Hello,

I would like to load javascript (jquery) only once and use it in more than one plugin.
I could set this in the layout but how to make this possible with multi layout compatibility?

Thanks,

This is how I'm doing it with my two jQuery plugins:
in plugin_getheadercode_pluginName
php -
Text Formatted Code

if(!defined('JQUERY')){
    $headerText .= '<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>'."\n";
    define('JQUERY', 'true');
}
 


Also we have to use jQuery in compatibility mode especially if we are dealing with mootools as well:
javascript-
Text Formatted Code

if(jQueryNoConflict == undefined){
    jQuery.noConflict();
    var jQueryNoConflict = true;
}
 


If we all do this, our plugins will play well together.

Thank you, it is a good way.

Could we choose and use a shortcut for all Geeklog plugins
Text Formatted Code
 $j = jQuery.noConflict();

or do we have to use "jQuery" when you do some work with jQuery?

Ben,
Part of using jQuery in noConflict mode relinquishes the dollar sign($) so if any other library is using it they don't conflict.

Yes, so as plugin developpers for Geeklog, we could plan to use a new shortcut as $j or do you prefere to use the complete word "jQuery".
We had to decide it now to armonise each others and to avoid any conflict between our plugins. Then, every new plugin developper for Geeklog will be encourage to use the same shortcut.

Text Formatted Code
        if(!defined('JQUERY')){
        $str .= '<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.0/jquery.min.js"></script>'. LB;
                $str .= '<script>
    if(jQueryNoConflict == undefined){
    $j = jQuery.noConflict();
    var jQueryNoConflict = true;

    // Use jQuery via $j(...)
    $j(document).ready(function(){
    $j("div#box").hide();
    });

    }
</script>'. LB;
        define('JQUERY', 'true');
    }


Thanks,

Let's not re-invent the wheel, jQuery is standard for many developers.
