I have a custom jquery file, here is code:

/* Custom JS */
    jQuery("#top-menu li:first-child a").addClass('selected');

And here my code to load js file in functions.php

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'load_custom_scripts');

function load_custom_scripts(){
    wp_enqueue_script('custom_script', THEMEROOT.'/js/custom.js', array('jquery'), true);

But when i check with firebug, my js not found. Hope anyone tell me what's wrong in my code?

Run following in your terminal:

chmod 0644 /path/to/your/theme/js/common.js

This command has to give your file proper rights and your web server will be able to read it.

  • Do you use Windows? You need to check your file permissions. Oct 1, 2013 at 8:49
