Yii 1.1: ckkceditor

WYSIWYG textarea using CMS ckEditor + kcFinder in one extension

Fixed an old ckEditor extension and I added a File Browser to Upload and insert images on any given path. Great for CMS.


Yii 1.1 or above)...


    "model"=>$model,                # Data-Model
    "attribute"=>'descripcion',         # Attribute in the Data-Model

Add id to element

To add an id attribute to the generated textarea element. in the file ckeditor_php5.php (or ckeditor_php4.php), change the line :

$out = "<textarea name=\"" . $name . "\"" . $attr . ">" . htmlspecialchars($value) . "</textarea>\n";


$element_id = str_replace("[", "_", $name);
   $element_id = str_replace("]", "", $element_id);
   $out = "<textarea name=\"" . $name . "\" id=\"" . $element_id . "\" " . $attr . ">" . htmlspecialchars($value) . "</textarea>\n";

yiiframework.com comment editor

I wonder if yii developers who used this editor below on commenting field could share it with us as an extension )

meanwhile, this extension works great except that file browser works only when updating and not when creating post.. so this part:


i changed to this:


and now it works fine

Basic Toolbar

For anyone trying to figure out how to use the "Basic" toolbar set, add this to your config:

'config' => array('toolbar' => 'Basic'),

@Vedran session problem ! when use another session saving strategy,may meet some problem

may be i found the solution ,but haven't tried it : please read this doc carefully : http://kcfinder.sunhater.com/docs/integrate

in the kcfinder-2.51\core dir there is a autoload.php file. you should implements your own's SessionSaveHandler , this should be same logic with the yii's CDbHttpSession , so you should read the yii's session table and operate it from the SessionSaveHandler class these two class share the same table , yes may be this is the key!! but i haven't tried it . hope it help you!

Re: License

Probably because CKeditor uses GPL/LGPL, see: http://ckeditor.com/license

Why is this licensed under GPL?? Yii is licensed BSD and anything like this should be also.

Trouble displaying editor

I'm sure i am missing something simple but i cannot get editor to display. Elements are created and JS loaded but editor does not display.

I am trying a simple test

        "model"=>Person::model()->findByPk(2),                # Data-Model
        "attribute"=>'last_name',         # Attribute in the Data-Model
        'toolbar' => array(
            array('Maximize', 'ShowBlocks','-','About')
    ) ));

One thing i find suspicious is that the text area created does not contain an id attribute

<textarea cols="60" rows="8" name="Person[last_name]" style="display: none;">Nguyen</textarea>
<script type="text/javascript">//<![CDATA[
CKEDITOR.replace('Person[last_name]', { "height": "400px", "width": "100%", "toolbar": [ [ "Link", "Unlink", "Anchor" ], [ "Styles", "Format", "Font", "FontSize" ], [ "TextColor", "BGColor" ], [ "Maximize", "ShowBlocks", "-", "About" ] ] });

What am i missing? Any thoughts?

Customizing toolbars

To customize the toolbar, you must use PHP arrays and not a string containing JavaScript arrays. Like so:

'config' => array(
    'toolbar' => array(
        array('BidiLtr', 'BidiRtl' ),
        array('Maximize', 'ShowBlocks','-','About')

Also, don't for get the bug mentioned by huanito and undsoft.

Config problem.

To make config work, change:

line 81 from: $oCKeditor->Config[$key] = $value; to $oCKeditor->config[$key] = $value;
