Strategy for troubleshooting JS conflicts? (5 posts)

    I am using the theme Tabula Rosa and the plugin Category Grid View Gallery. http://dstollart.thatiam-online.com

    Normally, Tabula Rosa implements an expanding menu on hover (over parent menu item). When CGView is activated, the menu expands only if there is a gallery on the page displayed. If there is not a gallery, the menu shows only top-level items. (I put an empty gallery shortcode into my home page just so that the menu would work.)

    I'm assuming it's a JS problem. When I delete the CGView.js file from the plugin folder, the menu works correctly regardless of the page.

    Not being familiar with JS code/syntax, I cannot figure out what lines or functions are clashing.

    Is there a debugging tool that will tell me where the conflict is? Or is there a troubleshooting procedure that will help me identify the problem?

    Q: Is the contact and support for these WordPress or the developers?

    A: I suggest the latter and to use well trusted themes and plugins only.

    You seem to want to suggest that these are not well-trusted code or developers. The theme, maybe not. But I've spent hours looking for a theme with that menu functionality and with a vertical left-hand menu. I could take a more trusted theme and hack it, but I'm not sure that would be any more reliable than Tabula Rosa.

    The author for the plugin at least seems to be more involved and responsive, having a recent update of the plugin and regular support responses. Again, I've searched for hours for a gallery that grabs images on the fly based on category or tag, so that the gallery itself doesn't have to be edited when adding images. Category Grid View Gallery is the only one I've found.

    I'm not afraid of tweaking css and even the html/php on a theme or plugin. I do count on developers for good security, compatibility, and integrability. I'm willing to risk a less-known developer or code (after all, how does one become trusted otherwise) here in the initial design and test stages. I won't hesitate to change themes or plugins if I find better offer that does what I need it to do.

    I guess I could reword and say "Use very popular and well used themes and plugins only" You will have less issues in the long run.

    Darn, Seacoast Web Design, I thought you were going to suggest a very popular and well-used theme that fit my needs!
