jQuery Updater – WordPress plugin Free download

jQuery Updater


This plugin updates jQuery to the latest official stable version, which is most likely not available within the latest stable release of WordPress.
Since jQuery 2+ was used in this plugin, making jQuery 1.x obsolete, jQuery Migrate is also included.

No files are replaced, therefore deactivation of this plugin returns your site to it`s original state.


If you are not familiar with beta testing, bugfixing, javascript or running bleeding edge software it`s not recommended.
I will not provide help on JavaScript and jQuery!

Reporting problems

Please post bug reports and request for help on WordPress.org Support Forums. I will only provide help on issues caused by the plugin, not on JavaScript and jQuery related matters!
Please report feature requests and code changes on GitHub Issues page

If you run into any bugs, turning this plugin off will fully deactivate everything.

jQuery 2.0 has the same API as jQuery 1.9, but does not support Internet Explorer 6, 7, or 8. All the notes in the jQuery 1.9 Upgrade Guide apply here as well. Since IE 6/7/8 are still relatively common, we recommend using the 1.x version unless you are certain no IE 6/7/8 users are visiting the site.
