It is very easy to use FCKeditor in your ColdFusion web pages. Just follow these steps.

Integration step by step

Step 1

Create a cfm page which will include the following <cfmodule> code:

<cfmodule
template="/fckeditor/fckeditor.cfm"
basePath="/fckeditor/"
instanceName="myEditor"
value='<p>This is some <strong>sample text</strong>. You are using <a href="http://www.fckeditor.net/">FCKeditor</a>.</p>'
width="100%"
height="200"
>

In the above example, BasePath is set to the URL path to the FCKeditor installation folder.

Step 2

The editor is now ready to be used. Just open the page in your browser to see it at work.

Sample Code

<cfsetting enablecfoutputonly="true">
<cfoutput>
<html>
<head>
<title>FCKeditor - Sample</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow">
</head>
<body>
<h1>FCKeditor in Coldfusion</h1>
</cfoutput>

<cfmodule
template="/fckeditor/fckeditor.cfm"
basePath="/fckeditor/"
instanceName="myEditor"
value='<p>This is some <strong>sample text</strong>. You are using <a href="http://www.fckeditor.net/">FCKeditor</a>.</p>'
width="100%"
height="200"
>
</body>
</html>
<cfsetting enablecfoutputonly="false">
