How I fixed the Javascript error with wp-codebox

I’ve been using the wp-codebox plugin for a while… and an upgrade came today!

Well, I applied the upgrade - and now every page that has a code box on it was causing my JS to crash. The first thing I did was disable the inclusion of the jquery.js file in the plugin by editing the main.php file’s codebox_header() function. Then, I deleted the jquery.js file from the /js folder in the plugin. Finally, I edited js/codebox.js to remove the reference to the old jquery’s noConflict() method. I removed the $jcodebox variable and replaced it with the $ only. Now, all is well.
