Hi everyone, 

Im planing to start using Backdrop because is really fast and so Drupal 7, that I like it, and now that in less that 12 months Drupal 7 is going to finish, I think is the best option, the only thing is that I dont really understand why is using Jquery 1.x instead of Jquery 3.x

is there anyway to use Jquery 3? at least in some pages (I presume is using Jquery 1 because Views has been written in that version and to change that would be a lot of work)

Thanks in advance! 

This is the website design based in Mallorca I willing to port from D7 to Backdrop!!

Hola, Diseño web Mallorca. Welcome to the Backdrop community and forum!

I don't know a lot about jQuery versions and whether something like this may break your site, but technically you could create a simple custom module that implements hook_library_info_alter() and modify the version of jQuery that's defined in system_library_info()

You may also want to post your questions on the Backdrop Zulip channel. You may get quicker help sometimes there.

Good luck!

It's just that there are security vulnerabilities in Jquery 1.x  That's a really really old version of the script. But I will try to add it the way you say to see of theres not any incomatibility between both versions.

Thanks Alejandro!
