plugins are not working for the InputfieldCKEditor module.

Recommended Posts

I installed the InputfieldCKEditor module and am using the ck editor in all of the fields on my processwire website.  I need to be able to drag images into the CKEditor field so I downloaded a CKEditor plugin called simpleuploads put it into /site/modules/InputfieldCKEditor/plugins/ and added the plugin to the field I am working on.  I have tried doing it many different ways and the plugins still are not working and I have no idea where to go from here.

I am working with processwire version 3.0.61.

I am using CKEditor version 4.4.2.

I think your issue is not due to any general problem with adding plugins for CKEditor, but due to the fact that images in PW must be stored in an image field. CKEditor is a third-party tool so by itself it doesn't have any idea about PW image fields. Theoretically a person could make a custom CKEditor plugin that could add images to a PW image field but to my knowledge no such plugin is available. So for now you will need to first add your images to an image field and then add them to CKEditor from there.

      A few usability tweaks and tips for the CKEditor "Styles" dropdown, which is by default not that user-friendly:

      As you can see it's small and if you add custom items to it they may look awkward as they may inherit styles from their targets (a 3rem bottom margin in the screenshot above).
      These are relatively easy to fix but you have to load your custom CSS files to two places (eg. with AdminOnSteroids): PW admin and CKEditor.
      After loading the CSS/Js assets (see code below) the dropdown looks nicer and more usable:

      The screencap contains other features that you can achieve with the snippets below.
      Code
      CSS - CKEditor (contains demo styles too)
      CSS - admin
      JavaScript - CKEditor custom styles
      P.s. in case you wonder whether the half-margin, no-margin stuff and font-sizes from 12px to 48px were real-life examples - yes, client request 🙂

      Hi, I have created a new install of Processwire 3.0.98, (local machine) and I am unable to install any modules from within Processwire itself. I go to Modules/Site/Add New/ then under "Module Class Name" I enter the name. The module appears, I hit "Download and Install", but I always get an error. For example: 
      "File could not be downloaded (https://github.com/adrianbj/TracyDebugger/archive/master.zip) 2: fsockopen(): SSL operation failed with code 1. OpenSSL Error messages: error:1407742E:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:tlsv1 alert protocol version, 2: fsockopen(): Failed to enable crypto, 2: fsockopen(): unable to connect to ssl://github.com:443 (Unknown error) (tried: curl, fopen, socket)"
      I have been able to track down some of the modules and just upload the zip file manually, but this is happening with every module that I had previously installed in another installation with no problems. Any ideas? 
      Thanks!
