i was pulling my hair out with this for a while.
I've been using custom JavaScript sideshows etc in my sites, but they stop working on pages with "image gallery" or "userdefinedforms" etc.

anyway, the solution was the JavaScript libraries conflicting with the use of "$"
putting this as the very end of my code solved it:


I hope this helps others!

where abouts do you put the code? in or in the js file that is causing the conflict?

yes! just fixed it..

I used:

(function($) {
$(document).ready(function() {

// code;

at the top and bottom of the js file

I could kiss you! haha
Thats been annoying me for so long. I've found that script.js that comes with SS conflicts with my 3rd party JS scripts, removing Script.js makes them work. But then the responsive menu stops working! Wrapping my init.js scripts like you said has worked. thanks!
