Has anyone had any major difficulties on using JQuery Tools? I cannot find any documentation on this - more specifically the Flowplayer module... Basically would like some guidance as to how I should go about using such libraries with SS.

Many thanks

Shouldn't be a problem - have you had any problems with it?
SS comes with some jquery libraries (sapphire/thirdparty/..), you could use these by default.

My preference is to link to the latest version hosted on Google though.

Thanks Ryan
What do I do with something more bespoke like JQuery Tools or Flowplayer - do I add them to the /thirdparty? As I said before, I cannot seem to find any documentation on this subject.

Many thanks for your help :)

Don't put them in sapphire or cms, keep all your javascript either in mysite/javascript or themes/yourtheme/javascript/ (or thirdparty) and link to it using <% require javascript(path/to/your/file.js) %> in your template.

Thanks Willr, that's what I was looking for.
