Loading the jQuery libraries

Several versions are available for the jQuery library. Several Javascript files can be found in the jQuery library.
Therefore, the additional JavaScript libraries must be loaded. Two methods are available:
  • include the JavaScript load code in the header code of the page.
  • download the Javascript jQuery libraries on the server and include the Javascript files in your project or page.
Method 1: To include the load code in the page:
  1. Display the description window of the page ("Description" in the context menu).
  2. Select the "Advanced" tab.
  3. Select the "HTML" tab.
  4. Copy the following code lines into the "HTML code added to the page header" area:
<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>
Caution: When this help page was written, the libraries were available in version 1.9.1 and 1.10.3. We advise you to check whether these versions are still the current ones.
Method 2: To include the Javascript files in your page (after download):
  1. Display the description window of the page ("Description" in the context menu).
  2. Select the "Advanced" tab.
  3. Select the "HTML" tab.
  4. Click the "Add" button and select the necessary JavaScript files (.js). Caution: we advise you to check which versions are the current ones.
