<script type="text/javascript" src="//"></script>

<script src="//"></script>



<div class="container text-center">


<textarea name="editor"></textarea>




CKEDITOR.replace( 'editor' );

$("form").submit( function(e) {

var messageLength = CKEDITOR.instances['editor'].getData().replace(/<[^>]*>/gi, '').length;

if( !messageLength ) {

alert( 'Please enter a message' );
