    I’m having a problem getting lavalamp to work in WP. I’ve seen other issues with lavalamp and WP, but I can’t find anything about my issue, and I’ve been pulling my hair out for a couple of days. I’m very new to jQuery and fairly new to WP, so I’m sure I’m just missing something. I was able to get lavalamp to run correctly on my hosted site ( ) as a simple HTML/CSS file, but when I move it into WordPress ( ) I lose the moving background. My folder structure is identical in both places, and all the supporting files are in their correct folders. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.


    I thought I would throw my code up here, and hope someone see’s an obvious flaw. The code below is my header.php file at .




    The code below is my CSS file.

    /* Styles for the entire LavaLamp menu */
    .lavaLamp {
    position: relative;
    height: 29px; width: 421px;
    background: url(“images/bg.gif”) no-repeat top;
    padding: 15px; margin: 10px 0;
    overflow: hidden;
    /* Force the list to flow horizontally */
    .lavaLamp li {
    float: left;
    list-style: none;
    /* Represents the background of the highlighted menu-item. */
    .lavaLamp li.back {
    /*background: url(“images/lava.gif”) no-repeat right -30px;*/

    width: 9px; height: 30px;
    z-index: 8;
    position: absolute;
    .lavaLamp li.back .left {
    /*background: url(“images/lava.gif”) no-repeat top left;*/
    background-color: #000000;
    height: 30px;
    /*margin-right: 9px;*/
    /* Styles for each menu-item. */
    .lavaLamp li a {
    position: relative; overflow: hidden;
    text-decoration: none;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    font: bold 14px arial;
    color: #fff; outline: none;
    text-align: center;
    height: 30px; top: 7px;
    z-index: 10; letter-spacing: 0;
    float: left; display: block;
    margin: auto 10px;

    Both of these are identical to the index.html and CSS I have running on (except for the php fluff at the top of the header file.)
