Introduction#

This guide describes how to manually integrate FCK Editor with JspWiki.

JSPWiki 2.7.x or 2.8.x#

JSPWiki 2.7 now has support for FCKeditor 2.6. However, since JSPWiki 2.7/2.8 is a development version, you may want to use the last stable release of JSPWiki instead (version 2.6).

Deployment Instructions#

  1. First you should have JSPWiki 2.7.x or 2.8.x installed.
  2. Download the 2.6.3 version of FCKeditor and extract the zip file into your $JSPWiki_Home/scripts/ directory. This should overwrite the existing fckeditor subdirectory.
  3. Download the FCK.jar(info) file attached to this page and place it in your $JSPWiki_Home/WEB-INF/lib/ directory.
  4. That's it! Go ahead and (re)start JSPWiki and you should see 'FCK' as an option on the 'Editor' dropdown list found under 'My Prefs'.

Note:

  • You might need xercesImpl.jar and xml-apis.jar from http://xerces.apache.org/xerces2-j/download.cgi in your $JSPWiki_Home/WEB-INF/lib/ directory if you receive error messages when attempting to save a page.
  • Newer patch versions of FCKeditor 2.6.x may become available and will likely work okay with JSPWiki. However, it is recommended that you use the version provided in the download link above since that is the version which has been tested.

CKEditor 3.1#

Thomas Senay implemented support for CKEditor 3.1, see JSPWIKI-623.

JSPWiki 2.6.x#

FCKeditor integration is now working in JSPWiki 2.6 and it now performs a much safer html-to-wiki markup translation.

Deployment Instructions#

  1. First you should have JSPWiki 2.6.x installed.
  2. Download the 2.4.3 version of FCKeditor and extract the zip file into your $JSPWiki_Home/scripts/ directory. This should overwrite the existing fckeditor subdirectory.
  3. Download the FCK.jar(info) file attached to this page and place it in your $JSPWiki_Home/WEB-INF/lib/ directory.
  4. That's it! Go ahead and (re)start JSPWiki and you should see 'FCK' as an option on the 'Editor' dropdown list found under 'My Prefs'.

Note:

  • Version 2.6 of FCKeditor is also working fine with JSPWiki 2.6.x or 2.8.x --DF, 30 Oct 08.

FCKEditor toolbar skin#

The FCK-Editor has a skinnable toolbar. If you wanna improve to looks of the toolbar and better align with the great FamFamFam icons used in the plain-editor, you can change the skin like this:

  • Create a new directory in scripts/fckeditor/editor/skins/famfamfamAluminum and copy the downloaded files here
  • Activate the skin by editing scripts/fckconfig.js: change the FCKConfig.SkinPath variable to point to the newly created directory. (around line 52)

That's it. Enjoy the great new look-n-feel. --DF, 30 Oct 08

JSPWiki 2.4.x#

FCKeditor integration in JSPWiki 2.4.x was disabled because there was much difficulty in deploying it, and also because even when it was successfully deployed, there were too many serious problems with the html-to-wiki markup translation (e.g. loss of plugin syntax, ACL, and other wiki markup).
