[InterMine Dev] Why does adding a bag displayer blow away the list table?

Hi Sam,

Yup, reloading the autoResize plugin should do the trick.

If you find yourself needing jQuery 3 often, jQuery has a noConflict 
function that can be (ab)used to load multiple versions of jQuery at 
once. What could go wrong, right? ;)


It looks like Intermine is loading 1.11.0 which is pretty old in 
JavaScript years. We've probably managed to avoid problems because most 
of our widgets are self contained with their own, newer versions of 
jQuery bundled inside. The trade off, of course, is reliability at the 
expense of file size.

I've opened a ticket for us to investigate an upgrade to jQuery 3:

Thanks for letting us know your solution!
