Jquery Mobile popupPanel in a Wordpress PHP Page

I can create a basic HTML page using the example http://jquerymobile.com/test/docs/pages/popup/popup-panels.html and it works as designed.  I'm attempting to produce the same popup functionality with this code in a Wordpress homepage with zero luck.  The Open Panel button is at the top right of http://test2.dfigdesign.com and my panel should appear after the <div id="main" data-role="content">.  I have the the CSS and scripting included in the page.

How should this be handled differently to have the page return a panel, please?


<div data-role="popup" id="popupPanel-popup" data-corners="false" data-theme="none" data-shadow="false" data-tolerance="0,0">

    <button data-theme="a" data-icon="back" data-mini="true">Back</button>
    <button data-theme="a" data-icon="grid" data-mini="true">Menu</button>
    <button data-theme="a" data-icon="search" data-mini="true">Search</button>
     
</div>

It seems that you're closing the panel on button click, try to remove the line

//$("#popupPanel").popup('close');

here:

              $("#popupPanel button").on("click", function () {
                  $("#popupPanel").popup('close');
              });
