Alright, I am trying to do a very simple thing: use jQuery in my
myScript.js file. I'm on Magento 188.8.131.52. The theme I am building is based on the built-in
rwd theme, which by default loads jQuery 1.10.2 in noConflict mode, locally (as opposed to Google cdn). If I attempt to make a jQuery funtion in
myScript.js, I get the following error (in my Chrome dev console): ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined. However, if I put the same function inside of
<script> somewhere in the HTML, it works as expected.
So, I have done some researching and poking around and it seems the problem is coming from the load order of
.js files in the page head, where
myScript.js is being loaded before
jquery-1.10.2.min.js. I have tried a lot of different things to fix this (attempting to call
myScript.js after jQuery)—I have moved the line in
page.xml that calls jQuery to before the
myScript.js call. I have moved the
myScript call to local.xml, where I put it at the very bottom. No matter what I do, I cannot get
myScript.js to load after
jquery-1.10.2.min.js. The load order in the
<head> will always, always be the exact same, regardless of the order I list them in. I can get either file to not load at all by removing it's call from
page.xml, so I know that I am editing the correct file.
TL;DR: How can I get
myScript.js to load after jQuery?
Thanks in advance!
P.S. Am I using the
backtick markdown properly in my question? It feels like I am using it really often, but I believe I am following to guidelines. Any stylistic help would be appreciated :)
