Hi

The version of jQuery shipped with the latest download is only v1.4.2.

jQuery v7.x is a major release. Could you make the CMS compatible with 1.7.x because that version causes CMS functionality to fail when overwriting the original source files with he latest jQuery file?

Version 1.7.x will be required for things such as Fancybox 2 etc...

Thanks

Hi Johan,

thanks for posting your input, but if you would like to influence dev descisions at silverstripe, rather than ask for help
please raise the issue on open.silverstripe.org or https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups#!forum/silverstripe-dev

Also note there is nothing to stop you using the jQuery you wish in "non-conflict" mode to achieve your goals I think

non-conflict is not designed to do that so i am not sure you can. Anyone?

OK, I'll reword that a bit...

you are not going to get the CMS using a different version of jQuery (without a large effort)
but you can use anyversion of jQuery in "non-conflict mode" in order to use a certain library needed that version so it doesn't conflict with the version the CMS is using

But again if you want the CMS to use a differetn version of jQuery I advise you join the dev group and put forward your suggestion there

What version of jQuery the CMS uses and what version the front end of the website uses can be completely different.

Do not overwrite the CMS version of jquery, or any other CMS files. You should not be changing (or adding) any files inside the cms or sapphire directories.

Put your javascript inside mysite/javascript and include that. That way you can use whatever version you want.
