What you can do to help:

This editor replaces TinyMCE and allows image uploading.

Last updated

Release 1.0 The issues with having multiple instances of CKEditor running on the same page problem are fixed. Let me know if you find any other bugs, there is an error with the developer edition of google chrome, but that has to do with the browser itself, this has been tested with firefox, IE, and the non-dev version of google chrome.

Also Included support for Blogs and the Save Draft Feature.The save draft will save your draft for the blog entry your editing, if you leave to do something else, as long as its the same session (ie you dont log out) it will still be there when you go back.If you go to edit a different blog post and save that draft the other draft changes will be lost.

About the Plugin

CKEditor is a fully re-written version of FCKEditor. This editor replaces TinyMCE and allows users to upload images through the editor.

When an image is uploaded it creates a file in the file plugin under that user. We are using this on a lives site that doesn't use the files plugin but if you do and you don't want images clogging it up then this might not be for you.

*** This plugin works fine with a Elgg install on a dedicated server but some people experience issues on shared hosting. ***


  • Disable TinyMCE
  • Upload CKEditor into the mods folder
  • Enable CKEditor in the tools administration
