[PATCH] AutocompleteUsers plugin conflicts with KeywordSuggest plugin
|Reported by:||Ben Allen||Owned by:|
The KeywordSuggestPlugin uses the autocomplete API from jQuery, and it uses the jQuery version that is bundled with Trac (for Trac release 1.0 and later). The AutocompleteUsersPlugin includes its own jQuery autocomplete library. When both of these plugins are loaded, the AutocompleteUsersPlugin works but the KeywordSuggestPlugin does not. Presumably, this is because the plugin load order is causing the autocomplete library from the AutocompleteUsersPlugin to override functionality from Trac's jQuery library.
The true solution to this problem is for this plugin to use Trac's jQuery library as well. This is most likely not a trivial task. In the meantime, I have developed a workaround that allows both plugins to coexist peacefully.
