Users Guide

This website contains links to software which is either no longer maintained or will be supported only until the end of 2019 (CKFinder 2). For the latest documentation about current CKSource projects, including software like CKEditor 4/CKEditor 5, CKFinder 3, Cloud Services, Letters, Accessibility Checker, please visit the new documentation website.

If you look for an information about very old versions of CKEditor, FCKeditor and CKFinder check also the CKEditor forum, which was closed in 2015. If not, please head to StackOverflow for support.

File Manager

The filemanager is not documented (TODO)


I believe there should be a FAQ here too, with entries like :

  • Setting the page's background
    In your fckconfig.js set 'FCKConfig.FullPage' to 'true'; and make sure the buttons 'DocProps' is set in your toolbarset.
    (This button was greyed out when 'FCKConfig.FullPage' was 'false')
    Now reload the FCKeditor (ctrl + F5 and perhaps disable your cache to make sure). You will now be able to click the button 'DocProps' and set the background of the document in tab 'Background'.

You must remember that this part of the guide is aimed to the end users, so they won't be able to change the FullPage setting or the toolbar buttons. It must be strange enough for them when they see some references to a button that isn't present in their layout, let's avoid giving them a big headache talking about things that they can't control.

Also, a user that needs to read this guide in order to use the toolbar buttons won't know what's the "cache" or how to disable it.

Definitelly. The user's guide is the wrong place to developer related things (fredck)

Copy/Paste button failures

Documentation on the non-working copy + paste buttons.

This works on other ediors (TinyMCE, etc.) the error message 'browser security settings' is faulty/misleading.
