Ticket #1391 (closed bug: fixed)
$ in openlayers lib conflicts with jquery
|Reported by:||jpulles||Owned by:||tschaub|
The $ function defined in Util.js of the OpenLayers library conflicts with the $ function in the jQuery library. This happens when OpenLayers is integrated with the Drupal CMS and is noticeable in IE (see eg http://aardbodem.nl/node/3 which uses the svn version of OpenLayers).
I have a simple patch attached that removes the $ function from Util.js. The $ function is not used in the library itself, but only in tests and examples. Thus, it would be preferred if it is only defined in the tests and examples.
