WordPress WordPress Theme Development Working with CSS and JS in WordPress Themes How to Link to JS from functions.php File

Menu Bar Won't Load: Uncaught TypeError: $(...).foundation is not a function

My menu bar won't load. I looked at the browser console and found this error:

app.js?ver=4.5.3:6 Uncaught TypeError: $(...).foundation is not a function

Here's my code on that page:

jQuery(document).ready( function($) {
    // wordpress & jquery need you to specify that the '$' means what it normally means in jquery so you need to include the jquery in this 

   //code goes here

    $( ".nav-toggle" ).click(function() {

      return false;


Maybe the error is on my functions.php page because my code here looks like the video code...
