IE 7/8 / Chrome $(window).load problem

My site is runnin fine on mac ff/safari. On pc ie 7/8 and chrome I get an error $ is not defined relating to

$(window).load(function (){}

Can anyone suggest a workaround. I chose to use window.(load) over (document).ready as I am loading in some big background images and would like them to load at the start rather than risk loading delays later.



  • make sure jQuery is loaded on your page

    if(typeof jQuery === 'undefined'){
        alert('no jQuery :(');
  • make sure the $ is available and assigned correctly
