jQuery and Minify (2 posts)

    Thanks much for this plugin - it is very well though out, brings together a lot of different caching strategies and makes them very manageable.

    One issue I could use guidance on. After enabling JS Minify on a site, I started seeing an error "Jquery is not defined". I traced it to the combined js file that is added after the <head> tag. It does not in itself include jquery -- that appears further down in the head section as its own script tag, which explains why it cannot be referenced.

    Is there a strategy that is recommended when using wp_enqueue_script in order that jQuery shows up first before the other dependent scripts? Should dependents go in the footer?

    Thanks in advance.

    That's tricky depending on your other JS code. Sometimes you'll need to embed jQuery in the head and then dependent scripts after <body> in order to resolve that issue.
