jQuery & wp-enqueue-script not playing nicely (2 posts)

    Child theme of twentyeleven

    Hi im trying to make this bit of jQuery work on my page, mainly to understand how to get jQuery working in a WordPress child theme.

    So far I have come across nothing but brick walls after trying several thousand different combinations of the wp-enqueue-script.

    Here is a link to the code in my header. http://pastebin.com/ve4Ymv7Q

    All it is, is a little script to make links fade in or out when hovered over. What i would love to know is, am i calling it properly?

    I have a blank functions.php file with just the wp_enqueue_script('jquery'); and a script to limit excerpt lengths.

    I tried putting the .js files in my child's js folder and in the
    h**p://my_domain/wp-includes/js/jquery/my_plugin folder.

    I am running around n circles not knowing wether i`m just getting one bit of code wrong, a backslash here or a brace there??

    Here is the script: http://pastebin.com/mh6dN77b

    Tried taking the "$" and replacing with "jQuery" in the script to no avail.

    The only other thing i can think of is that some CSS rule is overwriting the script. Whatever it is i am blind to it.

    Please help. I never ran into any of this when dropping jQuery into static sites. Just want to understand how WP implements jQuery and to understand best practice going forward

    Regards

    Marcus
