How do I tell my jquery script to use something else than $ ?

Do I have to change all the $ to _$ ?

This is my script

$(document).ready(function() {
$('.slideshow').cycle({
fx: 'fade',
timeout: 6000
});
});

Hi,

try this in your script:

(function($) {
	
    $(document).ready(function(){
		// your jquery awesomeness.
    })

})(jQuery);

more info here: http://doc.silverstripe.org/javascript

Cheers,
Christian

Or use JQuery.NoConflict

To expand on biapar's reply, something like this will stop your custom scripts from interfering with other scripts already using the $ namespace / function:

$.noConflict();

jQuery(document).ready(function() {
jQuery('#myid').click(....)
});
