Just want to confirm if this looks right.

Hey all, I just added this to my Wordpress function.php file and it seems to be working, I just wanted to double check if this was the right method of calling jquery and its plugins.

    if (!is_admin()) add_action("wp_enqueue_scripts", "my_jquery_enqueue", 11);
    function my_jquery_enqueue() {
       wp_register_script('jquery', "http" . ($_SERVER['SERVER_PORT'] == 443 ? "s" : "") .     "://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.10.1/jquery.min.js", false, null);

       wp_register_script('modernizr', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/vendor/modernizr-2.6.2-respond-     1.1.0.min.js', array('jquery'), '', false );

       wp_register_script('columnizer', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/columnizers.js', array('jquery'), '', false      );

       wp_register_script('bxslider', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/jquery.bxslider.min.js', array('jquery'), '', true );
       if(is_page('home')) {

       wp_register_script('bootstrap', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/vendor/bootstrap.min.js', array('jquery'), '', true );

       wp_register_script('plugins', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/plugins.js', array('jquery'), '', true );

       wp_register_script('stickem', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/jquery.stickem.js', array('jquery'), '', true );

       wp_enqueue_script('imageloader', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/imagesloaded.pkgd.min.js',     array('jquery'), '', true );

If it's working it may be fine :)

Pinging Zac Gordon for sanity check.

First, you don't have to worry about calling jQuery. If you say a JS file is dependent on jQuery it will load it automatically.

Second, you don't have to use the wp_enqueue_script twice. It is used in conjunction with wp_register_script. Check out this video: http://teamtreehouse.com/library/how-to-build-a-wordpress-theme/preparing-to-code-wordpress-templates/linking-javascript-2
