This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

Mootools Libraries


Enable mootools 1.2.x or later version in a flexible way. Featuring for clientcide and mediaboxAdvance.

The main purpose of the plugin is to correctly register mootools libraries into wordpress handle. You can use this handle anywhere later in your plugins, shortcodes or templates.

This system plugin target is for running mootools in front-end only. This is basically only registering script and styles into the system. Thus, you still have to download recent mootools manually.

Currently supported script are

  • mootools-core
  • mootools-more
  • clientcide
  • mediabox-advance

Currently supported style is

  • mediabox-advance

This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.


  1. Upload plugin-name.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Put your mootools-core and mootools-more in a directory. e.g. /wp-includes/js/mootools.
  4. Configure plugin from DashboardSettingsPlugin: Mootools. It is self explanatory.
  5. Now you can insert wp_enqueue_script('mootools-core'); in your script anytime you need.


How do I know that this is actually works.

Check the page source if the desired script loaded, use Ctrl-U in firefox.

How do I use shortcode function in your code.

This two shortcodes are actually hidden features it needs special theme.

You can put shortcode [mediabox-advance] to activate mediabox in a post on supported template. But you must run the loop before wp_head();.

You can obtain this by grab the loop into php output buffer ob_get_contents() and dump it later after wp_head.
