Run JavaScript in Template

    I need to run a bit of JavaScript in a template - it is dynamically generated with the template. How can I hook it up so it runs properly? Right now it seems to fire before xenforo.js is loaded and I think it causes my JavaScript to not fire correctly.

    Should I wrap my code in $(function() {}) or XenForo.register?

    You probably want to wrap it in:
        // Your JS here.
    That should defer running until the page has finished loading (by that point xenforo.js should have finished etc.)

    That is equal to $(function() {});.

    Maybe I did something else wrong then... hmm.

    Yes, you're right. Sorry, I didn't realise you'd mentioned that in your post :unsure:

    Are you running any add-ons - specifically the DeferJS add-on that recently went into the Resource Manager?

    That would definitely cause your code to execute before xenforo.js because it places all the JS in the footer.

    Nope, fresh 1.2 install.

    I am thinking it might be an error in my code that causes it to not work as intended.
