Scripts Compression

This website contains links to software which is either no longer maintained or will be supported only until the end of 2019 (CKFinder 2).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

Scripts Compression

The editor scripts source code can be found in the package at the "editor/_source/" directory. It is "human readable" as well as commented. There are a lot of files there, organized by groups.

To maximize loading and execution performance, the production distribution code in compressed to fewer and smaller files, as described in "Performance". These files are found at the "editor/js/" directory.

Using the "_source" files

It is possible to run the editor using the original scripts in the "_source" directory. It is useful when developing or debugging the editor. It is quite easy to do that.

Using a special URL parameter

The first way is the easiest on, but it depends on the integration files you are using. For now, only the JavaScript integration can do this.

Just add the "fcksource=true" parameter (QueryString) to the URL of the page where the editor is loaded.

Using the "original" file

There is also a definitive way to tell the editor to use the "_source" files.

Just go the "editor" directory and overwrite fckeditor.html with fckeditor.original.html (remember to backup the first one).

To restart using the "compressed" files again, just recover the backed-up "fckeditor.html" file.
