    If I'm using jQuery as my front end JavaScript library, not Microsoft's toolkit, do I still need to include the Script Manager in my custom template?

    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>
        

    I suspect that some of the Sitefinity widgets use the Microsoft JavaScript libraries. (unsure though as they seem to use a lot of custom Telerik JS. But none of my own JavaScript references anything other than the jQuery library.

    Thoughts? Comments? Answers? Am I still misunderstanding the role of JavaScript in Sitefinity?
    Thanks

    Sitefinity uses the RadControls which is MSAjax based and requires a script manager, but I believe Sitefinity will put it there for you if it doesn't exist...

    Try removing it, if you don't get errors...MAZEL TOV! :)
