Core Enhancements, Performance

Mootools is loaded by default in Joomla! 2.5.x. This plugin gives you the control of when is loaded Mootools. Disable Mootools for all your website except for specified items or just enable for all except for specified items.


  • Save up to 600KB per page load
  • Choose the default Mootools mode between enabled or disabled
  • Add exceptions directly from menú entries
  • Allows the user to add scripts to disable.
  • Nulls any window.addEvent calls.
  • Removes JCaption calls
  • Autoenable mode for content edition.
  • Autoenable mode by component ( thanks Hans Kuijpers!).
  • Autoenable mode for frontend com_users.
  • Joomla! 3.0 compatible.

Install / Configure:

  1. Download the ZIP file on the right panel
  2. Install it in your Joomla! through Extension Manager
  3. Go to Extensions > Plug-in manager and search a plugin called "System - Mootools Enabler/Disabler". Click it to enable / configure the plugin and select the desired default mode.
  4. In your menu entries you will see now a new panel called: Mootools enable/disable. Use it to specify if Mootools has to be enabled/disabled in this item.

Autoenabled components не винаги дава очакваните резултати. Вижте по-скоро в менютата къде искате mootools и го разрешете само там.
Ease of use
Лесна употреба.
Не е бил нужен.
Няма много, но и не е нужна. Вижте блога на автора, защо е хубаво да се изключва mootools.
I've tried another plugin and editing the index.php and head.php but these did not remove the js error showing up in the console. But this plugin did, straight-off. Enough said. If you need to disable mootools or, at least, control their application this will do it.
Great, handy plugin.

I was trying to unset(...); mootools on my template, but it was being added again buy some extension's helper.

Tried the plugin and job was done.

Maybe a feature request would be the ability to also disable the system's jquery-migrate and system's jquery.min.

Perfect so far.

Thanks for the work
comparison method of unsetting mootools in index.php, this is much, much better. Because it is more than likely, that once you realize, that you need mootools on some site. And then you can allow it only for that particular site with Enabler/Disabler.
Great plugin, fast and easy. Install, enable and the mootools libraries disappeared


Thanks to developer!!!

This plugin is great. It resolved a scripting error and provided a significant improvement in performance.

I highly recommend using this for Joomla 3.x websites that rely on jQuery over Mootools.

excellent plugin

it does what it promises ,,,excellent little plugin,,thank you so much for this excellent free plugin,,i wish you more success :) best regards
This plugin solves one of the serious problems of Joomla, the coexistence of mootools and jQuery. Until disappears from the core, this plugin is for my mandatory installation.

Besides the care of the code, ease of installation and its noncommercial character are super!

I was having issues with Mootools causing Disqus problems.. installed and activated no more problems.. easy and smooth, that's the way I like it!

My pages averaged roughly 600 or 700k. Just on a lark I installed this plug in. There was a menu that needed mootools but after switching back to the default Joomla menu, now my pages average around 200k or so.
