Load jQuery from Google CDN in WordPress

WordPress, by default, includes a local copy of jQuery which gets loaded up on your website and also used by the WordPress Admin Dashboard. This is great because it makes life easier but wouldn’t it be even greater if WordPress used a copy of jQuery which was stored on Google’s CDN (or jQuery’s CDN for that matter). Well, with a tiny bit of theme editing this is possible.


Smooth Page Scroll with jQuery

Many popular websites have the ‘Back to Top’ same-page links, which allow you to get back to the top of the page quickly. Some websites even scroll upwards smoothly. This jQuery code, written by LearningjQuery, allows you to do just that. Just include this code in your $(document).ready() function and it enables itself on all same-page hash links.
