Submenu doesn't work

Zachary88 10 Mar, 2015
Hello Community,

I think chronoform is a great extension. But now I have a problem: I have a submenu under "Verfahren", if I go to the page "Kontakt" (there is the form) the submenu doesn't work anymore...

domain removed

Do you have an idea to solve the problem?

Hi Zach,

There are a couple of JavaScript errors on the page which I suspect are because both MooTools and jQuery are being loaded and $ is not cleanly defined.

Which version of Joomla! is this?

Hello Bob,

it's Joomla!-Version 3.4.0

Hi Zachary,

Then you shouldn't need MooTools loaded. Can you update the components that are using it?

The problem may be because ChronoForms loads it's own version of jQuery and that isn't being put into No Conflict mode. You can try a different form template and see if that fixes it; if not, then I use the jQueryEasy component to clean up the jQuery loading.

Hi Bob,

I do not know MooTools. How do I know which components to use MooTools? I'm a greenhorn ... So if I want to continue with the template I need to install jQueryEasy and clean it up, right?

Hi Zach,

MooTools and jQuery are two different JavaScript libraries. Until Joomla! 2 MooTools was used in the core of Joomla! with occasional jQuery add-ons. By Joomla! 3 the position has reversed and jQuery is the core library.

Unfortunately when you run both they can conflict. There are way to prevent or manage the conflicts and the Joomla! core does that OK but not all Joomla! extensions do - and in Joomla! 3 they tend to assume that MooTools will not be loaded.

I can't tell what is causing MooTools to be loaded on your site - I can see the files, and the error messages which are the kind I would expect from a conflict with JQuery.

Yes, do try jQueryEasy as it seems to do a good job of handling these files.

Hi Zach,

I don't see any changes on the Kontakt page :-( The same JavaScript errors are there.

As your site appears to be running in an iFrame I have no real idea what is being used.

Hi Bob,

I had disabled the plugin again. I had right after an SQL error (whether it has to do with it?). For you I enable it again, now without SQL error... so you can look at the code. Thanks a lot for your help!!

Please test using a different Joomla template.

Did you try ChronoMyAdmin for managing your Joomla database tables ?
