I have seen this discussed on other parts of the forum but for some reason I can’t seem to solve this.

Firebug says I have a Jquery error, but I am not exactly sure how to resolve this.

I tried wrapping the Event-Registration short code with [raw][/raw], but nothing changed.

Here is the link to the page with the event in question:

Here is a portion of the Firebug error:
SyntaxError: unterminated string literal
[Break On This Error]
…div#additional_attendee_’ + attendee_num;function markup(attendee_num) {return
?ee=8 (line 473, col 198)

Hi Christian,

two copies of jQuery are being loaded on the page. One older copy from the theme, and one from WordPress. The theme should be modified to enqueue the version from WordPress. Here are a few references:

Thank you Josh,

I have tried to enqueue the version from WordPress by adding [?php wp_enqueue_script(“jquery”); ?>] above the wp_head line to my header.php file .

Nothing changed, which leads me to believe I have left something out

The theme’s included version of jQuery needs to be removed. This will typically be loaded from either header.php or the theme’s functions.php.

Ahh – thanks Josh! – that did the trick.

All I needed to do was remove the callout for the old 1.2.6 jQuery from the header.php file and everything is now working.

Thanks again for steering us thru this.
