Topic: MDB scripts conflict with WordPress

forester pro asked 7 years ago

Hello! MDB scripts (mdb.js) try to use global var $, which might not be defined globally in WordPress environment. To resolve this issue i've temporary wrapped whole mdb.js contents into (function ($) { /* your scripts here */ }(jQuery));. Do you have any other suggestions? Kind regards! Artem

I fixed the issue on my theme by loading the jquery version 2.2.3. Hope this helps for those who are facing this issue. Cheers, Reland

Unfortunately we didn't release a new version with that fix yet. We apologize for the delay. In a very short time, our project has grown very quickly and we are overloaded with the work. We are currently enlarging the team to provide our users the best possible support and in the same time develop MDB. Thank you for your patience.

Hi @forester , Could you mail me your wp template? We didn't face that issue while creating other wp templates with MDB, I would like to have a closer look at this issue. Could you mail me at ? Thanks

Hello, Dawid! Definitely i have. Everything works good after script modification described above. But i don't want do modifications in your scripts. I just mean that for using jQuery in WordPress we need to wrap scripts in construction above. Like described in docs Otherwise we'll get an error that variable $ is not defined. So, i have to modify mdb.js and wrap its contents into construction above, to ensure that $ is defined and means jQuery. But i believe that there should be a better solution, without modifing your scripts. That's why i ask. Regards! Artem
