CKEditor Installation Guide

What's CKEditor?

CKEditor is a text editor to be used inside web pages. It's not a replacement for desktop text editors like Word or OpenOffice, but a component to be used as part of web applications and web sites.


Installing CKEditor is an easy task. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Download the latest version of the editor from our web site: You should have already completed this step, but be sure you have the very latest version.
