I suspect the issue is a conflict between jQuery plugins...many of which are poorly-written and can easily cause conflicts. Kinda like MODs.
In my defense, I can not possibly be expected to write every single mod that would never possibly interfere with another mod.
There is no reason you must defend yourself. The conflict issues with MODs (and jQuery plugins) is endemic to any platform which allows additions/modifications to its functionality.

but what about the advantage of using the most recent library of jQuery, a highly rated js library? PS one man's "bloat" is another man's utopia
As a developer, I try to listen to my potential customers in an attempt to develop what THEY want, and I try to keep my own likes and dislikes out of the development process when they conflict with what the customers want.
My customers have told me, loud and clear, that they want software which works as advertised with as little effort on their part as possible, and co-exists with everything else on their system.
That means doing development using a "least-common-denominator" approach with platforms such as jQuery. No software I write will require a version of jQuery later than 1.5.1 (the last version which didn't cause slowdowns in real-world code), and I do not use plugins unless it is absolutely required (has only happened once).
Now, back to the topic.

slideToggle()? How do I add that to the code?
function will do what you want. It would be added to an element that, when clicked, would toggle the display of another element. If you have some specific code to which you want to add this feature, please post it in a reply, and I can show you how to add the clickable element.
