Basically, there is no "install". You extract the files contained within the .zip file into the root directory of the website you are working on, make some modifications to the application.cfm, jsconfig.js, and two of the config files (explained in the wiki), and test. Well, at least that's all one has to do if you're using it in ColdFusion - not sure about the others, like php or asp.JD
What I did for my website:1. Expanded the .zip file into the root of my web directory.2. Opened http://wiki.fckeditor.net/ to get the instructions.3. Clicked on the link for "Installing FCKEditor" and saw that I pretty much already did what it said to.4. Clicked on the link for ColdFusion and followed those instructions, which were: a. Modify the specified lines of the /FCKeditor/jsconfig.js file b. Modify the specified lines of the /FCKeditor/editor/blahblahblah/cfm/connector/config.cfm file c. Modify the specified lines of the /FCKeditor/editor/blahblahblah/cfm/default/browser/config.cfm file d. Modify my application.cfm file to include the lines as instructed by the wiki (setting application scope variables) e. Modify my application.cfm file to also set the same variables in the request scope5. Used the sample code in the wiki to get it to work within the form I created:
basePath = "fckeditor/";
fckEditor = createObject("component", "#basePath#fckeditor");
fckEditor.instanceName = "itemContents";
fckEditor.value = "#trim(session.content.itemContents)#";
fckEditor.basePath = basePath;
fckEditor.width = "700";
fckEditor.height = 350;
fckEditor.create(); // create the editor.
And tested it. Had to do SOME tweaking, but it works. If you've been web editing "forever", then it really isn't difficult. Maybe slightly time consuming, but not difficult.JD
Poor me, and poor us... I suppose, jnorris235 you are looking after the same thing: a good and free wysiwyg homesite-editor. I still don't know what the fckeditor does. I suppose, that is a site you can use inside the homesite for the users. Like guestbook, but much more advanced. I don't know, why it is difficult to explain, maybe it takes some years of higher education to understand what the fckeditor is. Never mind: I feel instinctively that is not what we want. I found the best editor: First page on http://www.evrsoft.com/ It is freeware, but I beleive, it is better than Dreamweaver. That is perfect both for beginners and advanced users.(I didn't use it, I just opened it, so maybe I'll be disappointed)
