I want to add some global JavaScript to Sharepoint 2010. So I put JQuery to C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS and my script to C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\14\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\Scripts\ and now I have no clue where to put <script src="/_layouts/jquery-min.js"> Can anyone help with this?

Thank you

You can put <script type="text/javascript" src="/_layouts/Scripts/jquery-min.js"></script> in master page to access this javascript globally in all pages.

Or you can put that script tag in your custom webpart / content editor webpart / script editor webpart to access that script only for that webpart only.

  • I have three of master pages: default.master, minimal.master and v4.master. Changing any of them doesn't affect anything, i.e. I don't see my changes in default page source

  • Add this script tag in your current master page. By putting this script, Which functionality you want to achieve? May 16, 2016 at 12:12
  • so putting this globally doesn't change anything. you should change master pages for each subsite

I discuss how to get started with jQuery (including how to deploy and reference the library) in this conference session: JavaScript and jQuery for SharePoint Developers
