WordPress and jQuery

Add this code to the header.php file in the theme. Add this line before wp_head():


Then you can write a script (inside script tags) – somewhat like this:

var $j = jQuery.noConflict(); // using j as selector to avoid conflicts


    $j("#respond").hide(); // hide comment field
