A little problem with jQuery mobile

when I add jQuery mobile to my page,
<script type=“text/javascript” src=“js/jquery.mobile-1.1.1.min.js”></script>

without doing anything else, the word “loading” in big black letters appears at the bottom of the page…
(on iPhone, don’t know about other devices…)


thank you…

Just tried including minified jQuery mobile v1.1.1 (http://code.jquery.com/mobile/1.1.1/jquery.mobile-1.1.1.min.js) on a blank page and couldn’t reproduce your error on an iPhone.
Must be something else you’re doing.

oh no…

ok… thank you…

here are two examples:

  1. with jQuery mobile..
    here I see word “loading” in black letters at bottom left… (might have to scroll to bottom to see it… )
    (this is in iPhone3, don’t know about other devices…)

  2. without jQuery mobile
    here I don’t see word “loading” at btm of pg

the one and only difference betw the two is the inclusion of this tag:

<script type="text/javascript" src="js/jquery.mobile-1.1.1.min.js"></script>

this is puzzling… would appreciate suggestions…

thank you…

PS: it also happens on my mac… on FF, Chrome, & Safari…

Just out of interest, why are you including jQuery mobile on the page? You don’t need it for the slideshow to work on the iPhone.


I’m still learning mobile development; want to start learning to use jQuery mobile (for example want to learn to use events here… http://jquerymobile.com/test/docs/api/events.html and some of the other goodies it offers…:wink:

this is as good a reason as any to load jQuery mobile on your page, no??? :wink:

(for example want to run the slide show on swipe…)

thank you…

There seem to be lots of discussions about this online. Here are two random search results:


They may or not help …
