I have a plugin adding a custom meta box to the comments editing page:

function on_admin_init() {
__( 'Voto recensione', FB_DT_TEXTDOMAIN ),
array( &$this, 'meta_box_voto' ),
'comment', 'normal', 'high'
function meta_box_voto($data) {
jQuery(document).ready(function() {     
} ...

But the alert is called twice! Is this a WP or jQuery bug? Am I making any mistake?


P.S. If I put the alert into the first function it is only called once...

Put the JS in the admin_footer. If the Widgets are moved, your JS tag code can be duplicated hence called twice.
