Remove Mootools in Joomla

Mootools.js and caption.js are two javascript libraries that are mainly used in the administrator control panel. Most of the Joomla templates don’t use it. The size of the two library files are about 75k and those decrease the speed of the website. Sometimes it conflicts with few modules that are installed and the modules don’t work properly.

These are the two lines which load in the joomla website.

 

So to disable the two lines of code we need to write the following code on the top of the index.php file of our template.

getHeadData();
reset($headerstuff['scripts']);
foreach($headerstuff['scripts'] as $key=>$value){
unset($headerstuff['scripts'][$key]);
}
$this->setHeadData($headerstuff);
?>

After inserting the lines of codes, refresh the frontend and clear the joomla cache.If you have problems with mootools on your Joomla website, ask us for assistance.

Joomla Website Optimization Services

Joomla Website gets slow after installing many modules,components and plugins. The number of CSS and Javascript files increases on installation of extensions. This increase in number decreases the page speed which slows down the page load speed.Decrease in speed of the page may lead to falling of page rank on search engines and even decrease in number of visitors of the website.

You can check your page speed at Google Online Page Speed/ or you can install YSlow Addon to your browser and Run the Test to check it. The page speed is rated out of 100.

The page speed can be increased by:
