Hi,

could you please link to the accordion plugin page instea of the demo? Or provide both links? The demo page doesn’t offer any download options…

The same applies for the tooltip plugin.

You may also want to remove links to any thing Interface related. The project is, well, stone-dead, and almost superseded by jQuery UI.

Fantastica la lista de plugins, muchos de ellos ya los conocía y algunos que no, Gracias. También comentaros que tengo un par de plugins creados. Uno para hacer una galería que no está en los ejemplos. Es compatible con Thickbox, respeta standares y funciona en todos los navegadores http://www.noth.es/2007/11/25/actualizacion-del-jquery-gallery-v-0-2/ Y el otro es jquery-links, que sirve para añadir los iconos según su extensión, y añade un target=”blank” en caso de ser externo y si la página de destino tiene un favicon se lo pone, por lo que mejora la usabilidad y la accesibilidad. http://www.noth.es/2007/11/24/actualizacion-del-jquery-link-version-03/ Os animo a que los probeís… Read more »

Hi,

Thanx for adding my plugin to your list.

For a better demo, it best to use this link:
http://jquery.sanchezsalvador.com/samples/example.htm

There’s a bug sometimes with this demo (hope to fix soon) so that the person has to select a style, select another, and then reselect the first they choosen.
it’s a browser cache issue.

thanx again.

jquery is the sexiest thing since firefox. It has helped bridge the gap between browsers and help people write readable and reusable javascript.

I can’t believe this listing didn’t have the jquery UI set of thing. The tabs from from the ui toolkit and it looks like a couple others.

jquery Forever!!!!

http://www.racy.com uses jquery all over. It is lightweight and intelligent.

Hi ,
basically i didn’t try jquery , and i can’t imagine why people keep using it .
both JAVASCRIPT and AJAX are easy and you don’t have to use jquery or other codes to implement your site.

this script is so heavy on page and make it too heavy .

good luck every body ;)

Although there are some superb plugins, and the jquery platform IS amazing, a fair few ‘break’ in various versions of IE so they should be tested thoroughly before deciding to use any particular one.

I personally make use of #19 the jquery thickbox as it performs well in every major browser I have tested it in.

Another jquery based ‘effect’ for presenting DIV content is ND’s version of the ‘coda-slider’, well worth a look.

There are one or two plugins I hadn’t considered so this list is really useful.
