If that's the case, then you can use jQuery here and then pass the dollar sign as an argument here. And then once you're in your anonymous function you can start doing stuff with the dollar sign again and it will work fine, you won't have to spell out jQuery every time. So just to show that this actually works, I am going to restore the original syntax and then we're going to use console.log to pass a message into the console. Now let's load this in a browser and see if it works. Okay, so here we are in Chrome. I'm going to reload this, to make sure I have the latest copy. Open up my console using command+option+i, and there we are.
Message for you sir, great. So when you're getting set to use jQuery, use this syntax to make sure that your DOM is loaded. And everything else will be taken care of for you.
