How many jQuery scripts do I need?

Discussion in 'jQuery' started by GjB, Dec 22, 2016.

    Sorry if this seems easy:
    I'm trying to minimize my site and I realize I have these 2 scripts in the head of my html:
    <script src="jquery.js"></script>
    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.1.0.min.js"></script>

    Do I need them both? If yes, or no, could you please explain why?

    Thanks

    Check what does jquery.js contain, if it's just vanilla jquery without any customizations you won't need it. Probably some script required it and you just forgot about it.

    Thanks. I was advised to keep the top script (and continue to host the jquery (minifed) on my site) and do away with the second script. (The jquery is the previous version 3.1.0, so I changed it to 3.1.1.)
    You're right, I had forgotten about it, or in fact pasted them both in error ages ago. I had just copied and pasted the HTML from a previous site when I set up the pages.
    I appreciate your time. Have a good Christmas or holiday.

    NEED? zero. At least if you have anything resembling common sense.
