4 years ago
Dear Team Jetpack,
Here’s the situation: my main navigation works as it should on the home page. In particular, notice in the dropdown menu under “Academics” that there is a submenu:
However, whenever I go to any page that is NOT the home page, the “Academics” dropdown menu is broken:
When I deactivate “Jetpack,” it returns to normal.
I had a look at your site, and it seems to be loading an old version of jQuery UI, instead of using the version that comes bundled with WordPress.
This old version of jQuery UI seems to be loaded by your theme, but it could also be loaded by one of your plugins, and will indeed cause conflicts with WordPress and with other plugins.
Could you remove the function loading this old library?
Thank you very much for your help! Where do you see the old version of jQuery loaded in the code? Is this something I can see using the Developer tools in Safari? Also, why would that override what should be loaded with WordPress?
The problem was the “TheThe Tabs and Accordions” plugin.
