I use the default TwentyTen theme and I have made a child theme with some CSS adjustments, and that's pretty much it.

Now I'd like to do two things

  • Make the theme load the latest jQuery, and to load it using the Google CDN.
  • Add a javascript file which would be loaded on every page.

What's the best way to do that? I'm a total WordPress newb, so don't really know my way around.

Here you go.

add_action('init', 'register_custom_jquery');
function register_custom_jquery() {


add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'add_js_to_page');
function add_js_to_page() {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );

    wp_enqueue_script( 'my-custom-script' );
  • where do I do this?

  • In your theme's functions.php Commented May 28, 2011 at 23:52
  • Aha. Could you just show how you would enqueue a custom script as well? Just want to be sure I get it right...
