Using JQuery Accordions in a Theme

I'm having trouble getting a jquery accordion to work in an exhibit theme. (or any theme really).

We've upgraded to 1.3, so I assume I don't have to call the jquery core. I dropped the basic jquery accordion script into the header and in show.php I set a accordion id div and dropped in some sample content.

We have a lot of text in a certain exhibit
and ultimately, I'd like to be able to have it display in an accordion, rather than a big block on the page, but I'm not having any luck.

Is there something blindingly simple that is specific to Omeka that I'm overlooking here (there usually is...)?

I've even gone through a few accordion tutorials to make sure I'm not missing anything.

Thanks in advance!

If this project is online, can you provide a link to the page in question? If not can you confirm whether jquery is loading by viewing the page source.

Unfortunately its not online, but the source code showed that jquery.js, jquery-ui.js and jquery-noconflict.js were all loading.

We aren't going to be using the accordion after all - it won't work for what we want, but I still want to use jquery for a graphical slider on the main page.

My first suggestion would be to make sure that jQuery is working correctly loaded by putting this in show.php

<script>$(document).ready(function() {
	alert("jQuery is working.");

If that doesn't work, it's possible that noConflict has been called, so try:

<script>jQuery(document).ready(function() {
	alert("jQuery is working.");

If neither of those work, it sounds like jQuery isn't loading for some reason.

Jquery-noconflict is loaded by default, so you must replace all $ in your script with jQuery. If your problems still persist, it is likely an issue with your script, rather than Omeka.
