I'm including a jquery script in using the wp_enqueue_script
wp_enqueue_script('custom', get_template_directory_uri() . '/scripts/custom.js', array('jquery'));
Since I'm not specifying the version, its automatically adding the current wordpress version number and i can see the source of the webpage as:
There's a weird problem, the script is not being included. If I copy the js file url in address bar including the version number, it says page is not found. However, If I remove ending 1 in the version (ie.
custom.js?ver=3.4), or add any other number like 3.4.2 then it will work.
I understand that I can specify the version number in the wp_enqueue_script, but I want to know why this is causing problem? I have couple of other js files also which have automatically added 3.4.1. but they work fine.
