JQuery is not working in wordpress – Solution 2 comments

Recently i have seen some error in jQuery on WordPress 3.2.1.
Inside theme folder on header.php if i add

$(document).ready(function(){ alert(‘Pragnesh Karia’); });

Woilaa…..No alert found.
I have searched on google i found error was due to ‘$’.


That’s it.

In WordPress, the$() syntax is always used by other scripting library(Like prototype etc ), and causing the conflict issue and fail to call the jQuery function. You should use jQuery() instead…


Alternatively, you can use noConflict() …


// Use jQuery via $j(...)
