How to setup FCKeditor
To start with you need to download the latest stable release of [FCKeditor](http://www.fckeditor.net/download "Download"). Extract the downloaded file and place the <i>fckeditor/</i> folder in your applications webroot directory. Next to do is to download the Yii FCKeditor [extension](http://www.yiiframework.com/extension/fckeditor-integration/ "Download"), created by Ascomae. Extract the downloaded file, and place the <i>fckeditor/</i> widget folder in your web applications <i>protected/extensions/</i> directory. ## Configuring the FCKeditorWidget In the view where you want to use the FCKeditorWidget: ~~~ [php] <?php $this->widget('application.extensions.fckeditor.FCKEditorWidget',array(
'model' => $model, 'attribute'=> 'Text', 'height' => '400px', 'width' => '100%', 'fckeditor' => dirname(Yii::app()->basePath).'/fckeditor/fckeditor.php', 'fckBasePath' => Yii::app()->baseUrl.'/fckeditor/') );?> ~~~ + the <b>model</b> property is the instance of the Model to be associated with. + <b>attribute</b> the Model attribute to be associated with. + <b>fckeditor</b>, the path to the fckeditor php file. + <b>fckBasePath</b>, the url to the editor frontend to be loaded inside the iframe.
