I am not sure if you were able to get your plugin working but I have been working on getting Jquery to function in BlogEngine and have finally worked out the best way to get it to work with pretty much any theme.
Just add this into your masterpage .cs file and make sure you know where your files are at to update the src path.
HtmlGenericControl js = new HtmlGenericControl("script");
js.Attributes["src"] = Request.ApplicationPath + "/scripts/jquery.js";
HtmlGenericControl js2 = new HtmlGenericControl("script");
js2.InnerText = "$j = jQuery.noConflict();";
The other thing that I have noticed is when you download the jquery plugin you want to use (not the default jquery file you always need) you will have to customize it and change all of the $ to $J since you will be running in noConflict mode.
Here is a live demo of a jquery slider I have working in BlogEngine.NET
It is the MoviesForMyBlog Plugin on the side
The plugin is downloadable from
