    Hello. 🙂

    I inherited a relatively ‘messy’ project from a client. I am attempting to use a simple jquery slideshow, but of the 5 I have tried, it appears that the jquery features simply aren’t working.

    I created a blank page template (no call to header, footer, etc.) and tried to call it up there, but it still didn’t work.

    If you don’t mind taking a look and telling me where the confict(s) are coming from, I’d really appreciate the help!

    Here’s the site:

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Good Morning Esmi,

    Thanks for the reply!

    I have unsuccessfully tried the first 3 of those suggestions, and will go ahead and give the 4th one a shot right now.

    The test page I have the slider on is here (where it’s clearly stacking the images and ignoring the jquery):

    I did notice that the last guy working on this site has four other themes installed (but inactive). Is there any way the presence of those inactive themes could possible have something to do with this?

    Thanks again!

    Update: I went ahead and wiped out all the function calls in the header, then used this call-up for the jQeury:

    <?php wp_enqueue_script(“jquery”); ?>
    <?php wp_head(); ?>

    And we’re back in business. Thanks for your help!
