I'm trying to load masonry but I'm having no luck, I've managed to load it manually but then I realised it was included in the wordpress core, so I thought oh that's handy.

I have it enqueue' (I really hate that word) like this:

function lart_front_end_scripts() {
            if (is_admin()) return;
            wp_enqueue_script('jquery', '1.10.2' );
            wp_enqueue_script('jquery-masonry', array('jquery'));
        }//End add_scripts

add_action('wp_print_scripts', array(&$this,'lart_front_end_scripts'));

Other jquery is loaded like normal, but I keep getting "masonry has no method" in the console and it's clearly not being loaded because of its absence under network - scripts console.

Help much appreciated.

Edit: I've updated my code to use enqueue_script instead of print_script.

function masonry() {
}//End add_scripts

add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', array(&$this, 'masonry'));

Still no dice.

  • In your duplicate Q, you say this works on TwentyEleven but not in your theme. What theme is this and what does it has in its functions.php that would produce this?

  • @brasofilo Yes I have wp_head(); in my header

  • We're not seeing the full context of your code. Are you actually inside of a class? Where is other jquery being "loaded like normal"? Inside this callback, or elsewhere? Oct 24, 2013 at 22:53

Okay, so I made Underscore and Masonry a Dependency of another script and then it worked.

I stopped trying to enqueue add action core scripts and just set it as a dependency for the script that needed it.

Now, I'm not entirely sure if that is how it's supposed to work, I thought you still had to enqueue add action the script before you could set it as a dependency, the advantage of core scripts was that you just didn't have to register it.

So without enqueue add action'

wp_enqueue_script('homeJS', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/home.js', array('jquery','underscore','jquery-masonry') );

Now all of of my required scripts work.

To clarify, only homeJS is being enqueue' with:

function enqueue_script(){ if(is_admin()) return; wp_enqueue_script()...... }

Jquery, Masonry and other core scripts have not been enqueued this way.

  • Could you explain the solution in more detail and perhaps post the code your used?

wp_print_scripts should not be used to enqueue styles or scripts on the front page. Use wp_enqueue_scripts instead.

Just use wp_enqueue_scripts:

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'myScripts');
function myScripts (){
    wp_enqueue_script('jquery', '1.10.2' );
    wp_enqueue_script('jquery-masonry', array('jquery'));

Masonry is bundled with and already registered by WordPress.

All you have to do, is to enqueue it:

function lart_front_end_scripts() {
} // function lart_front_end_scripts
add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', array($this, 'lart_front_end_scripts'));
  • Hi, I've updated my question and it's still not working :/

  • Yes to all the above, the function is in a class, jquery is loaded and all of my other scripts I've enqueued the same way are working. I also had trouble with with enqueue' underscore.js and ended up using a cdn instead.

  • Also it's wp_enqueue_scripts with the "s" at the end right? as in add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts')

  • The action hook is named wp_enqueue_scripts and the function is named wp_enqueue_script.

  • Ah yes, thought so, but I got nothing yet. I'll try enqueue' some other core wordpress stuff.
