    Hi,


    joomla uses mootools as javascript frameworks. Mootools supports cross browser safe ajax.



    Whether or not mootools is a good choice by the joomla developers is a different discussion but I think it is a bad idea to have two different frameworks on the same site. ( they are quite big so speed is one thing). I try to avoid any jquery plugins and will use mootools for the component/module.

    so : wont' fix/rejected

    I have heard talk about joomla core moving over to jQuery so you should look into that first :)

    Secondly there is no problem with running mootools and jQuery side by side... If you take a look at the major theme creators (like yootheme, joomlart, rockettheme etc) they all tend to use jQuery.

    And there can always be optional to load or not.. I would quess that like 90% of your visitor has jQuery loaded from the google CDN so it wont be requested that often to begin with ;)

    Just think that there will be so much more possibilities with the component if you use jQuery :)

    edit: There are ways to disable mootools in frontend... only the backend is depended on this.

    i switched to jQuery. U can see it on damen.kolbas.de

    For AJAX i use SmartAjax PlugIn, it rocks.

    Btw.. how did you make it possible to have multiple selects?
    The "Filter" is really nice!
