This plugin updates jQuery to the latest stable version on your website.
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.
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!
Like everyone else, I used this to get around the "blockUI" error... but due to how much support was dropped for older browsers in jQuery 2.x, I just wish this plugin had an option for saying whether you want the plugin to update to version 1.9 -or- whatever the latest 2.x build is. Most of us dont NEED to go to 2.x, just anything above v1.2.3.
One simple switch on a settings page, and this would be a 5* rating in a heartbeat!
Also, noticed a few settings pages within my area still throwing the "blockUI" error, but seemed to only be within woocommerce in my case.
