Hi Team, im using MDBPro, first of all, you did a very good job! Im facing an issue were I do not understand how you normally overcome this problem. When loading my site, FF Console says:
TypeError: body is null[Weitere Informationen] mdb.js:13861:9
 Waves.init https://localhost:444/libs/js/mdb.js:13861:9
which leads to
body.addEventListener('mousedown', showEffect, false);
and finally
Waves.init = function (options) {
 var body = document.body;
so far, so good. document.body is null, thatswhy the waves method throws an exception (and mouse over waves effects do not work..)... But I am the only one who gets this error? My *.js files are loaded in html head, of course, but obviously the method is called prior the DOM has a body element. Maybe I should put the script tags into END OF body, but thats a very bad design from my point of view. Does anybody else has these problems? Whats your suggestion for this? Thanks

   <script src="/libs/js/mdb.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Try to put your js files to the end of body and let me know if problem persists

Hello, yes, as suspected this does solve the error. Nevertheless it would be much better from my point of view to have a kind of "initialization method" that can be called just after the page was build up. I dont like to have js references spread over the whole document. Best regards, VG
