Support » Plugins » Simple jQuery UI Dialog with WordPress!?

  • Hi together,

    I think I am a bit lost in the depths of registering, enqueing and executing JS in WP: All I want to do, is to display on a page like this.

    I understand, that all the required JS (jQuery UI) comes with each standard WP installation, correct?

    I found the following code snippets in the Codex documentation:

    function my_init_method() {
        if (!is_admin()) {
            wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );
    add_action('init', 'my_init_method');

    Do I need to register the jQuery / jQuery UI script at all – or is this regsitered by default?

    How do I enqueue the script on the pages I require it? Just like above? Do I need to make sure to check, if it’s not already enqueued by another script?

    And last but not least, how do I include my intended behaviour then? I understand, I need a snippet like the one below, but how do I include that on the page?

        jQuery(#somefunction) ...

    Maybe there is a tutorial somewhere explaining that comprehensively, then I would really appreciate to point me there!


    Best regards
