Web accessibility testing - DIY!
Every website should pass through an accessibility audit to check if it is really inclusive for every user willing to use your product. However, very often you do not have the time or funds to go for a complete, professional audit. Sometimes it is enough to check the basics and increase the accessibility on your own. This checklist will help you perform a basic web accessibility audit to ensure that some common accessibility issues present on your site will be wiped out with a reasonable effort.
Practical web accessibility guide
Creating a website nowadays is much easier than it used to be several years ago. New tools, frameworks, and libraries allow you to create a unique and unforgettable experience for your users. But at the same time, new challenges emerge. Making the whole thing accessible is one of them.

Lessons learned from creating a rich-text editor with real-time collaboration
Real-time collaboration is a feature we wanted to introduce since the inception of CKEditor 5. The research that we made back in 2012 and some failed attempts that we observed all around showed us that full support for collaborative editing for rich-text data cannot be added on top of existing projects. A proper architecture has to be designed and implemented from scratch, with real-time collaboration treated as a first-class citizen in the entire project.

Build a WYSIWYG editor in-house or use an off-the-shelf solution?

CKSource Is Hiring JS Developers!
So You Think You Found a Bug?
Bug submissions are one of the most misinterpreted and misused requests in any Open Source community. They’re often falsely reported, but left unanswered they put a blemish on any given project. This forces developers to spend time clarifying how such reports aren’t really bugs – time which could be better spent elsewhere.
CKEditor 4.1.1 Released
We would like to announce the release of CKEditor 4.1.1. This is a minor bug-fixing release that follows a major release, CKEditor 4.1, which was published last month. CKEditor 4.1.1 includes a new localization (Albanian) as well as over a dozen of fixes.
New and Improved License Options!
In the continuing spirit of CKEditor’s 10 Year Anniversary we would like to announce our new and improved license offers! Gone are the old Website, Corporate Websites and OEM options in favor of the simpler Basic, Professional and Enterprise licenses. More importantly, CKSource now has a dedicated Sales phone number to help you make your purchases!
CKEditor 10 Year Anniversary Recap!
The CKEditor 10 Year Anniversary has come to an end and we would like to thank the community for participating! The various charity actions, the Twitter t-shirt contest and Warsaw party exeeded our expectations. CKEditor’s historical milestone was a great success and we have you to thank!
Upgrading to CKEditor 4.1
CKEditor 4.1 introduced an innovative set of features that we dubbed Advanced Content Filter (ACF in short). These features change the way that the editor deals with input data, so upgrading to version 4.1 requires some understanding of what has changed. More importantly, you will need to take into account the fact that since CKEditor 4.1 content filtering is now turned on by default and will affect all data that is input into the editor, including content created in the past and stored in your database or website. Failure to understand what ACF is about and incorrect ACF implementation might result in data loss.
CKEditor 4.1 Released
We are happy to announce the final release of CKEditor 4.1 with its groundbreaking new feature, Advanced Content Filter. After a successful stabilization phase following the release of CKEditor 4.1 RC we are really excited to publish this latest major release with a plethora of new features and a few fixes.
CKEditor 4.0.3 Released
We would like to announce the release of CKEditor 4.0.3. This is a minor bug-fixing release that precedes a major release, CKEditor 4.1, with its cutting-edge new features like Advanced Content Filter. Please note this is the last CKEditor release without content filtering turned on by default.
Integrating Plugins with Advanced Content Filter
CKEditor 4.1 is just around the corner, so it is a final call for all plugin developers to update their code in order to comply with content filtering that the new editor version introduces. CKEditor 4.1 Release Candidate was released on March 6, 2013, and the final release is coming very soon.
CKEditor 4.0.2 Released
We are happy to announce the release of CKEditor 4.0.2. This latest update brings a variety of important fixes and changes to CKEditor, including a few browser-specific updates and a couple of skin fixes. You are also welcome to try out CKEditor 4.1 RC. It introduces many new features not included in version 4.0.2.
CKEditor 4.1 RC Released
The team is proud to announce the release of CKEditor 4.1 RC. This version introduces a variety of new and exciting features that will greatly enhance CKEditor’s configurability. Among other things, 4.1 RC includes something we call Advanced Content Filter (ACF) - a set of options that give you more control over content accepted by CKEditor. This Release Candidate should give everyone plenty of time to adjust to the new additions.
CKSource Donates 10% of Revenue
In addition to the various CKEditor 10 Year Anniversary activities sponsored by CKSource, we would like to announce that 10% of all gross revenue will be donated to different charities over the next weeks!

CKEditor 126.96.36.199 Released
We would like to inform the community that we have just released CKEditor 188.8.131.52. This is a minor hotfix for the XSS vulnerability that was discovered yesterday, and as such does not include any other fixes or enhancements. It’s not the much awaited 4.1 release, which should be out soon. We recommend upgrading to keep your system as secure as possible.
Did You Know? CKEditor Is Web Standards-Compliant
Today we will publish the first in a series of Did You Know blog posts that will hopefully improve people’s understanding of CKEditor. Many issues in the community forums and dev site turn out to be false alarms, forcing the core team to spend time explaining CKEditor’s internal mechanism and how it interacts with browsers and websites. WYSIWYG web text editors are the proverbial black sheep when it comes to taking the blame for things they are not responsible for, so we hope this column will shed light on common misconceptions.
CKEditor Joins Drupal
Great news for CKEditor and its community: Drupal, one of the most used CMS platforms in the world, decided that CKEditor 4 will be the editor included inside Drupal 8, which should be hitting the market by the end of 2013.
Intro to Customizing CKEditor 4
The arrival of CKEditor 4 introduced three important website features that affect how the editor is customized. First, CKEditor now has three main Download Packages: Basic, Standard and Full. Second, the new website has an Add-ons Repository where community-made plugins can be freely uploaded and shared. Third, complimenting the repository is a feature called CKBuilder that lets you add or remove plugins, skins and languages from the download packages. The idea was to create a lean default editor while simplify the customization process.

The CKEditor team is happy to announce the release of CKEditor 4.0.1. This latest update introduces a slew of changes. For starters, a few issues have been corrected in Magicline, a new CKEditor 4 feature that allows you to place the cursor around elements that normally cause positioning trouble, like tables and line breaks. The team is particularly proud of this feature as it offers a unique and user-friendly solution to a problem that is present in most WYSIWYG web text editors.
