This website contains links to software which is either no longer maintained or will be supported only until the end of 2019 (CKFinder 2).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.

The CKEditor for Drupal module can be unistalled at any time by using the Drupal Administration panel. Follow the steps described below to remove CKEditor from your Drupal website.

Firstly, go to the Administration panel > Modules > User interface.

Now deselect the Enabled checkbox next to CKEditor module name. Click the Save Configuration button to disable the editor.

Disabling the CKEditor for Drupal module

When the configuration is saved, go to the Uninstall tab of the Modules page. The CKEditor module should now be available to uninstall.

Uninstalling CKEditor for Drupal

Select the Uninstall checkbox next to the module name and click the Uninstall button. CKEditor for Drupal will now be removed from your Drupal site.

important note

Please note that the uninstallation process removes the CKEditor for Drupal module along with all its database tables and settings. It does not, however, remove the module files. If you want to completely remove the files from your server, you will need to delete them manually from the drupal/sites/all/modules/ckeditor directory.

If you do not want to delete the module files and its configuration, you can simply disable the module. In this way you will turn CKEditor off for your Drupal website, but will preserve the editor settings, making it easier to turn it on again if you wish to do so in the future.
