[resolved] panel not opening with custom theme - quick fix (3 posts)

    plugin version: 0.1
    theme: custom theme

    as mentioned in other forum posts, panel.js isn't loaded sometimes. a quick fix that worked for me:
    change last argument of function wp_enqueue_script on line 77 in sliding-panel.php to false. this loads panel.js in the header. seems to be an issue with some themes not loading footer scripts correctly.

    sliding-panel.php, line 77:
    wp_enqueue_script( 'sliding-panel-js', SLIDING_PANEL_URL . '/panel.js', array( 'jquery' ), '0.1', true );
    wp_enqueue_script( 'sliding-panel-js', SLIDING_PANEL_URL . '/panel.js', array( 'jquery' ), '0.1', false );

    for me it does the trick but i'm open for any suggestions on how to solve this properly.

    Most likely, your theme doesn't appropriately call the wp_footer hook.

    Thanks a lot, that was exactly the problem. I inserted the wp_footer hook:
    in my theme's footer.php just before the closing </body> tag and erverything is working smoothly now. panel.js is added to the footer as it is supposed to without any modifications to the plugin code.
