Having these two scripts on the very same page, only the latter one is run.

<script>
$().ready(function() {
      // validate signup form on keyup and submit
      $("#signupForm").validate({
            rules: {
                ...
            }
      });
});
</script>

and

      <script>
      $(function() {
            $('#lennart').avgrund({
                  ...
            });
      });
      </script>

What should be added to get both working?

Should the first one be :

$(document).ready(function() {

In the script, it is stated as I wrote it. Let me state it: I am a complete and utterly newbie.

What rjohnsonjr is saying is your first script should be changed from

$().ready(function() {

To

$(document).ready(function() {

Rob Jurd, thanks for explaining!
rjohnsonjr, Even though it is changed according to the suggestion, it doesn't work.
All experts, Any other suggestion?

I meant to say that the page I posted shows that the syntax you provided is correct also.

I would install chrome browser and use chrome developer tools to see what the javascript errors are.

Are you sure the first is not running? What happens if you add an alert()

I.e.

$(document).ready(function() {
    alert("dom is ready");
    // .... rest of your code below

And certainly get familiar with any of the browsers dev tools as @rjohnsonjr has suggested

My problem turned out to be a conflict between the jquery scripts versions I used. When I downloaded the latest version of jquery and installed it and referred to it, the problem was gone.

I hadn't given information in my question about which jquery versions (I actually had two) I was using, so you had no chance to spot the real problem.

Thanks for your efforts.
