I want to add external JavaScript link in the custom post template. I am adding the below function in the child theme. But the external link is not loaded in the custom post theme. Am I doing something wrong ? TIA

function temp_enqueue_scripts() {
        if ( 'custom-template.php' == get_page_template() ) {
            wp_enqueue_script('script0', 'lib/myscript.js', array('jquery'));
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'temp_enqueue_scripts' );

Add The following code (in your theme's functions.php) will register your script, and set jQuery as a dependency. So when you enqueue it, jQuery will also be enqueued.

function my_scripts_method() {
   // register your script location, dependencies and version
       get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/custom_script.js',
       '1.0' );


add_action('wp_enqueue_scripts', 'my_scripts_method');

You can then enqueue your script one of two ways. In your theme's functions.php you can use the template_include filter the get the template being used using is_page_template()

function my_load_script_for_template( $template ){

return $template;
 add_filter( 'template_include', 'my_load_script_for_template', 1000 );
