I am having trouble getting my bootstrap 3 carousel to work. On the site it will automatically advance if you first click to advance a slide. I have disabled the pause on hover. I tested it on Code Pen and it works like a charm. I think it might be a conflict with the JS but I dont know where to start.


        // Script to Activate the Carousel 
            interval: 3000,
            pause: 'none'

  • not really, just jQuery is undefined, but its coming from Joomla's no conflict script. May 13, 2016 at 19:46
  • Try removing (function($){ and })(jQuery); then replacing $(document).ready(function(){ with jQuery(document).ready(function($){

  • Still no luck, here is what I have: //jQuery noConflict from Joomla Script jQuery.noConflict(); // (function($){ jQuery(document).ready(function($){ // $(document).ready(function(){ $('.dropdown-toggle').dropdown(); // Script to Activate the Carousel $('.carousel').carousel({ interval: 3000, pause: 'none' }); }); // })(jQuery); May 13, 2016 at 20:04
  • How are you importing the script? And do you have multiple jQuery instances?

Will post the answer as a reference.

In the end this was due to multiple instances of jQuery being loaded. 1 via a CDN and the other from Joomla's core.

Once fixed, we also ensured jQuery.noConflict(); was used directly after jQuery being loaded.
