: Mootools?
: master360 November 24, 2013, 11:49:47 AM
I just bought and installed a module that will not work unless I enable Mootools plugin. Problem is that I cannot find the Mootools plugin.

Forgive me for my ignorance but isn't this something that normally is installed in Joomla? Is this plugin somehow removed from this template or deactivated? Perpaps I can activate it somehow?

Please advice.

The mootools plugin was only for joomla 1.5 and all it did was upgrade mootools to a more recent version. Anything 1.6 and higher it automatically called mootools-more.js and mootools-core.js directly from Joomla.

Mike, when searching for the plugin called "Systems - mootools upgrade" in order to enable it - it is not there!?

BTW, I can see that in the Template Manager there are something called "Enable tooltips". Has this one something to do with the missing plugin?

Looking forward to find a solution. Cheers.

Again this System Plugin was removed in future versions of Joomla. Tooltips is a completely different function that affects images and adds a text overlay to them. The Template itself has no interaction with system plugins. I would suggest contacting Joomla directly for issues with the Joomla core as they can guide you in the right direction.

In the current versions its is called from mootools-more.js and mootools-core.js directly from Joomla. Your extension would have to call these scripts to work properly.
