Fix 'Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined' on WordPress Websites

Some Elementor users following my designs might come across this

Many of my designs that are taught on this website require jQuery to work properly. Sometimes, on some wordpress websites, jQuery is not enqueued properly and you will get the error 'Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined' in the Console.

wp_enqueue_script( 'jquery' );
