    Hi I am new here to JavaScript, and I just started learning I use WordPress to create my websites. I created a javascript file called my script, then Put that script tag into my index.php of parent theme then added javascript file to wordpress child theme but that Javascipt file is not working ? I tested it by trying to change the color of a new div I added by using the document.getElementById("Myscript").style.backgroundColor = "#f0a" —- But nothing is showing so I assume the index.php file script was not activated correctly ?

    Any help would be great , thank you

    Ok so inside my parent themes index.php file (ill paste the last couple of lines) at the very end there is :

    </div> <!-- #main -->
            </div> <!-- #main-container -->
    <?php get_footer(); ?>
    <script src="myscript.js"></script>

    Inside one of my pages to test if the javascript file I added was working, I put:

    <div id="myDiv">
    words sdfdsf dfs fdsf fds

    My java script file thats in my child theme ( named myscript.js) I put :

    document.getElementById('myDiv').style.background = "black";
