
A. Which is the best method?
Should I use the code that Chris lists on this page?
[CSS Tricks Code…](https://css-tricks.com/snippets/wordpress/include-jquery-in-wordpress-theme/ “CSS Tricks Code”)
B. Is it better to use the version that comes with WP even though its an older version?
C. Normally you would load just before close of body but for the case of plugins is it best to load in the head?
E. Whats the best way of using my own script once I have jQuery working?
