Wordpress + Jigoshop 1.8.1, simple install not working

Posted on 2014-02-18
Last Modified: 2014-02-24
I have a very basic wordpress and jigoshop install, from fresh I have the latest version of jigoshop and wordpress and have applied a very basic theme just to try and make them work (I am aware it is a mess but this is not the theme I will be using on the site, its just a very basic one I have put together), with 2012/13/14 applied Jigoshop works however even with the most basic of custom themes applied jigoshop seems to be missing its jQuery functionality.
I know I am going to get alot of people saying additional jQuery library calls or disable your plugins but I only have jigoshop active, NOTHING else not even Hello Dolly, and the theme you can see is extremely simple and is making no jquery calls at all, at the minute its really quite stripped back just so I can see what is going on.

Here is a link to the test site with test theme.

Obviously you may want to add to basket and checkout to see the bulk of the issues.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not seeing any issues with Firefox current.  The formatting is poor, but I can add the iPhone 4 to the cart and view the cart contents without errors.

The problem is jquery related jigoshop relies on jquery to hide the multiple address forms on checkout for example and also to show product variations and the quantity buttons. The basic form actions still work but without jquery it does not function enough to checkout, you can't show the payment mechanism for example.

Payment mechanism visible.
The text is white on white, but it's there.

Yes sorry, I have fixed the issue this morning, it turned out to be a missing wp_footer(); hook was not entered correctly so those were not being included, I noticed that those were missing, hence the lack of functionality.

Found the cause of the problem, it was as I thought found by the lack of an included piece of functionality but as I am not familiar with jigoshop it took me longer than normal to see this.
