jQuery fix for Uncaught TypeError is not a function error

0 votes


My code:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.3/jquery.min.js"></script> <script src="http://someothersite.com/external.js"></script>

external.js:

$("head").append(unescape(""));

Unfortunately I am getting the following error when I include my external script mentioned below:

Uncaught TypeError: $ is not a function


How can I fix this error as I am also unable to edit the external Javascript file as it's a third party. Any leads would be beneficial.

 Use the following lines of code in a JS file.

jQuery(document).ready(function($){ 
// jQuery code is in here
});

Once the above statement has been declared by you, then you will be able to use the $ sign. Hope this helps!!
