Is it possible to avoid JQuery Clashes?

Over time I have accumulated a number of collections of JQuery code to do all manner of things.

I have discovered that some of the JQuery interferes with other JQuery and results in one of the JQuery Objects/Libraries not working.

Is there a way to avoid this?

I suggest looking into jQuery's noConflict mode:

it is also used for multiple versions of jquery:

If for some reason two versions of jQuery are loaded (which is not recommended), calling $.noConflict( true ) from the second version will return the globally scoped jQuery variables to those of the first version.

jQuery,noConflict refers to conflict between jQuery and other javascript framwork, such as Prototype or MooTools.

I used jQuery.Migrate.js to solve problems deriving me from code written using different versions of jQuery, so I think you could try to download it and include it in each page where you use your scripts: maybe it can help you to avoid problems (but I'm not sure about).

Thanks for your help, I was able to use JQuery noConflict, and found that the placement of it was important to ensure it worked.

Thanks.

I''m glad you solved your problem, but can you explain the reason of the downgrade?
You can read here the guidelines of answers' grading: http://support.experts-exchange.com/customer/portal/articles/481419.

As you can rad there, the default grade is excellent and you must have good reasons to downgrade a solution: for instance, if experts solutions solve your problem but they are not the solution you expected, this is not a valid reason to downgrade their help.
In other words, when you downgrade an answer, you're saying that expert has done a bad job, its solution is deficient and h could had done more to help you. If all this is not tru, it sounds rather offensive for someone who tried to help you, isn'it?

So, please, if you have a valid reason to downgrade our answers, explain them here, otherwise request attention to a moderator using the link below your question box and ask him to change the grade.

Cheers
Marco
