    Jquery conflict problem

    Asked by positpro on December 18, 2013 at 09:28 PM

    Hi Guys, I have a jquery conflict problem.

    it seems that this line: <script src="js/prototype.js?v=3.1.1444" type="text/javascript"></script>

    ... Is in conflict with my dropdown menu, and the prettyphoto extension.

    Is there a way to fix it?


    Thank you

    Sorry but I find this a little bit difficult. I think I have already tried all the solutions suggested here, but still couldn't make both to work at the same time. I will try to dig more and get back to you with updates later today.

    Hi there,

    Sorry for the delay. Finally found a fix after checking all your jQuery extensions.

    In order for the dropdown menu to work and to fix the conflict, you have to make a little changes on this file: http://orangewebdesign.ca/positpro/js/superfish.js

    At the bottom part, you'll see this code:




    Then, replace it with the following:

    var $j = jQuery.noConflict();




    Assigning a new variable for the alias $ should fixed it. You can also replace the other plugins like the pretty photo so it does not conflict with the form. Example:


    Here's a working demo: https://shots.jotform.com/elton/jqueryConflict_test.html

    Good thank you very much.

    I'm not sure I understand the way to do it, but I copied and pasted the demo, and now it works.

    You guys rock!!!

    This is not a fix of your form it is just unacceptable from JotForm that is causes issues like this that mean I have to rewrite a lot of my code for every site I do. Very frustrating and generally poor development by Jotform

    You simply need to run whatever version of Jquery you're running in no conflict mode. Here's some instructions.
