I am fairly new to WP, so I apologize for this very basic question, but I am working on a site that has an older version of jQuery showing up.

Here is the jQuery reference I have placed in the header, which appears on line 20 of the source code:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.0/jquery.min.js"></script>

But on line 39 of the source code I see the following:

<script type='text/javascript' src='http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4/jquery.min.js?ver=3.8.1'></script>

I have searched the files and I cannot see where this reference is coming from. I need to get rid of it and could therefore use some guidance on tracking it down. Thanks.

    Is line 39 still located in the header? If 'Yes' check header.php for the file, Found it? 'No' -> check functions.php and look for an enquque_script function. Found it? 'No' -> try disabling all your plugins. These are the 3 things I would check. – Howdy_McGee Mar 14 '14 at 14:18
  • Hi Howdy_McGee, it was in the functions.php file. Please promote your comment to an answer so I can give you credit. Thank you! – fmz Mar 14 '14 at 14:24
