• I am trying to create a php conditional tag that will make my jquery load ONLY on other pages other than my homepage.


    This is my website,


    Also, I am not calling for the jquery to load as the jquery is loading on it’s own… I’m not sure if it’s the wp_head that’s calling it, but if it is the wp head I can’t disable it from the homepage as I have some plugins there.

  • The easiest way to load the jQuery library is to put this
    <?php wp_enqueue_script('jquery'); ?> in header.php
    BEFORE <?php wp_head(); ?>

    To load your jquery routines on all pages except the homepage

    <?php if ( !is_home() ) { ?>
        ====  jquery code here =====
    <?php } ?>

    That assumes your homepage is your blog posts page. If you use a static top page, use !is_front_page() iintead of !is_home()

    Many pluggins that have a dependency on jquery (or other js library etc) will package it up with the pluggin and write it into every page via wp_head().

    you could:

    • edit the pluggin placing the conditional code within it
    • or create a homepage template exluding wp_head() and manually insert all of your header resources (copy and paste the paths from an existing page with wp_head())

    stvwlf, I tried the code but it didn’t work :(. I placed it before my wp_head.

    <link rel="pingback" href="<?php bloginfo('pingback_url'); ?>" />
    <?php wp_get_archives('type=monthly&format=link'); ?>
    <?php if ( !is_home() ) { ?>
        <?php wp_enqueue_script('jquery'); ?>
    <?php } ?>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    <div id="page">
    <div id="header">
    <div class="Ad">
    <?php if(function_exists('oiopub_banner_zone')) oiopub_banner_zone(2, 'center'); ?>
    <div id="headerimg">
    			<h1><a href="<?php echo get_option('home'); ?>/"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a></h1>
    			<div class="description"><?php bloginfo('description'); ?></div>
    		<ul id="nav">
    			<?php wp_list_pages('sort_column=menu_order&depth=1&title_li=');?>
    <?php include (TEMPLATEPATH . '/searchform.php'); ?>
    	<!--/header -->

    And zeniph, even when I don’t have wp_head the jquery still loads, i know because it appears on even a fresh installation of wordpress.

    Actually never mind I just took out the wp head and the jquery dissappeared so it definitely is in the jquery. But I don’t know what’s causing it to load.

    There are my plugins at the moment.

    Everywhere you see ‘AJAX’ in those descriptions you are loading javascript and there is a good chance it is jQuery. And several of them seem to have good reason to load on every page– the ratings plugin for example.

    You could also grep you plugin directory wp_head and narrow the search some– maybe.

    Thank you.
    Is there any way to make wp_head not load in the homepage but run on all the rest of the pages?

    You could build a home page template that doesn’t call wp_head(). You’ll loose some functionality and I’m not sure its worth it. What is it you are trying to accomplish by not loading jQuery on one page?

    you could try unregister jquery on frontpage (this will also break any plugin’s that depend on jQuery) then reregister it back and load it where u want it.

    How would I go on doing that?

    Is there any way to make wp_head not load in the homepage but run on all the rest of the pages?

    yes – slight variation on what stvwlf originally posted

    <?php if ( !is_home() ) {
    } ?>

    is_front_page() may also be used depending on your blog setup

    I will try that thank you very much I really appreciate it.
    Do you know how to block or as kaizer said, unregister a jquery call made from wp_head and then register back if jquery loads anywhere else other than the front page?

    not entirely sure at what chaoskaizer was alludinng to – perhaps jQuery.noConflict()

    regardless to isolate what ever you want to the home page only you will need to add conditional code

    perhaps let us know the core issue your trying to solve here i.e. why dont you want jquery on the homepage

    How would I go on doing that?

    add inside your theme’s functions.php

    function script_controller(){
    	global $wp_query;
    	$handle = 'jquery';
    	if ($wp_query->is_home || $wp_query->is_front_page){
    		// brute uninstall
    	} else {
    		wp_register_script($handle,'/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js', false, '1.2.6');

    Thank you VERY much guys I really appreciate it, I managed to fix the problem. Thanks so much!
