Hi there,

I’m in the middle of work on html template, but I stuck in some point with mootools library. I’m using that for nice slide effect, however I can’t make it work to validate forms. Does it make any sense to use jquery within the same template ? It is probably not very “healthy” for template to download two libraries – each about 90kB. Or maybe I should go to PHP validation.

What would you suggest as more experienced “templater” ?

Cheers – Matt.

i would say use one or the other, no point really in having 2 different libraries just for 1 effect

Hi Slimmity,

I’m not trying to use two libraries for one effect. One (mootools) for some slide, second (jquery) for form validation.

Cheers.

Seems i expressed my self wrong. Lets say you used mootools on the entire page but you get jquery just for 1 effect/plugin, don’t really see the need there use one or the other.

Ok … it seems as I panicked to early. I forced that mootools to do what I want.

I’ll ask another question – is it no problem if html template uses free library ? Should I put some note somewhere in the code with links ? I never published template before, so I’m not sure.

Cheers.
