JavaScript to Footer
plugin moves styles as well as scripts to footer (1 post)

    I was confused when I saw this happening - why would the plugin move styles as well as scripts to the footer?

    Then I realized that I'm hooking my function that runs both wp_enqueue_style and wp_enqueue_script to the action wp_enqueue_scripts. When I change the hook to init, everything seems to work OK.

    However, as far as I can tell, hooking to wp_enqueue_scripts - despite the name - is best practice for styles as well as scripts. The codex recommends it, and Automattic's _s starter theme does it that way too.

    Do you know a way to get around this? Or what the actual downsides there are to hooking to init?
