[Resolved] [Plugin: Use Google Libraries] Conflict with wp-filebase

  • The problem:
    When i am logged in as admin, my plugins using jquery don’t work e.g. quick chat, lightbox plus, and even wp-filebase download tree. Only guests and regular members remain unaffected.

    When i disable wp-filebase, everything works fine.

    After speaking to the wp-filebase author, Fabian, he discovered that

    By removing the jquery-ui-tab dependency, it fixed the problem. But could not find the reason why this has been causing trouble.

    My site site loads the jQuery scripts from the google AJAX service, not from the local wordpress version, maybe thats the cause.

    Any ideas ?

    I’m a little confused. Are you using the use-google-libraries plugin? If you disable wp-filebase, everything works. If you disable theuse-google-libraries plugin does everything work?

    Is it possible that wp-filebase is registering or enqueueing something before init? If you enable WP_DEBUG use-google-libraries should log a message to that effect.

    yes disabling wp-filebase everything works.

    Because Fabian’s already removed the jquery ui tab, now everything works fine even with wp-filebase on.

    I didn’t get the chance to test if disabling the google libraries fixed it.

    If you need access to my admin, just let me know.

    Yes i was using the use-google-libraries plugin.

    If everything is working now with both plugins working I’m not sure what it is you want me to do.

    where is this wp-debug thingy ?

    Yes everything works now.

    However i am unsure whether it was proper that jquery ui tab was removed in order to make it work.

    What does jquery ui tab do exactly ?

    If it should be there, then i will need another way to go around fixing this :[

    Do you have an email ?

    In your wp-config.php you need to add:

    define('WP_DEBUG', true );

    Depending on how your server is set up you’ll either see messages on screen, or they’ll be logged to a file somewhere.

    If the other plugin is using the jQuery UI tabs plugin, then it should be there. Was the dependency replaced with something else?

    If you go ahead and disable UGL now, does everything still work, or does wp-filebase stop working?

    It could be something to do with the dependency handling (I’ve seen some strangeness with nested dependencies on WP 3.1). In that case, rather than removing the dependency on jquery-ui-tabs could you try replacing it with array('jquery-ui-tabs', 'jquery-ui-widgets', 'jquery-ui') and see if it starts working the same with or without UGL enabled? That would give me something to work with.

    I disabled the ugl and everything works.

    But that is probably because of the jquery ui tab removal thingy. Not sure where exactly, just told it was removed to fix the issue :/

    I will try talk to Fabian to reinstate the jquery ui tab, and do the fix like you suggested.

    May take a while :]

    I haven’t heard back in six months, so I’m flagging this resolved. If it’s not, let me know.
