I'm wanting to add some additional javascript to the bottom of the body tag instead of the head.

Is there a standard way to do this from the config.xml with <add> tags .. ?

Maybe a "best" way to do this?

Thanks in advanced!

At the end of the "layout_global.twig" before </body>?

correct .. I know I could hardcode something, just wondering if there's a way to specify from config.xml of theme or if there are existing best practices.

What is the difference between writing it into the twig file or into the config file of a theme? Both is "hard coded" in a way, isn't it.

As far as I know, it cannot be done via config.xml.

IDK what all differences may be, that's why I ask. When I develop something, I aim for "best practices", and understanding the infrastructure best I can.

I know in 3.x we can add js via config.xml and not having to put in head manually .. Another difference maybe inheritance with the <replace> tag.
It is becoming more standard to load JS in bottom of body tag for quicker first paint times.

No big deal I'll pop it in there manually.

Thanks everybody!

js file, not javascript, no ?

Else : can be a great feature to allow $position in XML attaribute, default to POS_HEAD
Need a feature request

Definitely a good idea to load JS in bottom of the page, if possible (especially when from an external source).

Many years ago we "stopped" the website of a maior car brand once because our server where the javascript was hosted went down. Unfortunately they had implemented our script in the header and not like we recommended at the end of the html code.

@DenisChenu

Right, I'm talking about a javascript file.

What is your preferred way to receive feature requests? Github repo issue?

Remind : i'm not from LimeSurvey GMBH team … only an external dev like you :)

But:
  1. read github.com/LimeSurvey/LimeSurvey/blob/ma...G.md#getting-started
  2. read community.limesurvey.org/feature-request/
  3. read manual.limesurvey.org/Standard_for_Git_commit_messages

Start by a mantis issue :)
