jquery document ready function not being called

For some reason I can’t get the jquery document ready to fire for my plugin

my javascript

jquery(document).ready(function($) {
    alert("hello world");

the source from my website

<link rel='stylesheet' id='admin-bar-css'  href='http://example.com/wp-includes/css/admin-bar.css?ver=20111209' type='text/css' media='all' />
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://example.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.7.1'></script>
<script type='text/javascript'>
/* <![CDATA[ */
var fantasy_golf = {"ajaxurl":"http:\/\/example.com\/wp-admin\/admin-ajax.php"};
/* ]]> */
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://example.com/wp-content/plugins/fantasy-golf/js/fantasy-golf.js?ver=1.2'></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://example.com/wp-includes/js/comment-reply.js?ver=20090102'></script>

when I follow the source of my fantasy-golf.js (in firefox’s source) it has the correct version of my js. (it shouldn’t be due to it caching an older version)

Try using jQuery instead of jquery. (Note the capital “Q”.)


Upon viewing your source, you have an extra });.

Working example

You could try writing it a little differently. Instead of

jquery(document).ready(function($) {
    alert("hello world");

Try this:

(function($) {
        alert('hello world');
