Hi all,
I have a problrm running any jQuery on my  WordPress plug-in writing? Even running a simple jQuery effect like following doesn’t work.
No alert message popup. The same code is working normally  in single HTML page.
Does anyone know why is this happening and how can I solve it? Please help

Never use jQuery handy function $() in WordPress plugin. You have to use jQuery() or jQuery.noConflict() to work between jQuery and WordPress.

In WordPress, $( ) syntax is always used by other scripting library, causing a conflict issue and failing to call the jQuery function. You should use jQuery() instead
you can also use noConflict() …
// Use jQuery via $j(...)
