Resolve jquery conflict between slimbox and Camp26 FishEye Menu plugin?

I have a site in development using Joomla and Virtuemart. Virtuemart uses slimbox lightbox for product displays but this stops working when the Camp26 FishEye Menu is plugged in. I finally tracked it down to a jquery conflict due to them sharing $ but the fix is beyond me.

Can anyone point to a step by step solution, I’ve been unable to find one, or maybe spell it out for me?

Thanks, JJ.

We have an answer for that in our tips section. It’s the jQuery noConflict post.

Thanks Paul, but please don’t underestimate my lack of knowledge, it is deep and profound and that post loses me at ‘Load the jQuery library’, who knows how these things work under the bonnet, not me…

So, I just add this code to my ‘HEAD’ section?

<script src=“js/jquery.js”></script>

Or do I need to do something else?

That’s all you need. Once the noConflict command is given, the $ symbol is no longer used by jQuery.

You can still allow $ to be used from within a suitable enclosure though, so head along to the jQuery noConflict tips post for some more details.

Hi Paul, thanks for your help :slight_smile:
