I have made custom plugin for ckeditor in drupal ckeditor module. The page where I am displaying CKEDITOR is loaded through AJAX and I am doing a replace div to show the CKEDITOR. the code for replaceDiv is:

function replaceDiv( div )
    if ( editor )

    editor = CKEDITOR.replace( div ,
        toolbar : 'Basic'/*'Basic'*/

But, the problem is that in this way I am not getting my custom plugin displayed, I tried adding my control name in the toolbar definition in the array but it seems that I am not doing in the right way since it is not working!


In ckeditor.config.js you need something like this:

CKEDITOR.editorConfig = function(config) {
  config.extraPlugins = 'vicheck';
  CKEDITOR.plugins.addExternal('vicheck', '/sites/all/plugins/ckeditor/vicheck/');
  config.toolbar_DrupalBasic = [ [ 'Bold', 'Italic', '-', 'vicheck' ] ];

where vicheck is a plugin.

This works for me using an old CKEditor module. I don't know if the latest versions have any change.

  • using this syntax do i need to modify the replaceDiv() code? – Firdous Dec 20 '11 at 11:51
  • b/c apparently its not working.. – Firdous Dec 20 '11 at 13:12
  • You have two separate question: add plugins into CKEditor, and use CKEditor on an Ajax page. Try do answer each first. My solution could solve the first problem, for the second I don't know, and I don't know the replaceDiv function. But it looks like you do not give the full config variable to your instanciation. – jcisio Dec 20 '11 at 13:29
  • yeah thats the actual problem, that i have no idea about instantiation of the config variable, otherwise there is no problem in opening ckeditor through ajax, but my plugin wont show up – Firdous Dec 20 '11 at 13:31
