I just installed FirePHP to help with debugging in WP, but for some reason all it shows is ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined.

I have some jquery stuff on the page that seems to be working just fine. I have no clue how to figure out why this error message is coming up - can anyone help me??

not without seeing the issue in context. – Milo Jan 3 '14 at 15:36
What kind of context? Here's the page I see it on: goinspire.com/trip-registration/… – user3515 Jan 3 '14 at 15:38
look at your page source, you have some code referencing the jquery object in head before the jquery script is embedded. – Milo Jan 3 '14 at 15:43
I looked at the source code, but don't how it's compiled/where it came from. This is a WP website that I inherited. How can I find what needs to be changed? – user3515 Jan 3 '14 at 15:47
start by looking in the theme's header.php – Milo Jan 3 '14 at 15:57
