Install instructions

Download the files included in the mod to your computer. The following files will need altering before the plugin can function:

  • application/config/ckeditor/posts.js
  • application/config/ckeditor/news_messages.js

In both files, you will need to make the following edits:

  • Change the config.baseHref value to your site's root URL
  • Change the config.contentsCss value to the path of the content.css file of your site (the path from /application/ onwards is already present)

If your site is installed to a subdirectory (e.g., you must also edit the following files, adding said directory to the customConfig value:

  • application/config/ckeditor/manage_logs_js.php
  • application/config/ckeditor/manage_news_js.php
  • application/config/ckeditor/manage_posts_js.php
  • application/config/ckeditor/messages_write_js.php
  • application/config/ckeditor/write_missionpost_js.php
  • application/config/ckeditor/write_newsitem_js.php
  • application/config/ckeditor/write_personallog_js.php

If you use a skin other than default or titan, then you will need to make changes to the skin's template_admin.php file to add the script tags which pull in the CKEditor plugin. You can use the provided files for the default and titan skins as examples (just search them for ckeditor).

You may need to alter the default styles for the editor content area to match your skin. These styles are stored in application/views/_base_override/admin/css/content.css. Changes to this file will affect all skins which pull in CKEditor. If you wish to allow changes to this file on a per-skin basis, follow the instructions here
