Including jQuery in WordPress (The Right Way)

If you want, you can just download jQuery, put it on your server and link to it from your header.php file in the section. But that can cause you grief. For one thing, some plugins use the jQuery library, and they are going to load it as well. This can cause problems. How was your plugin to know you already had it loaded?

Another thing is that WordPress already includes a copy of jQuery. Here is how you can load up jQuery in your theme the smart (and intended) way. Put the following code in your header.php file in the section:

< ?php wp_enqueue_script("jquery"); ?>

< ?php wp_head(); ?>

It finally started. After months of waiting we are joined by a couple of townies from Bristol. Aged 15 Hannah (my niece) and her friend Tamika have joined us to work for 6 weeks. They will be learning a whole new bag of skills and will be building their very own Adirondack chair along with a shed!

Here are some photos of the first day. It was a joy to have them along.
