Force plugin javascript to load in wp_footer via functions.php (2 posts)

    We have a simple WordPress site with 4 plugins: a jQuery slider, events calendar, lightbox gallery, and translation tool. Currently, only 1 of the 4 plugins has an option in the wp_admin area to load the javascript in the header or footer.

    We know that we can force the plugins to load their javascript in the wp_footer by editing the wp_register_script function in each individual plugin. However, this method is not ideal because 1) the amount of effort required and 2) the changes will be lost each time the plugin is upgraded.

    Is there is a way to force plugins' javascript files to load in the wp_footer via our functions.php file?

    In a word, no. Nor is this necessarily advisable. Some plugins place their js in the header for good reason.
