There will be no more updates and I won’t answer any support questions. Thanks for your understanding.

Usage

To load additional JavaScript files just put them into a directory named jsautoload. This directory can be placed in three different locations that are loaded in the following order:

  • Child Theme dependent (if using a Child Theme) : in the Child Theme’s directory
  • Theme dependent : in the Theme’s directory
  • Theme independent : in the wp-content directory

Only files with extension .js are added, all other files are ignored. Subdirectories can be used and will also be scanned. To ignore a complete directory (including all subdirectories) name the directory beginning with an underscore (_). The files are added in alphabetical order. Directories always are added after files.

To load one ore more JavaScript files at the end of your HTML file just place them into a directory named footer. To add the files to the footer of your theme it is required to call wp_footer() in your footer.php.

I needed to inject some js into each page on the website. This plugin works perfectly. You just create a folder, ftp the javascript into the folder and that’s all. Works 100% with no fuss or bother.
