Now it’s time to speed up our recruitment process. CKSource is looking for bright and talented JavaScript developers to join our ranks!

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 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!

CKEditor 4.0.1.1 Released

We would like to inform the community that we have just released CKEditor 4.0.1.1. 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.

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.

CKEditor 4.0.1 Released

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.

We recommend updating all installations of CKFinder. Version 2.3.1 also includes a few localization updates and new language: Serbian.
