I have been having this issue with my site where some of the scripts that I am putting into the site are not working and others are. The site is fully functional on one setup and fails on another even though it's the same code. I have 4 calls to different scripts in the header of my site. slider, custom animation, pagination, and some tools. I found the slider works fine but the next thing is broken. I can remove the slider and another section will start working. It's bizarre.
I have been doing some reading and decided to try and do it "The right way". I am calling all the scripts from the functions.php file using register script and then enqueue. I can see them all in the header when I view source and all the files are linked correctly. Knowing that WordPress includes jquery, I removed my jquery script that does allow things to work and just added this to the functions
i can see the script in the view source and that it is linked up correctly, but even will all other scripts removed accept the slider. The slider still don't work. So here is my simple little test that is suppose to have been done the right way,
wp_equeue_script('jquery'); //this in in functions.php
//in the header of my site, I am calling the slider
from my reading.. This should work but does not. Only if I include the jquery script which I am not suppose to half to do does it start working. What am I doing wrong?
