Although var $j = jQuery.noConflict(); is included in the head, installing new module can make js problem in other 3rd-party module. How to avoid this?

1 Answer 1


First, you should make sure that you have connected only one jQuery library, because third-party modules usually connects their own jQuery library, which is not necessary.

Second, if you are using the expression

var $j = jQuery.noConflict();

you need to make sure that all the modules are using alias $j instead of $ to call jQuery. I would recommend you to use more simple structure after connecting jQuery library: $.noConflict(); and use alias $.

  • Considering the code in ../d1/search.phtml---> <input name="shipping_method" type="radio" value="itellaSmartPost" id="s_method_itellaSmartPost"<?php if("itellaSmartPost"===$this->getAddressShippingMethod()) echo ' checked="checked"' ?> class="radio"/> and the code in /d1/search/result.phtm --> function updatePointValue(e) { var pointValue = $('smartpost_select_point').getValue(); $(s_method_itellaSmartPost).value = pointValue; ....still I get the error undefind varibale for "s_method_itellaSmartPost" in IE ! Do you think it's due to conflict issu?

  • @Zinat We believe that it isn't connected with jQuery conflict, if you don't see this problem in other browsers.
