Javascript files not being loaded (1 post)

    Hi all,

    I am trying to load my JavaScript files in the footer of my page but having difficulty doing so.

    I have the following function in my functions.php file but JQuery always gets loaded in the header even though I've set the in_footer flag to true.

    function load_jquery() {
    	if (!is_admin()) {
    		wp_deregister_script('jquery');
    		// load the Google API copy in the footer
    		wp_register_script('jquery', 'https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js', array(), '1.5.1', true);
    		wp_enqueue_script('jquery', 'https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5.1/jquery.min.js', array(), '1.5.1', true);
    	}
    }
    add_action('init', 'load_jquery');

    I have another function to load a plug in, this one does not get loaded at all;

    function load_myscript() {
    	if ( !is_admin() ) { // instruction to only load if it is not the admin area
       		// register your script location, dependencies and version
       		wp_register_script('myscript', get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/js/myscript.js');
       		// enqueue the script
       		wp_enqueue_script('myscript', get_bloginfo('template_directory') . '/js/myscript.js', array(), false, true);
    }
    add_action('init', 'load_myscript');
    }

    I've spent a lot of time trying to figure this out, I have the wp_footer() and wp_head() calls in the right places. I've read up on wp_register_script and wp_enqueue_script but did not find anything to help.

    Sincerely appreciate any help.

    Sid.
