View Full Version : conflict between Accordion Content script & Lightbox JS v2.0

1) Script Title:
Accordion Content
2) Script URL (on DD):
3) Describe problem:
I use both these scripts. Separately they work just fine, but togheter on the same page... the Lightbox wont work. This is from Firebug:
element.style has no properties
[Break on this error] element.style.width = w +"px";

This sounds like a conflict between the jQuery library used by the first script, and Prototype used by the second. If so, what you can do is follow the same procedure I mentioned in this thread (http://www.dynamicdrive.com/forums/showthread.php?t=29309). Specifically, inside ddaccordion.js, first do a search and replace, by replacing all occurences of $ with $j. Then, and only then, add the below to the top of the file:

var $j = jQuery.noConflict()

Please start a new thread for a new question. Your problem may appear to be the same as someone else's, but may not be. Follow the directions for creating a new thread by including links to the script(s). Also, a link to your page can help speed up the process, as we often will need that anyway.
