Jquery on the server

In an attempt to cut down on redundancy on our servers, I’ve installed jquery on the main server in the umkc-standards folder, the same folder where the standard CSS and header/footer files are located. I’ve posted an example page in the folder so that you can see the tool in action.

If you want to use jquery on your site, you can pull the javascript from this location.

http://www.umkc.edu/umkc-standards/jquery/js/jquery-ui-1.7.2.custom.min.js

Feel free to create your own CSS with the Jquery themeroller, but if you are wanting to use standard colors, I have created a umkc theme as well.
