Hi, I recently purchased the Pro version and am trying to get the Slider and/or jQuery pagination to display. I can't seem to get anything but the standard Grid layout to display, and I'm getting an error in my console that reads:

TypeError: $(...).owlCarousel is not a function


So, I'm a bit stuck. I was going to see if it was a NoConflict jQuery mode issue as described here:

But when I looked at the source, it appears that you may have already covered that by using the following around problem code:

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

So I've ruled that out for now, but I'm still not sure what's causing the slider & jQuery features to not display. If you could take a look at a dummy page here, where the slider should be appearing?

Welcome to our forum,

i can see owl.carousel.min.js file loaded fine on your website.

Can you please deactivate others plugin or try with another theme and let me know the result.

Because it worked with separate themes, I’m just going to rework a child theme based on a more common WordPress default like TwentySixteen. Looks like the original code developer left out a few things and it has become a bit difficult to track down. Thank you for your help up to this point though!

Thank you. I was wary of changing too many things, but I systematically went through all of the plugins and disabled, reloaded, and enabled, and nothing happened. BUT, when I changed it to the TwentySixteen theme and loaded the page, it DID work. So, thank you for pointing me in the right direction. What files should I be looking to in TwentySixteen that I can duplicate into my current theme so that I have the proper support/loading order for the theme I’m using? My guess is header.php, footer.php, and functions.php but I suspect there may be something I’m overlooking?
