HTML editor: plugins and skins custom

I'm using your extension to create an section to admin the content in a web site (created with bootstrap front-end framework).
Now, I'd like to enable in the html editor toolbar some plugins:
http://ckeditor.com/addons/layout

Is it possibile with the CKEditor's version included in your extension, add these plugins (or new skins)?

Thanks.
Regards,
Michele

Do you know if is available a plugin similar to this for your extension?

The HTML Editor Extension just adds CKEditor to your site.

you can add custom plugins, but it will require editing the code.

The CKEditor files get installed to the webassist/ckeditor foldder.

follow the instruction from the plugin download for adding the new plugin to the plugins directory, then edit the HTML Editor code to add the new plugin to the toolbar array.

same for any custom skins, follow the CKEditor directions for adding the skin to the CKEditor install, then edit the code for HTML Editor to uuse the new skin.

Hi Jason,
which is the CKEditor's version used in your extension?

In the webassist/ckeditor/changes.html file is indicated 3.5.2, but I think that's impossible because is three years old (and not exist nothing plugins/skins more compatible with this old version)...

Thanks

Data Bridge 1.1.3 uses CKEditor 4

If you have a previous version, than it will use CKEditor 3.

you can manually update the CKEdiotor files by downloading it from the CKEditor download page:
http://ckeditor.com/download

click the CKBuilder link. In CKBuilder, select the Full Preset, and the Kama skin.


then rename the /webassist/ckeditor folder to ckeditor_back

copy the ckeditor folder from the download to the webassist folder to replace the old one.

from the ckeditor_back folder, copy the following three files:
ckeditor.php
ckeditor-php4.php
ckeditor-php5.php


and paste them in the new ckeditor folder.

you will need to clear the browsers cache to see the updates take effect.

How to change the skin from "kama" to "moon"?
Thanks

Jason ByrnesWebAssist

after you download and instal the moon theme, find the following line on the page you have added HTML Editor:

$CKEditor_config["skin"] = "kama";

and change it to:
$CKEditor_config["skin"] = "moon";

Hi Jason... if I use "moono" instead "kama" skin, do I lost anything (features, stability) with your extension? HTML editor included in DataBridge works better with kama skin?

Thanks

Any custom skins or plugins that you add to CKEditor may be overwritten by HTML Editor if you make changes or add another instanced.

Ok, thanks.
I hope to see, in feature release, the moono skin set default.
Kama skin is very old... obviously for my personal opinion.

Thank you very much for your support.

Michele
