This question already has an answer here:

I want to use JQuery in magento. When I included JQuery in the code, Prototype is throwing errors at this line.

This error is causing because Jquery and Prototype is getting conflict.You need to solve this conflict.

1) Create one js file called noConflict.js with the following content.

var jQuery = $.noConflict();

and include this file after your jquery.js

2) And you can use this jquery wih the following code

<script type="text/javascript">
        // your code    

P.S. for more information on solving jquery conflict refer http://magento-online-tutorials.blogspot.in/2015/10/how-to-solve-jquery-and-prototype.html

  • instead of creating a new file can't I add the $.noConflict(); in my code directly – Strikers Mar 12 '15 at 7:13
