In Magento 1.9.1 and later version, just set MANAdev->Global Configuration->General->JavaScript Libraries for Store Frontend->jQuery to Do not load and Save. For 1.9.0, please contonue reading.

All MANAdev Extensions work with Magento 1.9 standard responsive theme (rwd/default). Still most of them contain dynamic Javascript features and thus require a slight modification which is described in detail in this article.

The reason is simple: some of MANAdev extension scripts are served from js directory , but Magento rwd jQuery is served from skin directory and js directory is rendered before skin directory (hence all the MANAdev Javascript files expecting jQuery to be already included do not work). In future we plan to move all our scripts to skin directory.

Modification itself is quite simple - jQuery which ships with Magento rwd theme should be disabled and instead jQuery which ships with MANAdev extension should be enabled on all frontend pages. Here is how to do it step-by-step:

  1. Open app/design/frontend/rwd/default/layout/page.xml for editing.
  2. Replace

    <action method="addItem"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/lib/jquery-1.10.2.min.js</name></action>


    <!--<action method="addItem"><type>skin_js</type><name>js/lib/jquery-1.10.2.min.js</name></action>-->
  3. Save and upload the file.
  4. Refresh Magento cache in System->Cache Management.
  5. Set System->Configuration->MANAdev->General->JavaScript Libraries for Store Frontend->jQuery to Load on all pages (minified version) and press Save config button.
