System plugin to enable/disable mootools by menu item.

When Bootstrap comes to Joomla! users need a tool to avoid Mootools loading by default in Joomla 2.5.x


  • Mootools can be enabled or disabled by default.
  • You can enable/disable Mootools when editing menu items.
  • Nulls any window.addEvent calls.
  • Removes JCaption calls.
  • You can enable Mootools for specific components.
  • By default the plugin enables Mootools for frontend conten edition and com_users (login, profile edition, etc.).


Plugin version: 1.5.0


Clone this repository or just download from:
[Download Zip]
[Download tar.gz]
Then install normally throught Joomla! Extension Manager as package (if you downloaded the compressed version) or from folder (if you cloned the repository).

In plugin management search "System - Mootools Enabler/Disabler", enable the plugin and set in its preferences the default Mootools mode.

When editing a menu you will see a new pane called "Mootools enable/disable". Adjust there if you want to load or not Mootools for this menu item.
