Easing Slider "Lite"
[Plugin: Easing Slider] Outdated jQuery version (3 posts)

    I'm the author of Event Organiser plug-in, and some users have noticed a conflict between it and the Easing Slider plugin.

    The source of this conflict is that the Easing Slider plug-in, de-registers the jQuery version (jQuery 1.7.1 in WP3.3) that comes with WordPress and registers version 1.4.2. This causes the 'full calendar' shortcode to not render events, (I believe what ajax returns was changed in jQuery 1.5).

    Is this plug-in able to operate with (preferably) jQuery 1.7.1 or at least jQuery 1.5?

    Another solution, which would ensure greater compatability with other plugins is to register jQuery 1.4.2 as 'jquery1.4.2' rather than over-riding 'jquery'. This would also involve putting it in a no-conflict wrapper: see this post. (In practise this maybe more tricky to do in WordPress, I shall contact wp_hackers). Potentially this would allow both jQuery versions to be used and prevent conflict with other plugins.

    Many thanks,
    Stephen

    Hi Stephen,

    Sorry if this has been causing problems. Such users can just replace the jQuery file with a newer version. Shouldn't be a problem.

    Very little updates have been made to the current configuration as we are developing an entirely new update to the Easing Slider. Hopefully soon we will get it released and many of the current issues will be sorted.

    Hi Matt,
    I told the affected users to comment out the de-regestering and replacing of the default jquery. They didnt report any issues with your plug-in, so it seems it works with jQuery 1.7.1 - so it's probably best to omit those lines from your plug-in to prevent conflicts.
