Happy to hear you have resolved the issue.
In order to have jQuery included in your page use the following code:
<%@ Register Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI" TagPrefix="sf" %>
<sf:ResourceLinks id="resourcesLinks" runat="server">
Please try to move the part with the script registration at the bottom of the master page - before the closing form tag
. The ones that do not rely on jQuery can still be kept in the head.
Keeping the scripts at the bottom will make the pages load faster from user's perspective. This "effect" is due to the fact that the while the browsers are loading scripts the others calls (images/css/etc) are being postponed.
