I'm trying to use CKEditor without success. I'm getting the following error in the js console: Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token :

I believe the cause is the ID of the textarea/input generated by the platform. 

I have pages using CKEditor without problems that were created with StyleGuide (some years ago) and where the html ids look like this: <textarea id="wtTextArea"...

And then I'm trying to use CKEditor in a page using the new LondonTheme where the html ids look like this: <textarea id="RichWidgets_wt10:wtMainContent:wtTextArea"

Those colon's are breaking the editor code! 

Any suggestions on how to override this situation?

I came across this issue when I deployed the java version.

I too had issues with the ":" colon, it seems that the EVAL does not like the colon and the version of JSF uses colons to identify field id's instead of underscores "_"  

I fix it by replacing a few lines in the javasource of the CKEdit WebBlock  the code goes from:



I've attached source with the fix.
