I'm trying to implement a very simple vertical slide down panel in Wordpress, I've tried jbar (http://tympanus.net/codrops/2009/10/29/jbar-a-jquery-notification-plugin/) and an easy JS method I found in http://jsfiddle.net/ahr3U/

But I still cannot get this implemented, I've tried inserting the below code in the footer.php right before it's close, and within the header.php and still nothing appears.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js">



And CSS:

#notification {
    background-color: #F00;
    color: #FFF;
    height: 25px;
    position: absolute;
    top: -25px;
    width: 100%;
    transition: top 0.5s;
    -moz-transition: top 0.5s;
    -webkit-transition: top 0.5s;
    -o-transition: top 0.5s;

#notification.visible {
    top: 0px;

The HTML CTA via the div, I've tried calling with the <head> and <body>

<div id="notification">Page load complete...</div>

In order to be compatible with other libraries, jQuery loads in "no conflict" mode by default . Try rewriting your code to use the jQuery keyword instead of $.

jQuery(function ($) {

So it's implemented now. BUT, the above the fold area is blank upon page load. When you scroll below the 'above-the-fold' and then scroll back up, the content there appears. Weirdest thing ever. Any ideas? – Arnold Feb 6 '12 at 18:45
I'd have to see the page. – Kyle Feb 6 '12 at 18:49
It was a confliction with other plugins I had implemented apparently, once deactivated - boom. – Arnold Feb 6 '12 at 19:12
