Topic: Switching from development to production in rails 3.2.6

I have rails app which uses Rails 3.2.6 & Ruby 1.9.3p0 version.I have number of CSS & JS(using JQuery) files in my assets folder with assets pipeline.Everything works fine but I switch from development to production with compression to single file named application.css & application.js then my most of JQuery code don't working.I have open discussion on  but doesnot help much. I have tried my solution present but nothing helps me.

Please help.Thanks in advance.

Re: Switching from development to production in rails 3.2.6

In your application.rb, below the enable asset pipeline, set config.assets.initialize_on_precompile to true.
