gantry and gravity forms: Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: .ginput_

  1. HI,

    I am getting the following error with my ajax enabled form:
    Error: Syntax error, unrecognized expression: .ginput_total_$family

    The form works but it seems that chosen.js is not loading on a next step.

    Any clues?

    Thanx!

    A plugin or theme conflict is causing that javascript error which in turn is preventing the enhanced ui being applied to your page two dropdowns, you are going to have to work through the plugin/theme conflict troubleshooting steps to narrow down the cause.

  5. Hello again,

    Is there any way to prevent gravity form to load jquery (thus preventing WP to load jquery at the head of the HTML doc.), since I am getting numerous js errors cause jquery is not loaded before other js scripts that are jquery dependent?

    Thanks!

    Gravity Forms loads jQuery using the recommended WordPress method of enqueueing the script to the head from the WordPress includes directory, when themes and plugins use this method it ensures that files are only included once on the page and in the correct order preventing the chance of javascript errors due to a file being included multiple times or because a script that depends on jQuery was included earlier, unfortunately not all plugins and themes use the recommended method and instead opt to hard code the links to scripts so WordPress doesn't know about them which means conflicts can occur.

    You should work through the plugin/theme conflict testing steps to figure out which theme or plugin is not inlcuding scripts in the correct way and causing your javascript errors.

    Regards,
    Richard
