I am trying to get this plugin to work (http://wordpress.org/plugins/prettyphoto/), and there is a reference to:

Make sure that your theme is WordPress header and footer tag enabled otherwise this plugin won't work.

I don't understand what is meant by 'header and footer tag enabled'.

I would assume that the Plugin developer means that you should ensure that your Theme calls the wp_head() (normally output in header.php) and wp_footer() (normally output in footer.php) template tags, used to output scripts and stylesheets in the document head and foot.


I am pretty sure it means that your theme needs to use wp_head() and wp_footer(), both of which are involved in printing scripts to the page.
