    Integrating another RTE, CKEditor


    I was wondering if there is an easy way to integrate a different RTE in to Umbraco, say CKEditor? Am I able to create a new data type and leverage a user control to allow for it? As I recall, TinyMCE is pretty heavily tied in to Umbraco, but can't remember if we can integrate a new editor. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Phillip

    You can't use user control directly for creating datatypes in Umbraco 7 since it's based on angularjs - However it can interact with a service, that could be based on a user control.

    But yes CKEditor could indeed be made as a property editor, which could be used instead of tinymce. If you decide to use v6 instead you can use usercontrols as you're used to. No matter, which version of Umbraco you're using it is possible to create CKEditor datatype/property editor.

    If you need some more information about building property editors for v7 you can find some documenation here

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Phillip

    If you still are looking for using ckEditor in Umbraco 7 (7.1+), you might take a look at uCKEditor.

    Even it's in beta and there might be some issues, it seems to be a great alternative to TinyMCE editor.
