jQuery-switchButton

I am using this script: code.

I am trying to get the switch button to show up like the example (view examples here), but for some reason it isn't working and I don't know why.

jQuery I'm using:
$("input#switch").switchButton({
   labels_placement: "right"
});

Open in new window


HTML I'm Using:
<div class="switchButton">
	<input id="switch" type="checkbox" name="anonymous" value="1" checked>
</div>

Open in new window


The URL It's supposed to work on:  http://girlzunderground.com/rate-pics.php  (the code in question is ajaxed to the page, but you can see it with Chrome's "inspect element" feature.)

The checkbox on this page is in the upper left hand corner of the box with the stars in it.  Right now it's just a plain checkbox and I would like to have it be the switch button like on the example I provided.

Thanks for the help!

Thanks for the comment.  I tried it out and added jQuery UI 1.11.1.  I also changed the binding function to be like yours.  But it still doesn't work.  I have no idea why!  Any other thoughts?

Thanks!

That is where I'm trying to use it.  My original post has a little more detail.

Yeah I seem to have got everything as you can see in the head of my doc.  Its strange how this isn't working.

Ha!  That putting jquery ui before the switch js worked!  crazy...  I bet I woulda been absolutely lost with that being the problem.  I guess it takes experience to know this and now I know this trick.  Thanks man!
