hi max,

   i've used FCKEditor for years - i have yet to look at CKeditor.

   this editor does not directly connect to a db.  think of it as a glorified form element.  use _samples/sample_posteddata.php to install it within a PHP context.  once you get it working a  form element, you'll want to built PHP code to be able to process the form element and save the data to a db (or wherever you are storing it).

   the documentation for FCKEditor was always somewhat sparse, but searching google will provide some examples.  over the years, i've been able to customize the toolbar and to augment the file/image upload to source my own internal list of files (fed from my db).  it's a good editor.

   if you have any specific questions, feel free to contact me directly.

Hello everyone, I'm very new HTML having recently just taken a few community college classes at Seattle Central College where I learned about the FCK Editor and it's new and improved version the CKeditor (the newest version of the renamed FCK Editor). I'm trying to add the CKeditor (v3) to my site and have been struggling with this for a few weeks due to lack of comprehensive documentation which a newb such as myself can follow and properly execute. I am trying to make an editable template page for my website, but I'm I'm having problems getting the CKEditor to behave in the manner that It is suppose to. My goals using the CKEditor are:

1. To have text pages that look normal to those who are not logged in to my site and are not admins (who've entered edit mode).
2. To be able to edit instances of my pages using the CKEditor (where instances have been installed) so that I or others who have admin access can edit the pages on the fly so to speak without my having to constantly re-upload pages. My understanding is that that this is what CKEditor will allow to happen (prior to this I was iFraming google docs - I think the CKEditor will allow me to do more, but i need help. I've gone to [url]http://docs.fckeditor.net/CKEditor_3.x/Developers_Guide[/url]) and followed the instructions but I appear to only have a demo vs. a working model (one which i can edit text into and it will remain after refreshing the browser, etc.) So far i've done the following: 1. I've successfully uploaded the CKEditor to my site and installed and integrated it according to the posted CKEditor instructions as demonstated by this link [url]http://xpg.us/rules/rules2b.php[/url] Is there a more comprehensive set of instructions and documentation for installing and getting the CKEditor up and running that anyone knows of? Can anyone help me? I know i need to do things like create a sql table for the CKEditor, but I don't know any of the specifics of what the CKEditor wants, what it wants the table called or how to customize the CKEditor so it can use the existing tables I built for the FCKeditor. Any help or assistance is appreciated Chez
