(I'm actually on version 3.0.3, but that's not an option)
So I am trying to make a custom theme. Up until this point, everything has been working great.
I have a header.php, footer.php, index.php, as well as page.php and I have even taken advantage of category-x.php
In my header.php (which IS being included just fine with
<?php get_header(); ?>
wp_head(); which seems to work great, all the support links / js that the plugins need is loaded.
In my footer (which, again, is definitely being included) I have
<?php wp_footer(); ?>
Which IS DOES NOTHING.
Now, I loaded the default theme, and I viewed the generated source code in my web browser. With the default "Twenty Ten 1.1" theme, it does in fact insert the necessary <div>'s for the plugins to work.
I even went as far as to copy the identical <?php block from the default theme and pasted it into my footer.php immediately before the </body> tag.
On my theme NOTHING HAPPENS. When I check the generated source code in my browser, nothing is inserted and the plugins break, yet, the rest of the footer appears just fine.
I'm stumped and frustrated. Help :/
