View the source:

You are loading JS Code in the footer that calls jQuery before the jQuery file is loaded. Your jQuery is loading from a CDN, which makes me think you are trying to roll your own.

Playlists won't load if your own JS breaks the page first.

Not sure what you mean. I don't use CDN as far as I know.

A snippet from your source:

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(document).on( 'ready post-load', function(){
	jQuery( 'a.share-linkedin' ).on( 'click', function() { jQuery(this).attr( 'href' ), 'wpcomlinkedin', 'menubar=1,resizable=1,width=580,height=450' );
		return false;
<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
<link rel='stylesheet' id='mediaelement-css'  href='' type='text/css' media='all' />
<link rel='stylesheet' id='wp-mediaelement-css'  href='' type='text/css' media='all' />
<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>
<script type='text/javascript' src=''></script>

I can confirm you have multiple "jQuery is not defined" errors on your page.

Please try the support forums if you need further assistance.

Thanks a lot.

But unbelievable difficult stuff for the user. I hope Wordpress gets easier for the end user. This kind of trouble is a deal breaker for most I guess. For me also.

The problem here is that you use most likely a plugin that loads jquery from a CDN. WordPress gives that power to developer and because of that you can do a lot with WordPress.

Unsure if restricting it on the frontend is the right thing to do but that said we do however do it in the admin.

I disabled all plugins: still not working.

It can be anything really. What somebody like me wants is a user friendly system. On the support forum they told me I should open a trac. And here on trac they tell me to ask on support...

Maybe this is extremely difficult to solve. No problem. I will not use the playlist functionality. Soundcloud I'm using most of the time.

Replying to Marco Raaphorst:

I disabled all plugins: still not working.

  1. You're running WP Super Cache, so make sure to clear the cache before disabling it.
  2. Does it still happen with a default theme (Twenty Fourteen or Twenty Thirteen)?

switched the theme and that solved it. loved the simple theme though, but it's not good. thanks!
