    Hello all!

    I’ve exhausted everything here and I’m hoping a fresh set of eyes can help!

    I have a page that has an AJAX loader and a modal but, for whatever reason, I can’t get them BOTH to work! It seems to be the positioning of the jquery library but I’m stumped.

    You’ll notice in the pages below that I simply moved the jquery call from line 20 to 42 to get either one to work.

    click on the ‘save report’ button at the bottom and you’ll see the modal
    the loading graphic doesn’t appear
    jquery on line 42

    click on the ‘job title’ in the table to sort and you’ll see the loading gif flash
    the modal doesn’t work
    jquery on line 20

    Thanks SO much…fingers crossed :)



    On test-modal.html: jQuery is included AFTER a bunch of other jQuery-dependent plugins, which causes a whole bunch of errors. I would start there. Include jQ before the plugins.

    On test-loading.html: The dollar variable ($) is used by some other function and is not used by jQuery, so no jQuery stuff that you do with $ will work there. If you want to use $ instead of using its alias, jQuery, you can achive it quite easily. If all you need is to do stuff at document ready, then replace this:

    $(document).ready(function() {

    …with this: jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

    Now you have passed jQuery to that scope as $ and it will not interfere with that other $ function.

    I don’t know how much control you have over all the other code on that site, but one solution would be to find that weird function that has hijacked the $ variable and call it something else, but then you need to fix all calls to that function to be sure that you don’t break stuff in other places.


    I will give this a try…thanks so much!



    Thanks for bailing me out Chromawoods!
