- This extension requires registration to download.
WHAT IT DOES OUT-OF-THE BOX
- calls jQuery and jQuery UI libraries from the Google CDN (with or without protocol) - but you can do it locally too,
- places jQuery libraries after MooTools calls for perfect compatibility,
- adds the noConflict() code alongside the jQuery library call,
- strips out extra jQuery and jQuery UI libraries, including the noConflict() calls added by other modules or plugins,
- lets you choose jQuery UI basic styling or custom theme.
WHAT YOU CAN TWEAK
- disable MooTools libraries tentatively in the frontend,
- enable or disable the plugin in specific portions of the site, from template to single page,
- use reporting to get feedback on what the plugin engine has done,
- add or remove scripts and stylesheets,
- strip blank lines left by the modifications made to the page,
- prevent some libraries to be stripped out,
- modify the way the engine works by default (do not add or remove noConflict() code...),
Try the new jQuery Easy Profiles for Joomla! 3+ (beta) that allows multiple configurations to work seamlessly for different parts of a site. More information on the website's owner.
For example: jquery-ui/themes/base/css is not hosted on Google anymore so you may try Smoothness or etc
I found better performance with 2.1.0 but maybe its my imagination as there are no api changes recently.
What I would like from jQueryEasy is to have option to lot the libraries from Microsoft or maxcdn or etc just as a backup plan....
but you did a great job
Thank you very much for your review and your comments, it is really appreciated.
I have thought adding the possibility to choose between different CDNs before but the problem is that they do not always propose all the libraries. For instance, Google does not propose 'migrate' (or even gave up base.css as you noticed and as stated in the plugin's documentation). But I am still considering this feature for a further version.
I was dong a web search and came across this great plugin. It solved all the issues I was having. Thanks so much for making it available. I left a little donation I was so happy.
Thank you so much for your review and for showing your appreciation. Hopefully more and more developers will be using good practice when it comes to implementing jQuery...
Thanks for the review, I am delighted it helped you out. You have to realize that the loading of MooTools has been removed from Joomla! starting version 3.2.2. I am still investigating it and what are the implications on a plugin like jQuery Easy.
No developer is fantastic at everything, so to build a fantastic Joomla! site you must combine the best extensions you can get, best slideshow, best menu, best this and that. Result, best jQuery conflict :(
Solution jQuery Easy :)
In layman's language
You want to combine the engine of a Ferrari, the body of a Benz, the power of a Range Rover into one car. Jquery easy is you chop shop.
Thanks so much for the review, I do appreciate it!
I can honestly say that this plugin has by far increased my productivity than any other. I just don't have to spend the time debugging script conflicts, I can get on with what I should be doing, developing sites.
The documentation on the site is good, and I would recommend people read it, as you will need to use the advanced options if you have a decent amount of plugins on a site.
I cannot comment on support as I've not had to use it.
With new jQuery libraries and plugin coming out all the time, I encourage the developers to continue to keep this plugin up-to-date as it is truly a huge productivity tool.
Wow. Thank you very much for giving this plugin such an 'in-depth' review. This feedback is important and really well appreciated. It shows it has been able to reach its target! Thank you!
Well, thank you very much for the review!
I had a jQuery conflict with the Simple Spotlight module and something else (possibly Gantry/Afterburner 2). This plugin solved it!
I agree. But the blame should be on developers who do not properly handle jQuery. Starting with Joomla! 3, things should get better as extensions will embrace the new jQuery library calls now part of the framework... Let's hope for the best :-)
I use it on many client websites if they experience conflicts and 100% of the time the plugin gets rid of the conflicts! This saves an enormous amount of time on troubleshooting.
Thank you very much for this great plugin!

You are welcome Roy, thank you very much for your feedback and this review!
Thank you very much! It is always great to see that a substential number of jQuery issues can be resolved without manual interaction with the code. I appreciate the review!
