I am trying to add the following footer script:
<script src="https://www.reclaimdesign.org/uploads/2/4/9/8/24985082/custom_themes/606760176814155089/files/socialsharing.min.js" async="async"></script>
I have tried adding to wp-footer with the code snippets, but when I check View Source I don’t see it anywhere on the page code.
I have also tried this plugin – https://wordpress.org/plugins/insert-headers-and-footers/ – but it doesn’t seem to work either, so I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.
I have tried clearing the cache in WP and in the browser. Neither helped.
I used the JS template in code snippets and kept all settings as they default. I noticed that one of the options is “Only run on site front end”. Could this be the problem? As I say, this was selected as the default so I left it at that.
I have various scripts I made for our current site that I will need to add in to the footer so it’s quite important for me to get this working without pulling out the little remaining hair I have 😉
Please could you help?
Here’s my test site- https://reclaimdesign-383226.easywp.com/about-reclaim-design.htmlJanuary 29, 2020 at 7:46 am #1148322DavidStaffCustomer Support
i can see the script in the
<head>of your site ….. can you check the right hook is enabled? 🙂
Also can you disable any cache/optimization plugins including autoptimize and then let us know so we can take another look.January 29, 2020 at 7:50 am #1148325Michael
David you are absolutely right. I’m sorry for wasting your time. I couldn’t see the wp_head bit at all….January 29, 2020 at 7:53 am #1148327DavidStaffCustomer Support
Glad to be of help 🙂January 29, 2020 at 8:17 am #1148339Michael
Hi again David,
I have another question! The footer code is there, but for some reason it is not working when I am calling it from the share buttons at the bottom of the page just above the footer area. This worked great for my current site https://www.reclaimdesign.org and I don’t understand why not now.
I have an onclick event for each of the social share buttons eg:
Which is meant to call that function which is within the js file in the footer. As I say, it does this on my current site but it’s not happening at all on this test site:
Please can you help me work out what I am not seeing?January 29, 2020 at 9:08 am #1148405DavidStaffCustomer Support
The jQuery script is using the
$function which WP doesn’t natively support it has to be declared. Or replace all
jQueryin the code.January 29, 2020 at 9:10 am #1148410Michael
Thank you David – I would not have worked that out on my own (or at least probably not for several days!) – I really appreciate the helpJanuary 29, 2020 at 9:15 am #1148418DavidStaffCustomer Support

Woohoo! That works! Thank you David – you’re a legend!January 29, 2020 at 9:17 am #1148422Michael
I’m glad you’re glad to be of help, or I’d be stuffed otherwise 😉
