Greetings, I'm new to greensock/js so Im looking for little assistance here. What am I doing wrong?


<div id="sidemenu" class="sidemenu">
<a href="#registerhere"><strong>register here</strong></a>
<hr />
<a href="#whatisincludedinthefee"><strong>what is included in the fee</strong></a>
<hr />
<a href="#onedayattendance"><strong>one-day attendance</strong></a>
<hr />
<a href="#accompanyingpersons"><strong>accompanying persons</strong></a>


defer(function () { });
var $sidemenu = $('#sidemenu');
TweenLite.from($sidemenu, 5, {opacity: 0, ease: Power4.easeIn});

Hard to say without seeing it. Posting a code snippet does not tell the whole story. Please put that in a demo.

It works on codepen if I remove defer


defer isn't a valid function, unless of course you have some script that provides a defer function. Wordpress sites have a lot of JavaScript files, and I'm not sure what you have going on with your site.

yet it doesn't work on the page:


Check your dev tools console.


Uncaught TypeError: $ is not a function


That means the $ for jQuery isn't set. That's something you'll need to fix. It's probably something with jQuery's noConflict().



This works.


var $sidemenu = jQuery('#sidemenu');
TweenLite.from($sidemenu, 5, {opacity: 0, ease: Power4.easeIn});



But you really don't need jQuery for that. You can pass the selector to the tween.


TweenLite.from("#sidemenu", 5, {opacity: 0, ease: Power4.easeIn});
