Add a simple jquery script to my joomla 2.5 site

Post by xbass540 » Thu Mar 23, 2017 8:40 pm

i am trying to add some jquery script in my 2.5 web site
i would expect to add some

Code: Select all

< scr.. src="....."></script>
in the index.php file of my template or so but looks like this is not the case.

i read https://docs.joomla.org/Adding_JavaScript but couldn't resolve the way to do it.

Any ideas very welcome.

p.s. i have removed some markup for the forum to let me post this

Rather than editing index.php directly, it is probably better to use a third party extension or similar to add the script text so that changes aren't overwritten by future updates.

I like EasyScript https://extensions.joomla.org/extension ... easyscript but there are plenty of similar extensions to choose from at https://extensions.joomla.org/category/ ... ntegration

hi,
i can't find any for joomla 2.5, and one i found sourcerer asks for payment for js.
i cant buy it before i try it...

I add <scr... src="js/myjs.js" ></scr....> on the head of my template's index.php and it doesn't "see" it.

also added

<scr.... type="text/javascript" src="<?php echo $this->baseurl; ?>/templates/<?php echo $this->template; ?>/js/myjs.js"></scr....>

Do you see the script in the Source Code of the Rendered Page?

What triggers the execution of the script?
