Version Control for jQuery


Version Control for jQuery is one of the easiest ways to control the version of jQuery used on your website. Whether you just want to run a stable WordPress website, or if you are a developer and want to validate compatibility on your website with the various version of jQuery, the plugin will always have the latest minified version of jQuery ready for you. By default, the files will be loaded from the fast jQuery CDN, but you will also have the option to choose cdnjs or Google CDN.

Please notice that no files are replaced, therefore deactivation of this plugin returns your site to its original state.

I inherited an older site with a theme that never got updated. Recently, some of the functions started to fail. (drop down navigation, in particular) After much searching, I thought about how the jQuery might be in conflict. This plugin immediately solved the issue and the site is back up and running smoothly. I'll clearly need to get the theme updated and all the customization carried over, but for now, this was a lifesaver! Thanks.
It's a fantastic plugin. Does almost everything I want with this. The one thing I would suggest adding is to select which CDN you would like to pull the jQuery files from (jQuery, cdnjs/CloudFlare, Google, bootcdn, etc). The reason I say this is b/c doesn't have http/2, whereas cdnjs does, and the Google one I would imagine would be using gQUIC. Also, it would be nice if you only need the slim, vs the whole, etc. Another reason is that one CDN maybe a little faster in one specific area vs another (like if you get most of your traffic from a specific area... like let's say you're a small business in MN, USA... or maybe you are a business that only works with people in Germany - and so most your traffic is there?).
This plugin just saved my theme's jQuery issue! This plugin is simple and effective
