CKEditor doesn’t natively include a file manager. For that, CKSource offers CKFinder, a powerful Ajax application that integrates seamlessly with CKEditor.

CKEditor is a standards-compliant (W3C) HTML editor so it corrects code if it doesn’t follow current web standards. Most browsers also have their own interpretation of HTML.

CKEditor 4.1 introduced a feature called Advanced Content Filter (ACF), which matches input data to the editor configuration and toolbar. For instance, if your toolbar doesn’t include the Bold button, CKEditor will strip bold tags from the source code.

The core team is currently working on a video plugin. In the meantime use one of the many community plugins from our Add-ons repository, or simply use the iFrame button to embed video links.

Please verify that your issue hasn’t already been added to the development site. The core development team defines the list of priorities so it is not possible to determine when a specific bug will be fixed. It is recommended that you keep a close eye on tickets that interest you.
