' Tested ' JQuery Not Responding.... WordPress Help!

Hello everyone…

I am having an issue getting my JQuery to Call… I had tested it’s functionality, and it simply isn’t working.

I am using the HTML5 Blank WordPress theme, and all is well except this minor little detail…

This is what I have used to test/call the JQuery to test it’s functionality, I used it within the function.js file:

// remap jQuery to $

/* trigger when page is ready */
$(document).ready(function (){



There was no action when called, it did not alert…

This is what I have in my funtions.php file:

// Load jQuery
	if ( !function_exists(core_mods) ) {
		function core_mods() {
			if ( !is_admin() ) {
				wp_register_script('jquery', ("//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js"), false);

Is there a bug in this script perhaps? Or am I not understanding what is going on here?

Advice needed…

Thank you…
