Incompatibility with WP Video Lightbox.
By , for WP 4.5.3

No support when I looked for help.

Website down
By , for WP 4.4.1

After activating JQuery Updater it took down the website immediately. There was no progress bar or whatsoever, so I removed the plug-in over SSH. Too bad.

Now it works with WP4.4.1 and plugin v2.2.0.1

Confusing
By , for WP 4.2.2

There's absolutely no interface to control what the plug-in does. It probably does what it says, but it made my meta slider crash. If I had control on which version of jQuery is loaded, I'd actually know if it's not compatible with the last version, but the only thing I know is that disabling this plug-in made it come back.

Resolved my BPS issue
By , for WP 4.2.2

I had installed BPS (Bulletproof Security) and it downgraded my jquery causing some JS files to not respond. Activated this, worked back to it's original state.

Does what it says, but would love to see more
By , for WP 4.0.1

So first of, great plugin. It does exactly what it says - install, activate and you're done. However, I've given it 4 stars because I'd like to see three settings added. I appreciate the simplicity of not having any options at all, but I think the settings I have in mind would not hurt the ease of use for inexperienced users, but for others would be very handy.

So the three options I'd love to see are:

1) A checkbox for enabling/disabling jquery migrate. It's very easy to remove in code (which is what I did), but a checkbox that would remove the need to edit source code would be very useful.

2) An easy way (say a dropdown) to switch which version of jquery (and by extension jquery migrate if enabled) to use. The plugin already includes a whole bunch of older jquery versions so why not let us easily choose the versions we want to use from the admin panel. Again, it's easy to do in code, but a setting would be even nicer.

3) Lastly, yet again something we can do in code, but would be nice to have. I'd love to have an easy way to switch between minified and unminified version of jquery. I realize there are other plugins that already take care of that, but they usually include a whole bunch of other things I don't need. Adding this to this lightweight plugin would be great.

A Hail Mary Pass!

I was having jquery conflicts between my theme and two different plugins. Not being a coder, I had no clue how to fix the problem. I was snooping around google and was not liking what I saw - having to delve into coding, or worse, switching themes and plugins again!

I came across this plugin and I figured it was a Hail Mary Pass. But, once I installed it, it fixed all the conflicts I was having!

It's worth a try!

Good luck!

Hi,

I had jQuery version 1.7.1 and installed your lovely plugin but it didn't install the latest jQuery version 1.11.1 and instead 1.10.3.

Please advise :)
