Missing ckeditor.php

For all you guy's having the same problem, there's no ckeditor.php file in the zip file for the latest version (4.4.0).

Simply download the oldest from the website (, and extract ckeditor.php and ckeditor_php4.php and ckeditor_php5.php, add them to ckeditor folder and that's it, all is working.

Where can I get ckeditor.php file.


I saw the configuration and the usage, as you have mentioned above. The place where I have been stuck is, I want to know what should I put in the ckfinder.php file. I think it is for initialization, but what should I put in there..?

A little fix

Thanks, But if you want it to work on Linux, you should replace: application.extensions.TheCKEditor.theCKEditorWidget with application.extensions.TheCKEditor.TheCKEditorWidget

download link provided

sorry I forget to put the download link here, since the project is on github it's best to get the latest version there. by the way the download file is most updated one so far. (i try to keep it update)
