Adobe ended support of Flash Player on December 31, 2020 and blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player beginning January 12, 2021. We have decided to deprecate and remove the Flash plugin starting from CKEditor 4.17 to help protect users’ systems and discourage using insecure software.
This plugin comes with a dialog to manage flash embed in the document, set standard and advanced properties (like scale, quality, alignment, background color, stylesheet classes). Flash files can be uploaded to the server and browsed if editor is intergrated with file manager (like CKFinder).
This is an official plugin provided and supported by CKEditor developers.
The recommended way to install all CKEditor add-ons is to create a custom build by using Online builder. To do that, click the Add to my editor button on the plugin page. When you are done, click the Build my editor button on the right side of the page to go to Online builder.
Note: This add-on is already selected to be a part of your current build.
Add-on installation instructions
If you want to add the plugin manually, you will need to:
- Extract the downloaded plugin
pluginsfolder of your CKEditor installation. Example:
- Enable the plugin by using the
extraPluginsconfiguration setting. Example:
config.extraPlugins = 'flash';
- Download and configure all its dependencies, too.
No additional dependencies.
