  • Digg Digg plugin conflicts with YooTheme’s widget kit slideshow. When I enable digg digg, the slideshow simply disappears, it’s not even in DOM model, it’s like the widgetkit plugin is not even called anymore. When I disable digg digg, everything is back to normal. Disabling “floating bar” separately doesn’t help, only the complete plugin disable.

  • Hi extesy,

    Great to hear from you and thanks a lot for the heads up on these issues. Is there any chance you could send me a screenshot of the problem and let me know which theme you are using? I will then go and setup a wordpress blog with it on my end to replicate your bug so I can fix the issue asap in a future update.

    Keen to get things working well for you as soon as possible!

    Hi LeoWid,

    The screenshot won’t help because there won’t be anything there. As I said, when diggdigg plugin is activated, widgetkit slideshow widget just disappears from page html code. Here’s my environment information for you to help with repro:

    Theme (free):
    Activated plugins: Akismet, AmazonSimpleAdmin, Category Posts in Custom Menu, Fast Secure Contact Form, Google Analytics for WordPress, SEO SearchTerms Tagging 2, Simple URLs, W3 Total Cache, Widgetkit, WordPress SEO.
    Repro: In widgetkit create a simple slideshow and add the shortcode to the home page. Without diggdigg the slideshow is visible and is working. With diggdigg, there’s no slideshow code in the html.

    I understand that there’s possibility that one of these plugins participates in the conflict, but without diggdigg everything works just fine, so diggdigg must have triggered something which causes widgetkit to stop working.

    Same Problem here with the ProductFolio-Theme. There’s a slideshow at the top ( which disappears when Digg Digg is activated.

    Any news on that topic (I downloaded the latest plugin and wordpress)?

    Hi Tobander,

    Could you just enable Digg Digg and i’ll take a look as soon as you do. I’ll see if it’s anything obvious before you disable it again.



    Okay Andrew, I enabled it. Thanks for your support.

    Tobander, it looks like your theme is including its own version of jQuery (1.2.6) while Digg Digg is enabling 1.3.2. You could look at removing your themes version of jQuery or try pasting this into your themes function.php file.


    Hey Andrew, works perfect now. So this code just prevents from loading the jquery from my server but uses instead a newer one right?

    Thanks again for your quick support.

    The code I pasted stops Digg Digg from putting in another version of jQuery so you no longer have 2 jQuery files loading on the page.Glad to hear it’s working.

    Hello Andrew,

    unfortunately it happened again. After an update of Digg Digg the slideshow at the top (

    I checked if the functions.php file of my theme got overwritten but the pice that should prevent Digg Digg from loading a second jQuery file is still in there.

    Do you got any ideas?
