Over the past few months, a large number of users have asked my help in finding out what was wrong with their website, even after installing the jQuery Easy plugin.
In this article, I will try and address ways of fixing these issues, with the help of the plugin.
Since the plugin has been available online, many issues were presented to me and frankly, some websites can become a real mess when so many extensions use there own jQuery code. Forget about jQuery and MooTools conflicts! jQuery conflicts alone are mostly taking websites down to their knees.
Here is a case study I wanted to share, as I was researching the best way to correct such a mess, with the help of the jQuery Easy plugin. In this study, we will handle jQuery/MooTools conflicts and allow jQuery extensions to use their own variables.
jQuery v3 is the lightest, fastest version of jQuery to date, removing support to IE6-8 (like the previous 2.x branch).
The upcoming Joomla v4 will come packaged with jQuery without Migrate. If you are planning on using jQuery a little bit longer, now is the time to check your scripts.
Old scripts built for earlier versions of jQuery may 'break' with jQuery v3, but thankfully, the jQuery team has provided an updated version of the Migrate plugin to help identify compatibility issues.
If you are missing parameters in any of the modules created by Simplify Your Web (in the Joomla administrator console), you may be a victim of conflicts caused by colliding extensions.
It's been reported a few times that suddenly, after an update, fatal errors or Class not found errors can occur when accessing an extension or a page hosting a Simplify Your Web extension.
Although a major issue (since it may crash the site on some pages), it is easily fixable.
jQuery Easy Profiles is jQuery Easy's pro version. This article will show you how you can configure
jQuery Easy Profiles v2.2 (and over) to fit your needs.
While creating your Joomla! 3 site, you may run into anomalies when it comes to showing tooltips, particularly if you are loading Bootstrap and jQuery UI libraries simultaneously. Some elements may get a nice Bootstrap-like tooltip while others may get a tooltip looking like the jQuery UI theme that is used by some of your extensions. Some tooltips may not even be skinned at all. Or the tooltips may not properly show at all, the code is "broken".
This tutorial will explain what is actually happening and how you can fix and homogenize your pages with jQuery Easy Profiles.
This set of articles have been created in order to increase people's awareness about the Simplify Your Web products.
It is aiming to show how those products can be used and point out not-so-well-known functionality.
