JQuery Not Working With Godaddy Hosting



I ran into a problem today with a client who was hosted on Godaddy. For some reason a jquery script that I use regularly was not functioning on the server.

After many modifications, stripping it to the bare essentials, and finding other jquery codes that would not work - I spent some time on the phone with a GoDaddy rep and eventually found the problem. They insisted I had a scripting error, though there was no scripting error when I uploaded the very same file to other web servers. The rep rewrote the same code in a text file and uploaded it and we finally got a jquery to work.

So it was decided the text editor that I was using was adding in some type of corruption or encoding that messed with the jquery. The text editor that I use - being notepad++ - I tried taking my files, rewriting them in notepad - and voila they worked.

So if you are having a similar problem on a website design with a GoDaddy server - try rewriting the file in notepad and reuploading and perhaps it will resolve your issue as well. I imagine it could happen with other javascripts as well.
