Enqueue GSAP into WordPress theme

Recommended Posts


I downloaded the member source files and have them in my theme's directory; I'm trying to enqueue to GSAP and ScrollTrigger, but not sure of the exact coding or which files in the folder I need to connect to; this is what I have, but it's not working ... thanks

function add_gsap_scripts() {

    wp_enqueue_script ( 'gsap-js' , get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/lib/gsap/minified/gsap.min.js', array( 'jquery' ), '1', true );
    wp_enqueue_style ( 'gsap-ScrollTrigger' , get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/lib/gsap/minified/ScrollTrigger.min.js', '', '1', 'all' );

    wp_enqueue_script( 'gsap-custom', get_template_directory_uri() . '/js/custom-gsap-scripts.js', array(), false, true );
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'add_gsap_scripts' );

Hi there JerryB,

I'm afraid my wordpress knowledge is a little shaky but this thread may be of use -

Hi Jerry!


I'm not familiar with WordPress. Maybe this thread will be of help? If not, try searching the forums for enqueue as it's been brought up many times before.

Thanks, yeah, I did see those, but they are using the CDN--I can get that to work--but I need to enqueue to the local file. Was hoping to find an example of that from a user. Thanks

It doesn't look they are using CDNs for every file. Here's another one.


Or maybe try asking how to load scripts through a WordPress support channel.

Ah, thanks, that looks closer; I'll play with that config

Hey Jerry,


It looks like you enqueue gsap from a child theme and then enqueue your custom-gsap-scripts.js from the parent theme.  If all the scripts are in the child theme you need to use:  get_stylesheet_directory_uri(). 


If you do not have a child theme and are modifying or building a custom theme use: get_template_directory_uri().


Check the console and make sure they are loading and you are not getting 404 errors.
