I've added jquery 1.8.2 to both my page.xml file and the corresponding directory.. however i am still getting multiple Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined errors.

Jquery no conflict has been added.

In the page.xml file the script src is

<action method="addJs"><script>jquery-1.8.2.min.js</script></action>

and it is the first script.

    <block type="page/html_head" name="head" as="head">

<action method="addJs"><script>jquery-1.8.2.min.js</script></action>

        <action method="addJs"><script>prototype/prototype.js</script></action>

        <action method="addJs"><script>lib/ccard.js</script></action>

        <action method="addJs"><script>prototype/validation.js</script></action>


  • Looks like you're loading in Jquery twice (ajaxcart is loading it too) - one could be un-registering the other, despite them being the same versions. – Douglas Radburn Jun 18 '14 at 18:47
  • @DouglasRadburn i've disable and reenabled it with no luck – xoxoxo Jun 18 '14 at 18:48
  • Have you tried calling noConflict as soon as jQuery is loaded? The call is further down the page (and after a jQuery block of code!) – Douglas Radburn Jun 18 '14 at 18:54

Create a new .js file for eg. no-conflict.js and add the following content on it:

var $j = jQuery.noConflict();

And include your no-conflict.js just after your

<action method="addJs"><script>jquery-1.8.2.min.js</script></action> like this:

<action method="addJs"><script>no-conflict.js</script></action>

Then write your jQuery like this:

// write your code here

  • I have tried this. If i add $j(document).ready(function(){ // write your code here }); then i get $j is undefined – xoxoxo Jun 19 '14 at 13:05
  • just check in the page view source no-conflict.js is loading after the jquerylibeary – Pradeep Sanku Jun 19 '14 at 13:07
  • it is @pradeepsanku. The file containing var $j = jQuery.noConflict(); is next after jquery. The nocoflict.js gets Uncaught ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined as well – xoxoxo Jun 19 '14 at 13:09
  • which magento version you are using ? – Pradeep Sanku Jun 19 '14 at 13:13
  • Magento ver. @pradeepsanku – xoxoxo Jun 19 '14 at 13:15
