Support » Fixing WordPress » Javascript files not being loaded

  • 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()) {
    		// load the Google API copy in the footer
    		wp_register_script('jquery', '', array(), '1.5.1', true);
    		wp_enqueue_script('jquery', '', 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.
