CKEditor for Drupal 6 Installation Troubleshooting (Open Source Version)

This website contains links to software which is either no longer maintained or will be supported only until the end of 2019 (CKFinder 2).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

If CKEditor does not appear on the page, check if all files were extracted correctly.

The sites/all/modules/ckeditor/ckeditor/ directory should contain at least the following files: ckeditor.js, config.js, contents.css and directories named images, lang, plugins, skins, and themes.

The correct directory structure is as follows:

modules               <dir>
   ckeditor           <dir>
      ckeditor        <dir>
         _source      <dir>
         images       <dir>
         lang         <dir>
         plugins      <dir>
         skins        <dir>
         themes       <dir>

As noted above, alternatively the sites/all/libraries/ckeditor directory can be used. The libraries directory is the default path when drush is used to download the editor JavaScript code.

If you are still experiencing problems with your CKEditor installation, see the Help & Contribution section.
