    SimpleTinyMCE field not working--javascript problem Link to this post

    My SimpleTinyMCEField has no buttons. I'm getting a JS error in firebug that points to '$(function(){' in this script:

    <script type="text/javascript">//<![CDATA[

    $(function() {
    plugins : 'safari,paste',
    theme : 'advanced',
    theme_advanced_buttons1 : 'bold,italic,underline,|,justifyleft,justifycenter,justifyright,|,styleselect,formatselect',theme_advanced_buttons2 : 'cut,copy,paste,pastetext,pasteword,|,bullist,numlist,|,link,unlink,anchor,image,|,code',theme_advanced_buttons3 : '',theme_advanced_buttons4 : '',
    theme_advanced_toolbar_location : 'top',
    theme_advanced_toolbar_align : 'left',
    theme_advanced_statusbar_location : 'bottom',
    theme_advanced_resizing : false,
    paste_auto_cleanup_on_paste : true,
    paste_remove_spans: true,
    paste_remove_styles: true,
    content_css : ''



    I'm not sure how to fix this--I have no custom JS in the CMS here, it's all SS (2.4.5) and DOM (using r540)
    Nothing jumps out at me immediately here except that it mentions 'safari' and I'm using firefox. It is on a mac though.
    Any ideas? Thanks!

    Hi theoldlr,

    I've come across the same problem this morning, so I decided to share my simple solution:

    The problem is, that sometimes not only jQuery but also prototype is included in the CMS, but both libraries are using the '$'-sign for different things, so the simple solution is to replace

    $(function() {


    jQuery(function($) {

    in line 186 in SimpleTinyMCEField.php
    and you should have your SimpleTinyMCEField working...

    @UncleCheese: I've attached a patch for this, maybe it would be useful to include this in dom's trunk...
