I'm trying to embed an accordion or collapsible text script to my google site, and i'm getting the following error.

failed to load external url jquery.js

Problem is I don't understand how to make the script work, especially in the google sites environment.  This is the second time I've tried to post the request along the lines of this, and thus far no one's been able to assist.

How do I get jquery to work in google docs?
Please help - i'm about to pull my hair out!

Does Google Docs allow scripting - I don't think so.
You would need to find an alternative widget.

You can try google CDN for jquery library.


<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

After six months, I FINALLY found the answer.  Not all libraries work - for Google Sites, the older the better.  This is what made my site work:

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.5/jquery.js"></script>
