    Hello let me give a quick run down of the steps that have lead to this to see if somebody can finally find whats wrong here.

    1) I had my site on a different hosting company that SUCKED, worst than my first experience with Godaddy if thats imaginable. So I decided to migrate to site over to my new hosting company. WP-Content/DB transferred site looked great, everything worked great.

    2) As I proceeded to keep building my site and adding plugins I added W3 Total Cache.. I enabled minify and all the caching options (I don’t remember exactly). This caused my site to shut down or overload.. I had to go in my cPanel and delete the W3 Total Cache folder, take out the w3tc php files and folder and even set my wp-config to Define_False cache.

    3) When I finally had access to my site again everything that involves javascript (I think this is the problem I really can’t say for sure because Im not an expert) is broken (please take a look at sociallawschool.com). I am running the Dynamix theme and the revolution slider doesn’t come up anymore, my parallax images do not behave the way they are supposed to; I can see in my header that the javascript <script>’s are still there, but I see a couple lines that are missing, I don’t really know how to tell if it’s right or wrong. Any widget that involves jqueries is automatically opened or can’t be closed, or just plain doesn’t work.

    Conclusion is that I think I have narrowed it down to W3 Total Cache.. I just need a solution because I have been going crazy over this for 2-3 days already.

    I am using the latest version of WP, the Dynamix theme, and my site url is sociallawschool.com.

    Hi,

    I am really not sure what has happepend to your site, the correct files look like they are loading in OK and it seems to be functioning alright too.

    If you switch themes to the standard WordPress theme what happens then? I recommend re-installing DynamiX as that is the only way to reset everything to fix it.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Would that mean that I loose everything that I have done? What would be the proper way to re-installing the theme in order to not to loose anything I’ve done?

    It’s not a theme issue from what I see because I switched to other themes and the jqueries still don’t load.. It must be aproblem with the code that loads them or the cache of the site or something.. W3 total cache completely ruined it..

    I just did this.. I added in the header: <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.7.1.min.js”></script> .. I loaded my site and I got this message from the revolution slider:

    Revolution Slider Error: You have some jquery.js library include that comes after the revolution files js include.
    This includes make eliminates the revolution slider libraries, and make it not work.

    To fix it you can:
    1. In the Slider Settings -> Troubleshooting set option: Put JS Includes To Body option to true.
    2. Find the double jquery.js include and remove it.

    So I switched the setting to the body option and the slider came out! It looks like jquery is working now.. But in my footer on the lower left hand side it says in small text:

    Loading…
    Loading…

    It seems that the call to load jquery is not working on the original file?

    Hi,

    It looks like the Loading… text is coming from a plugin called, ajax-login-register-dialog. If you have a plugin called this, try de-activating it to see if it disappears.

    I will ask Andy (theme creator) about the jQuery issue.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    Hi,

    It sounds like your WordPress install is not happy at all. Can you please reply with your FTP login details and WP login details so we can have a further look but it looks like a very damaged WP install. I recommend asking your hosting company to have a look for you. It sounds like the caching plugin is still in the system somewhere too.

    Kind regards,
    Tom

    I have used W3 Total Cache over the last year. The plugin has a lot of problems. I struggled to get it to work over the last few months and finally abandoned it for WP Fastest Cache (after trying some others) and Cloudflare.

    There are many problems with W3 Total Cache and the issues raised in the support forum are unanswered by the plugin author. The support forum is available at http://wordpress.org/support/plugin/w3-total-cache .

    The problem you describe is complained about in the W3 Total Cache support forum.

    To summarise, in a few short months W3 Total Cache has moved from a prized star in a wordpress installation to an abandoned dog.
