I checked the EE 2.x Changelog (http://ellislab.com/expressionengine/user-guide/about/changelog.html) and system reqs (http://ellislab.com/expressionengine/user-guide/installation/requirements.html), and couldn't find anything. Then I added the include_jquery="yes" parameter to a {exp:channel:form} tag, checked browser source and found:

jQuery JavaScript Library v1.7.2

However, when I look at JQuery UI, I get:

* jQuery UI @VERSION

What does @VERSION refer to? How can I find the version of JQuery?

That should be right - but you can check the source within the themes folder:


  • Thanks Jessica. I don't see anything in the .js files themselves except for @VERSION. However there is a file called version.txt in /themes/javascript/compressed/jquery which has 1.7.1 in it, so I'm assuming that's the answer. May 22, 2014 at 16:10
  • actually not - based on plugin code, jquery UI is in range of 1.8.18-1.8.24
