    I’m a non-english (so sorry for mistakes) noob that is trying to create his first WordPress theme.
    I’m trying to create a featured post slider similar to that one in this Web site.

    I’m following this page.

    In the header.php of my WordPress theme, before <?php wp_head(); ?> I wrote this


    and I put the file jquery-1.4.2.min.js in the main directory of the theme.

    In the index.php I wrote this:

    After <?php get_header(); ?> I wrote this code to make the tabs:


    The problem is that this doesn’t work at all. What’s wrong?
    Please help me!

    Thank you in advance and bye!

    Try this.


    If red borders appear around every div, then you know jquery is loading, if it isn’t make sure it is loaded properly.
    If red borders appear around everything (jQuery has loaded properly) then make sure your tabs.plugin is loading properly. Check file path, etc.
