jQuery oddity in Wordpress
I'm very confused as to why because I cannot find anywhere in the response from the server where the instruction to load Prototype is coming from; there is no <script> tag in the head or body that points to the library, and Firebug's list of loaded scripts does not include it. Has anyone else encountered this issue, and if so where is Prototype hiding?
After having an idea, I tried something - the $ and $$ behavior is part of Wordpress's copy of jQuery 1.4.2: Loading the script from Google's CDN resolved the problem. So the new question is, "Why does Wordpress jQuery differ from normal jQuery?"
"Why does Wordpress jQuery differ from normal jQuery?"
WordPress loads jQuery in no conflict mode - another script on the page must've been tinkering with the $ surely?
