    We're already including jQuery in all of our pages and there is no need to include it twice.

    I don't see anything in that post that explains how to disable or prevent the embedded jquery reference. I too am using my own jquery reference and want to disable the embedded one, how is this done?

    Hello SelArom,

    You can override our jQuery reference to point to your version of the jQuery.js if you add the following ScriptReference to the Scripts section of your ScriptManager:
    <asp:ScriptReference Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" Name="Telerik.Web.UI.Common.jQuery.js" Path="[path_to_jQuery.js]" />

    The problem with this is that jQuery plugins are also being nuked by the re-inclusion. So I have to hack around that too. Obviously the person who implemented this as a concept didn't understand the dynamic nature of Javascript objects or perhaps just didn't care about the possibility of other jQuery plugins.
