CKEditor fixed: Day 1 - tabbed tables

Fri 19 Nov 2010, 10:57 AM



by Ben Langhinrichs
I have made a few snarky posts about Domino 8.5.2 and the embedded CKEditor, but I am in the business of fixing problems, not casting blame.  Therefore, here is my first fix for one of the Top 10 enhancements people want to see in the CKEditor that Mary Beth Raven identified, tabbed tables.  Just to be a show-off, I use nested tabbed tables.  To be clear, my fix requires our software product.

In this series of screenshots, I am using CoexEdit in its "no design change" mode, meaning that I create a database based on IBM's Discussion: Notes & Web (8.5.2)  template unmodified.  I make no changes to the design at all.  An administrator without Designer could install and implement this solution. As a change from my previous posts, I am going to show the fixed version first, so those of you who already know what the current version is like can just see the first few slides.

Since my blog cuts the images off, click on any one to pop that image into its own window
