I am trying to make may own Wordpress theme. I want the scenario of blogpost lost DIVs blocks are equal in rows. I am using very cool JQuery tutorial from CSS-Tricks to make it happens. Here is the tutorial http://css-tricks.com/equal-height-blocks-in-rows/

I am enqueuing JQuery/JS in functions.php as follows :

// Load jQuery 
if ( !is_admin() ) { 
    false); wp_enqueue_script('jquery'); 
// Load Equal Height .js 
function my_equal_height() 
    wp_register_script('custom_script', get_template_directory_uri() .
    '/scripts/equalheight.js', array('jquery'), '1.0' );
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_equal_height');

But the result only works if I omit <?php wp_footer(); ?>. As we know that, it is not recommended to omit <?php wp_footer(); ?> while developing Wordpress theme.

Could somebody help me to solve this problem?

Any responds and helps will highly appreciated.

You were really close, I think these fixes should point you in the right direction. I went through and addressed some of your syntax issues and your conditional hooks. Hopefully this will get you rolling in the right direction.

// Load 'Working' jQuery 
add_action( 'init', 'jquery_register' );
// register from google and for footer
function jquery_register() {

    if ( is_admin() )

    wp_deregister_script( 'jquery' );
    wp_register_script( 'jquery', 'https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.7.1/jquery.min.js', false, null, true );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );

// Try this Equal height: 
function my_equal_height() { 
    wp_enqueue_script( 'equal_height', get_template_directory_uri().'/scripts/equalheight.js', 'jquery', null, true );
add_action( 'wp_head', 'my_equal_height' );

Let me know how this solution works for you :)

Thank you for quickly responding my question, David. I followed your stuff. It is very useful for me. The solution you give to me is 100% works. :) – Kharis Blank Mar 24 '12 at 10:57
Perfect Kharis, I'm glad that helped sort out your problems. – David Mar 24 '12 at 12:08
@KharisBlank You should then accept it as solution and maybe upvote the answer if it was written well. – kaiser Mar 24 '12 at 14:29
@David Btw: Core has jQuery 1.7.1, so you're using a jQuery version that probably will break stuff and also deny the use of many new functions like on(). – kaiser Mar 24 '12 at 14:30
Edited minor stuff. – kaiser Mar 25 '12 at 9:38
