Are you able to import jquery into wordpress when you are not using <?php wp_head(); ?>

i am just starting with wordpress and didnt bring that during my theme, after i add it now it meses several things up and also, since i just add another factor with jquery i shouldn't do the irritation of fixing individuals things, and so i simply need to add jquery with no the tag. Any ideas?

You are able to by hand add jQuery in the Google CDN such as this in header.php, above some other calls to jQuery libraries:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

But understand that not using wordpress_mind inside your theme means you will have to by hand add links to JS and CSS files for many plug ins, because they hook into Wordpress via wordpress_mind and often get_footer, too.

If everything doesn't work right, use Firebug with Opera to determine which JS is loading and when you will find conflicts and errors.

Make use of the wp_enqueue_script() function. It is best to make use of this and let wordpress be worried about such as the jquery scripts to ensure that you do not finish up getting the styles/plug ins/whatever each including their very own versions.

I'd recommend that you simply keep <?php wp_head(); ?> not getting wordpress_mind may cause more problems in the future. For instance, your friend won't have the ability to on a regular plug ins.

If you wish to use Googles jQuery you need to simply p register WordPress's jQuery:

if( !is_admin()){
   wp_deregister_script('jquery'); 
   wp_register_script('jquery', ("http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"), false, '1.4.2'); 
   wp_enqueue_script('jquery');
}
