Fixing ItemID issues in Joomla! 1.0.3

Many of you have probably noticed that the latest Joomla! release breaks many scripts that rely on ItemIDs for processing. If you are using our code utilize an ItemID for a unique CSS on each page, you will want to implement this fix.

In order to fix the ItemID issue you have to add a line of code to your template. It needs to go under:

<?php mosShowHead(); ?>
<?php if ( $my->id ) { initEditor(); } ?>

Insert this line of code, and you will be able to use the ItemID again (which is crucial in many cases).

<?php global $Itemid; ?>

Please pass this along to anyone else who may be having issues with this.
