I currently have a contact form on my WordPress site. I have date and time inputs, for the date input I'm currently using the "jquery-ui-datepicker" and have it working in the following setup.

In my functions.php

wp_enqueue_style('jquery-style', 'http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.2/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css');

and in my form.php I'm applying the jQuery to my form

<fieldset class="usp-date">
<label for="user-submitted-date"><?php _e('Date of News'); ?></label>
<input name="user-submitted-date" type="text" value="" placeholder="<?php _e('7/4/12'); ?>" required="required" id="MyDate">

The jQuery

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
    dateFormat : 'm-d-y' ,
    minDate: 0


What the best way to apply http://plugins.jquery.com/jt.timepicker/ to my time fieldset

<fieldset class="usp-starttime">
<label for="user-submitted-starttime"><?php _e('Start Time'); ?></label>
<input name="user-submitted-starttime" type="text" value="" placeholder="<?php _e('11:00 am'); ?>">

Download from github, and call the css/js in my functions.php? Then I'm unsure how to call the jQuery in my form.php

I did, as that answer has stated jQuery UI Datepicker is bundled with Wordpress, and I have that working. A jquery/ui TIMEPICKER is not. That's were I'm having trouble correctly using the wp_enqueue_script method. – Mills Jul 31 '13 at 17:25
