The s2 file browser is not showing up within my newly installed theme. All the research I've done points to a jquery conflict between the theme and the plugin.
From another site (about another plugin)
I've checked out your site and the problem is a jQuery conflict. In your site you have a hardcoded jQuery file of your own. The plugin can't be programmed to kill that, hence the conflict.
WP themes and plugins should not use their own jQuery files, they should refer to the jQuery files that are included as part of the WP core. If everyone does this then there would be no conflicts.
It looks like my theme calls the jquery correctly, but that it is hard coded into the plugin (isn't that a bad thing?)
So can you update the plugin? Or am I wrong and it is in fact my theme with the problem?
