jQuery Tablesorter plugin not working

Hi,

I'm trying to implement jQuery tablesorter plugin in Coldfusion 9 pages. I can implement it fine on a page without any other .js file includes but when I try to use it in a .cfm that has other .js includes, it doesn't work. I make sure that jQuery is the first .js that is loaded and the css files are all in the right order. But the css does not fully load nor does the .js.

In firebug, I get the following error:

$("#myTable").tablesorter is not a function

I've been struggling with this for almost a day but nothing seems to work. Could someone who's implemented this and had similar issues point me in the right direction?

Are you making sure that your call to add table sorter to your table is after the DOM is loaded?

$(function() {
  $("#myTable").tablesorter;
});

...also, include parentheses when calling tablesorter.

$(function() {
  $("#myTable").tablesorter();
});

@ventaur:

Yes, I have document.ready before I call the tablesorter function. And I do have paren after tablesorter like so: tablesorter();

Here is my .cfm page that first includes another .cfm file that has all the css and .js files in it.

<!---test2.cfm--->
<head>
<cfinclude template="UI_Sorting.cfm">
  <script type="text/javascript">
        $(document).ready(function() {
            $("#myTable").tablesorter();
       });
 </script>
</head>

<body onload="SetPermissions();">


<!---UI_Sorting.cfm--->
<style type="text/css">
            @import url("../styles/tablesorter.css");
            @import url("../styles/jquery.tablesorter.pager.css");
            @import url("../styles/jquery-ui-1.8.14.custom.css");
            
</style>
<script src="../jquery/jquery-1.5.1.min.js" language="javascript"></script>
<script src="../jquery/jquery-ui-1.8.14.custom.min.js" language="javascript"></script>
<script src="../jquery/jquery.tablesorter.min.js" language="javascript"></script>
<script src="../jquery/jquery.tablesorter.pager-mod.js" language="javascript"></script>
<!---xxxx--->

Now, I do have another js function that is run on the onload of the body. Could that be a problem?

Nope, I removed the body onload js function but still get this error:

$("#myTable").tablesorter is not a function


I know that jquery is being loaded because I can invoke an alert box in the document.ready function and it works fine. It's just the table sorter function that is a problem.

Oops, I'm a total idiot on this! I was loading the jquery minified file twice! Thanks for your input though!
