    If the answer to this is already in the forums, I can’t find it. I’ve already got the .js file registered and enqueued with wp_register_script and wp_enqueue_script as outlined in The problem is that when I try to enter code to actually call it, like using onsubmit=”whatever” in my form tag, the call gets stripped out when I save the page.

    Also I have a script that’s part of a TransferBigFiles widget that must be called AFTER the widget’s DIV code is rendered, which means it can’t be called in the <head>. What would I do with that one? I figure I could put the script directly into footer.php somewhere, but then I’d have to worry about it getting wiped out every time Enfold is updated. I asked them if they have a WP plugin, but they haven’t responded yet.

    I’m sure I’m just missing something that’s right in front of me, so any help would be most appreciated.

    1. I’d suggest binding the event in the JS file instead of the form tag, you can use the following:

    2. You can use the wp_footer hook:

    function custom_func() {
    	// code here
    add_action('wp_footer', 'custom_func');

    I’m getting the hang of the jQuery binding thing. It’s working quite well, thank you! I did end up using the footer hook for the actual binding calls though. Turns out that wp_register_script and wp_enqueue_script insert my custom script file just before the jQuery libraries, so I couldn’t call jQuery stuff at that point.

    One thing I’m still a bit confused on though: Even in the footer where they do work, if I use the $() I get an error that $ is not a function. However if I use jQuery(), it works just fine. Could something else in all the scripts included with the Enfold theme be conflicting with $()???

    Thanks again!



    Wrap your code with like this:

    function add_custom_script(){
    // you can use $ here.
    add_action('wp_footer', 'add_custom_script');
