If I set include_jquery="no" parameter I still appear to be getting JS code injected into my page as one of my fields is a date field.

Not including it is throwing two JS errors:

jQuery not defined and $ not defined.

If I include jQuery the errors go away but then the date field throws a weird value:



  1. If I have a field that EE recognizes as requiring a jQuery UI element will it always throw in the JS? Is there a way to override this?

  2. If I do include jQuery how do I fix the weird date value?


Have you tried adding include_assets="no" and datepicker="no"? These should stop Expression Engine including it's own JS.

  • Awesome, exactly what I was looking for. Thank you.
