Why does Jquery work with Wordpress using jQuery('example') and not with $('example')???
everytime I run jquery on the console with Wordpress it doesn't understand the short version $

I haven't done Wordpress programming, but it could be that it uses "$" for something else. It's just an alias after all. You could try resetting it, but that might break something if it was using it.
Or you could create your own shorthand ("var jq = jQuery").
