Puzzling Responsive Menu Toggle

Homepage Responsive Menu doesn’t toggle (please re-size browser into smaller width)

[ source ] + [ google groups post ]

Every other page (minus homepage), Responsive Menu toggle works. Any idea why? Hmm…

Thanks for your attention

I don’t see the Bootstrap javascript included on the site.

Did you remove the enqueue of plugins.js from your /lib/scripts.php file?

@chriscarr – Thanks for your attention brothaman.

This is my plugins.js file located in /lib/scripts.php – I don’t recall ever opening this file up.

How does the file look? Is everything intact?

 * Enqueue scripts and stylesheets
 * Enqueue stylesheets in the following order:
 * 1. /theme/assets/css/bootstrap.css
 * 2. /theme/assets/css/bootstrap-responsive.css
 * 3. /theme/assets/css/app.css
 * Enqueue scripts in the following order:
 * 1. jquery-1.10.1.min.js via Google CDN
 * 2. /theme/assets/js/vendor/modernizr-2.6.2.min.js
 * 3. /theme/assets/js/plugins.js (in footer)
 * 4. /theme/assets/js/main.js    (in footer)

  wp_enqueue_style('roots_app', get_template_directory_uri() . '/assets/css/app.css', false, null);

  // jQuery is loaded using the same method from HTML5 Boilerplate:
  // Grab Google CDN's latest jQuery with a protocol relative URL; fallback to local if offline
  // It's kept in the header instead of footer to avoid conflicts with plugins.

I just downloaded a fresh copy of Roots Theme and “copy / pasted” the entire scripts.php into my /lib/scripts.php and it blew out the entire site. Hmm…

Also, just checked Firebug console and I do not see any errors. Darn!

p.s. I’m thinking it blew out, b/c the most recent version of scripts.php was designed for Roots Theme 3.0 TB. I believe the current Roots Theme I have for this source website, was the previous Git before Ben Word published new Roots Theme.

Do you think I just create a new base-front-page.php? Perhaps I should learn to restructure my code a more proper way too.

Here is my current base-front-page.php

<?php get_template_part('templates/head'); ?>
<body <?php body_class(); ?>>

    $(function() {
        hashchange: false,
        play: 5000,
		animation: 'fade'


Here is my current front-page.php

  <?php get_template_part('templates/page', 'header'); ?>

<?php get_template_part('templates/front-page', 'header'); ?>
<?php get_template_part('templates/content', 'front-page'); ?>

The main.js and plugins.js files that are enqueued in that file are not being added to the site when loaded. I would start by disabling all your plugins and then reload the home page, view source and search for plugins.js.

If it shows up with all plugins disabled, then it is a conflict with one of your plugins. enable each plugin individually until the script is removed again.

You can use Github to look through the history of scripts.php to find the version you originally downloaded. You should also think about employing version control.

The reason the front page was not working was because you deleted the call to templates/footer.php in your base-front-page.php. The footer template contains an important action that is hooked into to load scripts. Add the following before </body> and it should start working again:

<?php wp_footer(); ?>

@chriscarr - Excellent suggestion. I started chiseling away at your idea and disable plugins, great suggestion. I will remember that advice for future projects.

@Foxaii – Mwhuah hauhauah. I will learn more about version control today by surfing the web, thank you very much for the idea suggestion.


I added the above code chunk before my closing body tag and plugins.js loaded!

BRB - going to research more about theme-wrapper, I believe that is the missing link to my ignorance.

OOoo Shnaps!

Thanks. Thanks a bunch. Thank you very much.


Good team work, hoorah!
