    You can add custom jQuery code via the Plugin but this is designed for fairly short and simple jQuery commands.

    If you have a long set of jQuery commands, or a whole Plugin you will probably want to keep it contained in a separate file. In this case you can enqueue it to add it to your WP site header via a simple WP Plugin of your own, or by adding code to the current theme (preferably via a child theme).

    Well, then I guess at this point I should share with you what I’m trying to accomplish and what I’ve done thus far.

    First of all, what I want to accomplish specifically. I DESPERATELY want to install a jquery plugin called Megafolio ( here’s a link – ). In order to add images, change settings, etc for the plugin, I need to load the plugin controls into the wp dashboard. So far, I’ve managed to create a init.php file for my (hopeful) adaptation of the plugin, I’ve ‘activated’ the plugin just to see if it will activate, but now I need to figure out the admin side so I can control the plugin settings.

    This is my first attempt at doing something like this, and I’ll be the VERY FIRST to raise my hand and say that I AM NOT a developer, I’m a designer/themer, so I’m lost. Don’t get me wrong, I have a VERY beginner (can anyone say Crayola?!) understanding of php, and I follow instructions very well, I just need instructions/a walk-through on how to do this. I’ve read some articles about the admin enque scripts and including them in my header.php file, but the articles have been a bit vague, well, to me at least. So, on a bent knee I ask you, PLEASE help me make this happen! 🙂

    I can’t help with custom coding requirements I’m afraid as it’s outside the scope of the Plugin, which simply exposes the jQuery UI libraries on the front end of your site.

    The actual jQuery code that you choose to implement is totally up to you. Sounds like you need someone to do some custom coding for you. What you are trying to do is not trivial.

    Sorry to hijack the forum, just wondering if you had any luck with this warhedf1?
