    HI Guys,

    I would like to move some javascript outside my <head> section.
    How should I do that?

    Hi,

    You have to do that manually unfortunately via appearance>editor>header.php

    Hi Dave,

    I understand that the scripts are generated within this section

    <?php
    wp_head();
    $themename = wp_get_theme();
    $themename = preg_replace(“/\W/”, “_”, strtolower($themename) );
    if( !get_option( $themename ) ) {
    require get_template_directory() . ‘/index-default.php’;
    exit;
    }
    ?>

    Are you suggesting that I should replace the code by static? Or is there any other way I can edit the script section and implement some of them in the footer?

    Regards,

    Ronald

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for the reply. I have discovered the functions.php section.
    But my question remains: is there any other way I can edit the script section and implement some of them in the footer?

    Regards,
    Ronald

    Hi Ronald,

    Actually this is quite difficult as this would involve shifting all of the javascripts manually to the footer and then ensuring whether this would work or not.

    Are you doing this for getting Google page speed ranking?

    Hi Shri,

    Yes I would like to move some of the scripts/css out of the header to gain loading speeds and satisfying users.

    Is there any way I can achieve this and if there is, how to go about it?

    Regards,

    Ronald

    Hi Ronald,

    Unfortunately shifting javascripts to footer breaks functioning of the theme.

    Regards,
    Shri
