Magento jQuery

Magento jQuery

Providing you have had some experience with Magento stores you may know that Magento relies heavily on prototype.js and it can be a tricky task to use jQuery along with it.

 

Portotype.js has a variable $ registered for itself, so when one calls jQuery with $, jQuery tries to register this very variable for oneself causing a conflict with prototype.js.

 

So what can be done about it?

 

Instead of calling jQuery with $, to avoid any possible conflicts with prototype.js, one can use the following method:

 

var $j = jQuery.noConflict();

 

Compatibility mode implies the use of $j (a reference to jQuery.noConflict();) instead of $ to call the jQuery.

 

Please note:

It is strongly advised to call first for Prototype and then jQuery.

 

If you are not sure or feel that you are lacking coding experience we advice referring to a developer team that will assist you with the task.
