Codex Slider getting a jquery error
On the Codex, the first slide displays fine, but it just refuses to advance, and throws the following error.
Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: [object Object][rel='2'].
I know I did a lot of changes to the actual slides last week (and other stuff in the Codex) - but the sliders were working fine.

Ray is correct, the theme is loading jQuery v1.8.1 from jQuery's CDN.
I can't access an admin section for the codex in my local dev env. But looking through the theme's header there are references to Woo specific actions in the head.
Is there a specific admin section options page where you can tell the theme to load an older version of jQuery?

Hi Dom - There is an admin section in the Woo framework, but it doesn't have such an option. I looked through all the Canvas settings but didn't see any reference to jquery versions. It's strange that one site (QCGSLIS) is working (loading the older jquery version) and the Codex is not.

Hi Dom - I finally figured it out. It looks like the plugin "TheThe Tabs and Accordions" was causing the issue. I activated it on QCGSLIS and the slider stopped working there too. So now I deactivated it on both sites and everything is back to normal. I wonder why it all of a sudden caused an issue - since it was activated awhile back. Maybe an update to a newer version? Anyway - Dom, Ray - that's for helping!

Yup, their changelog indicates that the update to v1.0.6 changed to loading latest jQuery file (1.8.1) from the jQuery CDN.
If anyone cares, it's being enqueued in plugins/thethe-tabs-and-accordians/lib/lib.php on line 20.
Can we close this issue, or do you need me to figure out a way to override it?

Hi Dom -
For me, it is resolved. I just deactivated the plugin on the Codex. I think WP UI plugin that was recently added to the Commons does everything that TheThe Tabs and Accordions does, only better. Maybe we should think about not having two plugins that do the same things, especially if one causes problems? But I don't know if anyone is using The The Tabs and Accordions. Is there any way to tell?
But bottom line, my issue is resolved.

- Status changed from Assigned to Resolved
OK, I'm going to mark this as resolved then.
There are plugins that will analyze the plugin/theme usage on a site, but our site is so large that those plugins fail pretty quickly. :-)
Boone and I are working on a new solution that will work on the Commons. So we will revisit removing this plugin once we analyze all the plugins across our entire install.
Thanks for your help with this Scott.
