Load jQuery on the front end for logged-in users
|Reported by:||azaozz||Owned by:|
This will let us simplify the toolbar JS and improve user experience: hoverIntent, additions by plugins that require jQuery, etc.
jQuery can be loaded in two different ways:
- Directly, by enqueueing it with script_loader and then adding wpjq = jQuery.noConflict(true); where true means other version of jQuery will be left with the globals.
- By outputting some JS at the very end of 'wp_footer'. This JS would be able to check whether jQuery is already loaded and if not, load it by appending a <script src="..."> tag to the head (note that this method would load jQuery asynchronously).
