I am using Ckeditor in drupal 7.26. I placed HTML Content with link tag in the source of Ckeditor. It removes link tag. I want to send my css file through that html content. How can I add it into the editor.

  • Considering the <link> tag is only valid inside the <head> of a document, and I can't think of a situation where you would be using CKEditor to edit the <head>, even if you could solve this, what use would it be other than to make sure your document is invalid?

  • Yeah, I Placed link tag in <head> section but it removes Head tags along with <link> tag

  • So you're adding a <head> section in CKEditor? That's probably the problem. It's not valid to include <head> inside <body>. It needs to be a direct descendant of <html>, which you don't have access to in CKEditor (usually)

  • Without head tag also it removes <link> tag

  • I think it does not accept <link> tag in <body>

As Clive said there is almost certainly no situation that CKeditor can validly edit/create an html head element. Since link must be a child of a head element this means that CKEditor cannot create a valid link element.

That being said there is a way to add a stylesheet the the CKEditor. You will have to allow JavaScript in whatever filter you are using (so use with caution) and then insert a script like this:

  (function($) {
    $('head').apend("<link rel='stylesheet' href='my/added/stylesheet.css'>");

Or if you don't want to use jQuery:

  var element = document.createElement("link");
  element.setAttribute("rel", "stylesheet");
  element.setAttribute("href", "/my/added/stylesheet.css");
