jquery and WordPress
# June 9, 2009 at 2:59 pm
I have been trying to get jquery to work on my custom worpdress theme and i cant get it to work..
I know you have to use the wp_enqueue_script() to call the jquery library and to replace the $()”, with jQuery() .
Im trying to get an image slider to show some of my work on and it just wont work..
Anyone have any ideas? Or any good sites with info/tutorials on?

Maybe i’m wrong but as far as i know jQuery is already "included" bij WordPress so it’s already declared.
I had problems with a slider jquery library. And I solved it by putting the wp_enqueue_script in the header just before wp_head and the script itself just below wp_head.
I have no idea why but that was the only way i got it working# June 13, 2009 at 12:52 pm
I always use the google hosted version of jQuery.
Here is a screencast about building a jQuery slider into WordPress http://blog.themeforest.net/wordpress/wordpress-for-designers-day-15/# September 23, 2009 at 5:03 pm
I had a problem getting a smooth scroll effect using jQuery to work, and eventually found a fix that worked:Code:jQuery.noConflict();
// Put all your code in your document ready area
// Do jQuery stuff using $
Whereas $.localScroll() and $.localScroll.hash() activate the scrolly effect everywhere on the page.
However I think .noConflict() can cause some conflicts with other libraries with $ object models, so be careful! If someone could enlighten me to why that is or if there’s a better way than .noConflict(), let me know at http://twitter.com/WebDojo.
So in the end I used a plugin called HeadSpace to include my localScroll and scrollTo files, and a last file I named smooth-scroll-activate.js that included the code you see above.
And voila! Drunken pirate coding.
