  • Hello!

    I updated from CKEditor 1.9 to 2.0 (updated Elgg also from 1.x to 2.x) but the only change I can see now is the "toggle html-editor" button. My settings-code worked fine previously. Has the syntax changed?

    ['JustifyLeft','JustifyCenter','JustifyRight','JustifyBlock'], [ 'Styles', 'Format', 'FontSize', 'Scayt' ]],

  • @darthvader there should be no reason for the settings to no longer work as far as i know... if you do not see the editor, then there probably is a javascript error. Check for those in the developer log of your browser (hit f12)

  • how do i enable spell check .. bzc i only get cut, copy & paste ..

  • @meril you should be able to find all you need on the documentation site of ckeditor!/guide/dev_spellcheck

  • Hi, the plugin is not working with Elgg Release - 2.3.4, Version - 2016092300.

    If the plug is enabled ontop of the core (bundled) ckeditor plug, all the menus disappear.

    Dear Jeroen Dalsem, I am using  CKEditor Extended Version 3.2 for Elgg 2.3.8 with Asset_library downloaded from  Code repository : . This plugin works like a charm for me and the best part is I get the editor options in mobile as well, and I get the image upload and browse functionality as well. So, I am very thankful, and grateful to your open source generous work. I just have request that is would it be possible for you to add the following ckeditor add-ons (plugins):

    SlideShow / Nivo Slider, QRCode generator, HTML5 video & Video

    At minimum if you can add SlideShow, it would add tremendous value to your plugin that will help us to generate beautiful Blog/ New Contents with Image Sliders. Your kind thoughts and consideration would be highly appreciated. 

    @page { margin: 0.79in }
    h3.cjk { font-family: "WenQuanYi Zen Hei Sharp" }
    h3.ctl { font-family: "Lohit Devanagari" }
    p { margin-bottom: 0.1in; line-height: 120% }
    a:link { so-language: zxx }
