Depending on what device you are using to test, the problem might be the CSP.
BTW: jQuery Mobile is not a jQuery search engine. Rather, it's a UI extension for jQuery, which allows for many clever UI elements to be used. It supports nice page transitions, a one-page architecture and navigation/stacking by ajax automatically.
Im using a windows phone to test it. CSP? Gonna do a search on that but in the mean time could shed some more light on that? What is CSP?
CSP is short for "content-security-policy", and is specified by a meta tag.
What version of Windows Phone are you testing on?
I'm using Windows Phone 8.1, Nokia Lumia 521. Okay I see. So what would be the code I would use to implement CSP properly in the meta tag? Oh and just to be sure, Jquery works with phone gap right?
Yes, jQuery works fine in a Phonegap built app (NOT in/with 'Phonegap', because that's just the build tool).
And information about CSP is found in the whitelist plugin docs, which also links to the official CSP documentation.
