Enhancing CKEditor

CKEditor is a WYSIWYG editor that allows users a greater versatility, functionality and simple management in text editing. For that reason it has become the default text editor in Elgg 1.9. In this article I will show how to enhance CKEditor with more cool features
Getting started

1. Download the community plugin CKEditor Extended. This plugin allows to extend the functions of CKEditor, from uploading an image to embed videos.

2. Install the plugin. If you don’t know how to do that, read our guide on how to install plugins in elgg.

3. Sign into elgg as an Administrator. Open the Administration Dashboard, and go to menu “Configure -> Plugins“. Find “CKEditor Extended 1.0” in the plugin’s list and activate it:

activate plugin elgg arvixe

4. Go to menu “Configure -> Settings -> CKEditor Extended“. Here you can add new settings, configure extra rules for htmlawed to trust specific elements or schemes:

settings plugin elgg arvixe

edit settings plugin ckeditor elgg arvixe5. After saving your custom settings, you will be able to see the different tools that CKEditor offers for your site:
