[PrestaShop] Theme Provider + jQuery

Postby Akrolab » Mon Jul 03, 2017 6:42 am

Hello,

I use your module with many websites, I have only one issue :
As soon as I activate the option to put the javascript in the footer in Prestashop every jQuery widget or plugin used in the wordpress site stop working.

Do you have a solution to this ?

This is a jquery issue - the jQuery that comes with PS needs to be loaded before the WP. Unless you are developer we recommend to leave the "Move to footer" option in PS disabled.

I am a Developper, this is not really a jQuery issue.
As you know loading the javascript at the end of a page increase the performance of a website and can be very useful if the pages you load are “big”.

That being said I would like a solution so that I can load my JS at the bottom at least for the Prestashop part of my website.

This can make me gain a few seconds of loading time which are very important for an e-shop.

In fact unless referenced JS files are referenced with "async" or "defer" attribute, moving these files to the footer do not make any difference - they pause/stop the parser regardless on position until they are loaded. If you are a developer then I wold suggest to take a look at the Dev console of the browser to see the error message.
