So I'm using Starkers to base my next WP theme on and I've run into a small issue, I was including my own version of jQuery in the
header.php file but when inspecting my site using Firebug I noticed jquery was being downloaded twice, I did a bit of digging and noticed that not only was I including the file but so was the
In trying to fix the problem I noticed a comment in the header file, of which originated came from the Twenty Ten theme:
/* Always have wp_head() just before the closing </head> * tag of your theme, or you will break many plugins, which * generally use this hook to add elements to <head>, such * as styles, scripts, and meta tags */
So here's my problem, I am under the impression that the jQuery file has to be set before any other file that wants to use it and that
wp_head() should be the last thing in the
<head> element, I'm slightly confused now as I'm wondering should I put
wp_head() at the top so the WP included jQuery file will be used for all my plugins, even though it says not to do so.
I did comment out the jQuery line in the
wp_head() function but it's required for the admin page so I had to put it back.
I'd also like to use (at least experiment) with using the Google CDN version of jQuery, but don't want to include it twice!
