jQuery Question

Rails: Javascript not working in Production

So far here's what I've done.

  1. I loaded assets in the Capfile: js still not working

  2. I moved coffee-rails from the assets to the main section: still not working

    gem 'coffee-rails', '~> 3.2.1'

    group :assets do
    gem 'sass-rails', '~> 3.2.3'


<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html"; charset=utf-8" />
<title> -</title>
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<script src=""></script>

<link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
<link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

<script src="//" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link rel="shortcut icon" href="favicon.ico" />
<link href="/assets/" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="/assets/jquery.jplayer.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" />

As you can see I'm not even getting most of the stuff from Assets. It just won't load. Not even from an external site. The one thing I am getting from assets says that it's not found. But I don't see why the other two scripts aren't being loaded...

UPDATE: Production Environment

LiquidAdmin::Application.configure do
# Settings specified here will take precedence over those in config/application.rb

# Code is not reloaded between requests
config.cache_classes = true

# Full error reports are disabled and caching is turned on
config.consider_all_requests_local = false
config.action_controller.perform_caching = true
Paperclip.options[:command_path] = "/usr/bin/"
# Disable Rails's static asset server (Apache or nginx will already do this)
config.serve_static_assets = false

# Compress JavaScripts and CSS
config.assets.compress = true

# Don't fallback to assets pipeline if a precompiled asset is missed
config.assets.compile = false

# Compress JavaScripts and CSS
config.assets.compress = true

# Don't fallback to assets pipeline if a precompiled asset is missed
config.assets.compile = false

# Generate digests for assets URLs
config.assets.digest = true

# Defaults to nil and saved in location specified by config.assets.prefix
# config.assets.manifest = YOUR_PATH

# Specifies the header that your server uses for sending files
# config.action_dispatch.x_sendfile_header = "X-Sendfile" # for apache
# config.action_dispatch.x_sendfile_header = 'X-Accel-Redirect' # for nginx
# Force all access to the app over SSL, use Strict-Transport-Security, and use secure cookies.
# config.force_ssl = true

# See everything in the log (default is :info)
# config.log_level = :debug

# Prepend all log lines with the following tags
# config.log_tags = [ :subdomain, :uuid ]

# Use a different logger for distributed setups
# Enable locale fallbacks for I18n (makes lookups for any locale fall back to
# the I18n.default_locale when a translation can not be found)
config.i18n.fallbacks = true

# Send deprecation notices to registered listeners
config.active_support.deprecation = :notify

# Log the query plan for queries taking more than this (works
# with SQLite, MySQL, and PostgreSQL)
# config.active_record.auto_explain_threshold_in_seconds = 0.5

Everything else is pretty much default/commented out

EDIT: After talking over chat, it was a problem about including jquery twice in the page.

After checking your page (, I have seen a great error imo:

<!DOCTYPE html>
  <link href="/assets/application-c9ed21e2be2e7bb9955d6a0d89357d16.css" media="all" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
  <script src="/assets/application-09500810259983928e0b1b4d46b49071.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
  <meta content="authenticity_token" name="csrf-param" />
<meta content="MYdcXuDSzYg1qSHrRwx0y0VK5VmqhWmLLGiYSOX7pOI=" name="csrf-token" />
<body style="background: #FFF;">

<!DOCTYPE html>

You have the first part repeated a couple of times, rendering your html invalid.
