Foundation 5 and IMCE

Having trouble getting IMCE to play well with Foundation 5?

Why does IMCE not work with Foundation 5?

  • Foundation needs jQuery 1.10 or higher
  • IMCE uses $.browser which is not in 1.10
  • IMCE needs to use another jQuery version or use the jQuery migrate js file which is outlined below. 

Work around:

  1. Download jquery-migrate-1.2.1.js from and put it in the js folder of your theme. jQuery migrate adds back the $.browser in addition to many other functions removed from jQuery 1.9. 
  2. Create a file called imce-page.tpl.php and copy/paste the HTML code below. Change the bolded text with the path to the query migrate file. This allows IMCE to use $.browser.
  3. Clear theme registry or clear cache.
