this seems to be an easy thing, but i can't get it working: I'm trying to include tipTip at my wordpress (3.0) site. So far, I loaded jquery at the header.php, copyed the 3 tipTip files into wp-include/js/jquery and wrote

<code><script type="text/javascript"> $(function(){ $(".test").tipTip(); }); </script></code>

at the very start of my worpress post. Elements of class "test", however, will not react and in firebug, the codeblock is grayed out.

Any suggestions? Thank you in advance!

    For working with DOM and JQuery within Wordpress Installation, you have to use

    jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {

        //paramter für bsp. toggle


    instead of simply

    $(function() {


    So for your TipTip implementation it should be

    jQuery(document).ready(function ($) {
