CK Editor — Standard
About This HTML Editor
The above HTML editor is known as "CKEditor". Similar to TinyMCE Editor, CKEditor is an open source HTML text editor.
Developers can use CKEditor in their own projects. For example, you could install CKEditor into your organization's content management system so that content providers can update the corporate website or intranet.
Setting up CKEditor
This provides a standard toolbar — one with the most commonly used options.
For the full-featured toolbar, see CKEditor — Full.
CKEditor is chock-full of features. Here are some as listed on the CKEditor website.
Features for End Users
Some of the key features for end users include:
Basic & advanced styling
Apply basic styles like bold and italic with ease, as well as more complex styling and semantic rules defined by the website developer. Rich styles, under control.
Properly quote text using the correct and semantics-aware <blockquote> tag. Other editors simply focus on the visuals, adding margins to standard paragraphs (that's so 90s).
Plain text may be boring. It’s sometimes nice to distinguish or highlight text with color or give tables more personality. With the color selector this job is a few clicks away.
Advanced paste from Word
Most content is written in Microsoft Word and web browsers use HTML. CKEditor's powerful and unique Paste from Word feature makes it easy to convert text.
Other than creating usual web links with ease, CKEditor makes it possible to build advanced links that can open popups, links to anchors, e-mails or any kind of web resource.
Creating e-mail links with CKEditor is as simple as inserting the desired e-mail address. Even the message subject and text can be set, so e-mails will be pre-compiled.
Features for Developers
Some of the key features for developers include:
Customizable & extensible
It's possible to customize every single aspect of the editor, from the toolbar, to the skin, to dialogs, to the context menu, data parsing, styling, etc. Our plugin system makes it easy to separate your custom logic from the editor core.
Total toolbar control
Too many features can make things difficult for users. Even the toolbar arrangement is important. With CKEditor you can customize the interface by keeping the tools you need, offering full control of the editor’s functions.
Create, interact and destroy editor instances with ease, minimizing server-side communication and offering a rich user experience. CKEditor is in line with present and future applications.
Easy textarea replacement
<textarea> fields in your pages is a simple task. You can use CSS classes for that, decide which to replace by code, or even replace all of them with ease.
