This particular site uses the Blip Slideshow plug in (because it's fed by a Picasa web rss feed) and also a jQuery powered slider. The plug in inserts the Mootools script links ahead of the jQuery ones in the header which breaks the slider. I can push the Mootools links to the footer but then Blip doesn't work. The script that calls the slider is already using jQuery no conflict - I think correctly:

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
    fx: 'fadeZoom',
    timeout: 8000,
    delay: 0,
    speed: 500,
    next: '.fp-next',
    prev: '.fp-prev',
    pager: '.fp-pager',
    continuous: 0,
    sync: 1,
    pause: 1,
    pauseOnPagerHover: 1,
    cleartype: true,
    cleartypeNoBg: true

I've read many forum answers about how to use no conflict but don't know where else it may need to be applied to resolve this. The scripts in use are: Mootools v1.3.1 jQuery v1.7.1 jquery.cycle.all I can post links or any other code that might need to be seen if someone can help sort this out.

    Hi Matt. Please read the part of the faq that tells about what's on- and what's off topic. Also please always link to the plugin code in question.

  • Hi Kaiser-This is a WP question so I thought it was on topic and didn't want to overload it with code. I'd normally link to the site but this is a production site so had to removethe offending bits.

There turned out to be 2 problems which made it a bit harder to fix. I had to move the link to the jQuery plug in that runs the slideshow (cycle.all) so it was below the Mootools and jQuery library links. And a plug in called Tabber Widgets had to be deactivated. Both were required to solve the issue.

  • Oh, mate. You should really read how to load scripts & styles and how to assign dependenices (loading orders).
