Using jQuery from an external domain (3 posts)

    Hey there, I'm running WordPress 2.8.5, I've got a custom theme with a wp_enqueue_script('jquery'); in the header.php file. Works okay, but now I'm trying to get rid of all the static content on my domain and move it to a CDN, Amazon CloudFront in my case. All the custom javascripts, css and images move fine, but I can't manage to move the jQuery library by using wp_enqueue_script('jquery', 'http://s.kovshenin.com/js/jquery.js');, it's still being served from the standard wp-includes folder.. I think the handle is the problem and changing it to jquery-custom for instance would do the job, but I've got some other plugins that may be jquery dependant and define 'jquery' in the dependencies list in the wp_enqueue_script function, thus jquery will be included twice.

    Any ideas on how to fix that?
    Thanks in advanced.

    Not sure if this helps at all, but when you do..


    WordPress will check to see if it's loaded already, and if so, it doesn't included again..

    Just thought that might be worth mentioning.. :)

    Err, that actually IS my problem, I cannot define a different location for the default jquery handler, thus using jquery-custom, but that would break with scripts that depend on jquery (as a handler).
