All javascript and jquery elements stopped working

I was just wondering, is there a way to disable javascript and jquery elements from working??…Because i think i just might have accidentally done that. my java script and jquery elements stopped working a day ago and i have been battling to get them to work.

for exmple, some items i hid with jquery still show and “like” button do not respond. everything was all good just 3days ago. I dont know what went wrong.

I have an ubuntu 16.04 server instance with django 1.8.

Please get back to me if you have an idea of where the root of my problems could stem from.

Not as far as I know. Did you changed something in web app?
Open Web Console from your Web browser and then try opening/reloading your site. You can open it by pressing F12 or right clicking somewhere and selecting Inspect element (or anything similar). Then find Console.

Observe for errors. It could be that you changed some script which causes browser to stop parsing JS further or you moved/deleted some script. Anyways, Console will help you debug it.
