Version 7.x-2.3-alpha1 of this module does not currently check to see whether it is being called from Drupal's administration section. This can cause issues with other modules such as media, where the media browser does not appear correctly with later versions of jQuery.

This is fixed in later versions of the module, which take a different approach to this patch.

Proposed resolution

Include the following code within jquery_update_library_alter()

// Don't update jQuery on admin pages
if (path_is_admin(current_path())) {
  return FALSE;

Remaining tasks

Create patch for this version of the module.

Updating this issue as it appears that the test for administration pages was actually not included with this version of the module at all - it was added by a contractor working on our Drupal installation. Will update the issue accordingly

You should add a configuration option. A textarea of paths that are configurable and that allow everyone to extend the list. You can steal the code in Google Analytics module.

Version: 7.x-2.x-dev » 7.x-3.x-dev

This will likely still be wanted/needed in 7.x-3.x.
