    jQuery bxslider and Mootols banner conflict

    Hello,

    I am a student and am currently developing my first wordpress based website.

    I currently have two conflicting javascripts on my home page (splash.php).

    The first is a banner that uses mootools and the other is the bxslider jQuery script.

    Banner:
    Code:
    <head>
    
    <script src="http://www.berryconcept.co.uk/sandbox/wp-content/themes/ForetrackWP/js/mootools.js" language="javascript"></script>
    
    <script>
    
    window.addEvent('domready', function()
    {	
    	//set the default image
    	activeImage = 'img1';
    	activeLink = '1';
    	
    	//initialise the default image
    	var initialise = $(activeImage).setStyles({display:'block',opacity: 0});	
    	new Fx.Style(initialise, 'opacity', {duration: 1} ).set(1);
    	$(activeLink).className = "active";
    	
    	//event listener
    	$('banner-nav').getElements('a').addEvent('mouseenter', function(e) 
    	{	
    		new Event(e).stop();
    		
    		$(activeLink).className = "";
    		this.className = "active";
    		activeLink = this.id;
    		
    		var newImage = 'img'+this.id;
    		
    		transitionImage(activeImage,newImage);
    	});
    });
    
    function transitionImage(oldImage,newImage)
    {
    	var fadeOut = function()
    	{
    		var div = $(oldImage).setStyles({
    			opacity: 1
    		});
    		
    		new Fx.Style(div, 'opacity', {duration: 700}).start(0);
    		
    		fadeIn();
    		
    	};
    	
    	var fadeIn = function()
    	{
    		
    		var div2 = $(newImage).setStyles({
    			display:'block',
    			opacity: 0
    		});
    			
    		new Fx.Style(div2, 'opacity', {duration: 700}).start(1);
    		
    	};
    	
    	if(newImage != activeImage)
    	{
    		fadeOut();
    		activeImage = newImage;		
    	}
    }
    	
    </script>
    </head>
    bxslider:

    Code:
    <head>
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-latest.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script src="http://www.berryconcept.co.uk/sandbox/wp-content/themes/ForetrackWP/js/jquery.bxSlider.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    	$(function(){
      $('#slider1').bxSlider({
        auto: true,
        pager: true,
    	autoHover: true
      });
    });
    </script>
    </head>

    I have been trying for days to find the problem, but I'm not very knowledgeable of javascript. Any help would really be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    I don't have much experience with mootools, but it looks like the problem is that both jQuery and mootools are using the $ sign. In jQuery you the $ sign is just a shortcut to the word jQuery, so you should be able to just replace each $ with jQuery like so:

    Code:
    jQuery(function(){
        jQuery('#slider1').bxSlider({
            auto: true,
            pager: true,
    	autoHover: true
        });
    });
    You can also look at the noConflict() function in jQuery.

    Thanks

    Perfect. Using the no conflict function and then replacing $ with jQuery works a treat.

    Thanks very much.
