can i load js like: rws_enqueue_script ('https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min',true);

I think it is wp not rws. Yes you can include like this but using wordpress one will reduce page load.

Hi Christian,

You would not need to include jQuery as it is default in WordPress.

I have put two examples below of how to use the wp_enqueue_scripts hook.


//* Enqueue Scripts and Styles
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'sample_enqueue_scripts_styles' );
function sample_enqueue_scripts_styles() {

        // Using a CDN or URL you would link like this.
    wp_enqueue_style( 'google-fonts', '//fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Source+Sans+Pro:400,600,700';

        // To link to a file inside your theme directory you would do the following.
        // NOTE: Look at the - array('jquery') - you are saying that this script relied on jQuery to be loaded.
    wp_enqueue_script( 'sample-js', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/js/sample.js', array( 'jquery' ), '1.0.0', true );


Take a look at the notes on this Codex page about wp_enqueue_script.

Hope this helps

Craig :)
