I would like to install the cookie plugin from http://plugins.jquery.com/project/cookie, but I am loading jQuery from Google http://code.google.com/apis/ajaxlibs/documentation/index.html#jquery, so is there a way to use the cookie plugin while still using googles jQuery?

You might be happy to know that jQuery plugins are simply a matter of including the Javascript file for it.

<script src="jquery.cookie.js"></script>

Make sure you include the script after you've included jQuery. So in order of preference jQuery should be included first and then the plugin afterwards.

And if you're including jQuery from Google it's absolutely fine. As long as jQuery is being included okay, it's all good. Just include any jQuery plugin as you would jQuery itself!

so what does it mean , when after doing the specified, i get
function (selector, context) {
    return new (jQuery.fn.init)(selector, context);

instead of getting a cookie value ( var nFrom = $.cookie('nId'); )

a complete reload of a page (ctrl +f5) fixed it
