[resolved] ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined (5 posts)

    Hi,

    I've setup everything properly and the plugin is not working. I keep getting the following error:

    ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined

    It seems to be happening because jQuery is loaded at the footer. We don't really want to load it in the head just to make this one plugin work.

    Is there any way to get it to work with jQuery being loaded at the footer?

    Thanks!

    The plugin will not work with jQuery loaded in the footer. Ideally, all of the javascript would be loaded in the footer (seeing as this is the best practice), but I have found that themes are often missing the wp_footer call. Therefore, for the greatest compatibility, the javascript is loaded inline (not ideal but more reliable). I have gone to some lengths to allow the plugin to dynamically load style and javascript code when they are needed, but all of these behaviors really on jQuery being loaded. Additionally, I have already tried seeing if the plugin can simple wait for jQuery to load, but this results in a missed jQuery(window).on('load') called, causing the rest of the plugin to fail.

    I am sorry that you are dissatisfied with this free plugin. Given that I have already provided a workaround, I find your review to be a little rude. I am a full-time civil engineering student and I put time into these plugins because I enjoy contributing to the WordPress community. I don't appreciate you making this a negative experience for me.

    I don't really see the necessity in you calling me rude, just for giving you a bad review. It is a review after all and I have a right to give one. I don't see why I should be worried not to hurt your feelings and you not appreciating the review. Only you have created a negative experience out of this and have dragged me into your drama. It is you who is being rude and selfish imposing how I should rate your plugin based on MY opinion. You apologize, give me an explanation and then proceed to passive aggressively criticize me.

    I contacted you on two occasions and you never responded, I understand you are busy, but then again who is not. I never intended to keep the review low. However, at the time that's what I gave you for your lack of response, etc.....Free or not, you being a student or not, having a job or not. I did not expect you to take it so immaturely. The explanation you've provided me for it not being possible would have sufficed, I'm pretty sure I would have understood. I've changed the review to 3 stars, I'm sure you'll be ok.

    However, if it continues to contribute to a negative experience for you then let me know and I'll give you 5 stars. I should warn you though, the real world will is far more challenging.

    Take care!

    If you are still interested, I think I've solved the problem.
