$ is not a function jQuery error after upgrade from 7 to 8.0

Jaroslav Šebok asked on August 23, 2016 15:09

So I've upgraded from 7 to 8.0 and I got this error in a custom web part:

`Uncaught TypeError: $ is not a function`

on the line

`var $=jQuery.noConflict();$(function(){$(".footable").footable()})`

stacktrace looks like this:

(anonymous function)    @GetResource.ashx?scriptfile=%2fCMSScripts%2fCustom%2fCSOBL%2fstartFoo.js:1
v   @GetResource.ashx?scriptfile=~%2fCMSScripts%2fjquery%2fjquery-core.js:16
fireWith    @GetResource.ashx?scriptfile=~%2fCMSScripts%2fjquery%2fjquery-core.js:16
ready   @GetResource.ashx?scriptfile=~%2fCMSScripts%2fjquery%2fjquery-core.js:16
u   @GetResource.ashx?scriptfile=~%2fCMSScripts%2fjquery%2fjquery-core.js:16

Can you recommend any solution to this?

I already tried

ScriptHelper.RegisterJQuery(Page);
ScriptHelper.RegisterJQueryUI(Page);
ScriptHelper.RegisterJQueryDialog(Page);

or

`ScriptHelper.RegisterJQuery(Page);`

Upgrade to 8.2, 8.1 the option to use your own jQuery became available, 8.2 the option is forced, so if you go to 8.2 you'll be able to use your own jQuery without conflict and needing to do the no conflict tricks. anything before 8.1 the CMS uses the $ so it may cause issues.

Agree with Trevor, if you're already on 8.0.x, then you might as well upgrade to 8.2.49.
