I am working with SharePoint server 2013, and inside my Style Library folder I have added the Jquery file. then under the custmJSUrl section inside my seatle.master page, I added a reference to the jQuery file as follows:

<SharePoint:CustomJSUrl runat="server" />
<SharePoint:ScriptLink language="javascript" name="/sites/Intranet/Style Library/JS/jquery-1.10.2.min.js" runat="server"/>

but unfortunately doing so , will stop my page from being displayed and instead of that a blank white page will be displayed ? so is my approach of referencing jQuery the right way to follow?

  • Try having only the /Style Library/JS/jquery-1.10.2.min.js in the Name property.

Scriptlink is typically reserved for JS files deployed to the file system.

The ScriptLink will always look in /_LAYOUTS/1033 for the scripts.


Just change it to the typical script src="/sites/Intranet/Style Library/JS/jquery-1.10.2.min.js" syntax or copy the JS files to the /_LAYOUTS/1033 folder on all of your servers.
