Lesson to learn. Never use any built-in UI related tags from ColdFusion such as cflayout, cfdiv, cftooltip, etc. For CF newcomers, those tags are great features. Easy to use and quick to implement. However, those tags will introduce problems later on.
Just build your page with standard HTML. It will last longer and less maintenance.
Then why buy and use ColdFusion at all. I thought the whole idea was that ColdFusion was a language that was built to shorten development time and make it easier. If I purchase a product, I expect all features, tags, and every other functions to work. Otherwise, I am being basically scammed and sold a bill of goods. Does anyone know if CKEditor will work with cflayout in CF10. I am currently on CF9 and considering upgrading if this will work. I need it to work for me CMS system.
Calm down... Frustration doesn't solve the problem.
CF9 uses extJS 3.x. You might want to google "ckeditor extjs 3".
Not sure about CF10.
To test your app on a different version of CF, install the CF on a virtual machine. That's how I would do it.
