I've installed Orbit Slider (Chapter 6) but it fails to work: images appear beneath each other. I have another jQuery active on my pages, to automatically resize images in the footer menu. I thought first that the two might conflict, but when I disable WP Fluid Images (which is the one resizing the images automatically (I am not familiar with another way of doing that...), Orbit still places the images below each other.

 

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

I just looked at the site and it's showing the slider isn't installed.  It definitely sounds like a jQuery issue.

Apologies...

I had de-activated the slider temporarily...

The problem seems to be that you are calling conflicting versions of jQuery.  WordPress is calling jQuery 1.7.2 bundled with WordPress and something else is calling "the latest version" of jQuery which is 1.8.

However the call for the latest version doesn't appear to be properly formed, which suggests that you might be calling it yourself with some custom code?  It looks like it is being added as a code snippet to wp_head.

If you aren't doing that yourself then it is caused by a poorly designed plugin.  I poorly designed because plugins should use the WordPress enqueue scripts system for adding java script, rather than adding it directly to the head.

Thanks Rick. Re-writing it with enqueue solved it.
