Implementing jQuery
« on: November 02, 2009, 04:52:41 AM »
I am trying to spice up my show_menu2 menu with some jquery I have called jquery.js and my menu.js sctipts in the head section of my template as follows.

Code: [Select]
<!--Start of Dynamic Head Contnet-->
<title><?php page_title(); ?></title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=<?php if(defined(&#39;DEFAULT_CHARSET&#39;)) { echo DEFAULT_CHARSET; } else { echo &#39;utf-8&#39;; }?>" />
<meta name="description" content="<?php page_description(); ?>" />
<meta name="keywords" content="<?php page_keywords(); ?>" />
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="<?php echo TEMPLATE_DIR?>/screen.css" media="screen" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="jquery.js" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="menu.js" />
// automatically include optional WB module files (frontend.css, frontend.js)
if (function_exists(&#39;register_frontend_modfiles&#39;)) {

<!--End of Dynamic Head Content-->

The problem  I am having is that the template is not rendered at all.  If i place the call the the js files to be above where I call the register frontend mod files functions the template renders but the module css files aren't included.

in your code, jquery.js and menu.js are placed in your root.. are they ? if they are not, you must use <?php echo TEMPLATE_DIR; ?> or <?php echo WB_URL; ?>/ folder / folder / ...  / ... / to define the path to these java scripts..

Well - the <script>-tag can't be written in the "short" [xhtml-|xml-] form - so the "normal" //close//-tag is needed.*)
Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo TEMPLATE_DIR?>/jquery.js" ></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo TEMPLATE_DIR?>/menu.js" ></script>

Also, as crnogorac081 described, the (whole?) complete path to the scripts ...

Kind regards

It was the closing script tag.  I can't believe I would forget something so simple.  Thanks
