Though many of the concepts in this course are still relevant, overall this course does not reflect our current course standards.
[00:00:19] Then we need to talk a little bit about my friend jQuery because there's a little bit of stuff we have to differently when working with jQuery. jQuery assumes that the dollar sign is just for jQuery, but y'all know dollar sign is used in a lot of different libraries.
[00:00:57] So, things like masonry, jQuery, backbone, Underscore, just to name a few. There's some thick box and light box stuff. Since WordPress uses these, we don't have to go and get our own script and in fact, it's a bad idea to load your own jQuery or load anything that WordPress is already loading.
[00:01:37] That very well could break the URL, and it won't load. So I got to show you a little bit of code that you'll need to load if you're pulling stuff down off of the CDN directly, if you're doing that for some reason. There's also some times where you don't want your java script to load on every page.
[00:02:15] And finally we'll throw in that localized scripts at the end, passing some customed data. A few links for you, I will post up these slides so that you can have them but this is just to the straight docs. You don't need this to do what we're about to do, but if wanna take it further WordPress is pretty well documented.
[00:02:32] Oddly, it has a code x and developer site. So, it's kind of in the weird place of having two documentations, but for most of the stuff where you see developer.wordpress.org that's the newer stuff. And when you see codex in the URL, it's gonna be a little bit older, but it might not necessarily be outdated is kinda the tricky thing.
