CKEditor - customizing and empowering the toolbar

Mon 4 Jun 2018, 06:36 PM



by Ben Langhinrichs
Purpose of the series.
With the addition of the highly customizable CKEditor rich text editor into XPages, I thought we'd see a number of interesting uses, but if so, they aren't showing up much. I have recently been pushing my way through the lack of useful documentation, and have decided to post a series of posts to explain  each step of this process. I should note, some of these steps will include use of our AppsFidelity product, but only some and only for the purpose of illustrating where things can be extended. Also, I will be demonstrating this for both Classic and XPages.
 
I am doing this as an IBM Champion series, but I would like nothing more than for others to weigh in with ways to do these things better. I have a number of talents, but I am no JavaScript expert. On the bright side, that means everything I show you will be at least modestly possible for others who are not JavaScript experts. Of course, you experts will probably run circles around me, but if so, please share so we can all benefit and learn from your brilliance. (Please no snarkiness about Classic web design or about XPages. People use both. Deal with it.)
