This module allows Drupal to replace textarea fields with the FCKeditor - a visual HTML editor, sometimes called WYSIWYG editor. This HTML text editor brings many of the powerful WYSIWYG editing functions of known desktop editors like Word to the web. It's relatively lightweight and doesn't require any kind of installation on the client computer.
CKEditor module: we received lots of user requests asking for the CKEditor module. CKEditor is the next version of FCKeditor. Just wanted to let you know that the first stable release of the CKEditor module is now available, it is very similar to the 6.x-2.x version of the FCKeditor module.
Note: This module is not affiliated with the WYSIWYG module. WYSIWYG offers in principle the same: an FCKeditor (or other editors) instead of normal textareas. The approach of WYSIWYG is slightly different, and users unsatisfied with the FCKeditor module are encouraged to try out the WYSIWYG module (and vice versa).
Please visit the demo site to see a sample installation of Drupal with FCKeditor enabled.

The integrated file management needs a bit of manual configuration, more information about this is in the included readme.txt file.
At the moment there are several options for using images in FCKeditor.
- The built in filemanager, which needs some manual configuration.
- The IMCE module which needs almost no configuration.
- The Image Browser module
- The Web File Manager module (available in FCKeditor dev release only at this moment)
- The Image Assist module
- The upload module - which allows file and image attachments to nodes. By copying the URL of the attachment you can use it in the FCKeditor dialog.
Please remember that enabling visitors to upload files to your site can be a serious security risk, don't give that access to users you don't trust... and exercise caution anyway.
