jQuery in WordPress – Why is it not working?


I am using this as my starter template: www.html5reset.org/

It’s pretty nice, but I believe something is wrong with jQuery in there.

In the functions.php it says:

// Load jQuery
    if ( !function_exists(core_mods) ) {
        function core_mods() {
            if ( !is_admin() ) {
                wp_register_script('jquery', ("//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js"), false);

This seems fine to me – is it alright?

There also is a premade JS file. In this file it says:

// remap jQuery to $

I don’t know really what this does, but it seems also ok.

To test if jQuery works, I tried the following – none of it is woking, jQuery is not defined.

$(document).ready(function() {
    alert("This is a test.");

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
    alert("This is a test.");

$(document).ready(function($) {
    alert("This is a test.");

So, can you tell ma what could be wrong with this? Thank you!
