 This module allows Drupal to replace textarea fields with the
 This HTML text editor brings many of the powerful 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.
 Required components
 To use FCKeditor in Drupal, you will need to download the FCKeditor
 Make sure you download FCKeditor, not CKEditor. If you would like to
 use CKEditor with Drupal, please visit
 More information and licence
 FCKeditor - The text editor for internet
 Copyright (C) 2003-2008 Frederico Caldeira Knabben
 Licensed under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License:
 For further information visit:
   - Drupal 6.x
   - PHP 4.3.0 or greater
   - FCKeditor 2.5.x or greater
     Download FCKeditor (not CKeditor) from http://ckeditor.com/download
 Note: this instruction assumes that you install FCKeditor in
       sites/all/modules directory (recommended).
    1. Unzip the files in the sites/all/modules directory. It should now
       contain a fckeditor directory.
    2. Download FCKeditor from http://ckeditor.com/download. Unzip the
       contents of the fckeditor directory in the
       sites/all/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor directory.
    3. Enable the module as usual from Drupal's admin pages.
    4. Grant permissions for use of FCKeditor in
       "Administer > User Management > Permissions"
       Note: to enable the file browser, read also the
             "How to enable the file browser" section.
    5. Under "Administer > Site configuration > FCKeditor", adjust
       the fckeditor profiles. In each profile you can choose which textareas
       will be replaced by FCKeditor, select default toolbar and configure
       some more advanced settings.
    6. For the Rich Text Editing to work you also need to configure your filters
       for the users that may access Rich Text Editing.
       Either grant those users Full HTML access or use the following tags:
       <a> <p> <span> <div> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <img> <map> <area> <hr>
       <br> <br /> <ul> <ol> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd> <table> <tr> <td> <em> <b> <u> <i> <strong>
       <font> <del> <ins> <sub> <sup> <quote> <blockquote> <pre> <address> <code>
       <cite> <embed> <object> <param> <strike> <caption>.
    7. To have a better control over line breaks, you may disable Line break converter
       in the chosen filter (recommended).
    8. Modify the fckeditor.config.js file to custom your needs (optional).
       You may copy the needed configuration lines from the default FCKeditor
       configuration settings (sites/all/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor/fckconfig.js),
       the lines in fckeditor.config.js will override most settings.
       In fckeditor.config.js you may define your own toolbars with selected buttons.
       WARNING: clear browser's cache after you modify any of the javascript files.
       If you don't do this, you may notice that browser is ignoring all your changes.
 Installation troubleshooting
 If your FCKeditor does not show you must check if all files are
 extracted correctly.
 The directory sites/all/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor/ should have the
 following files:
    - fckeditor.js
    - fckconfig.js
    - fckstyles.xml
    - fcktemplates.xml
    - fckeditor.php
    - fckeditor_php4.php
    - fckeditor_php5.php
 and a directory named editor.
 The correct directory structure is as follows:
 If you're still having problems, scroll down to the "Help & Contribution" section.
 Plugins: Teaser break and Pagebreak
 By default, FCKeditor module comes with two plugins that can handle
 teaser break (<!--break-->) and pagebreak (<!--pagebreak-->).
 You can enable any (or even both) of them.
    1. Open sites/all/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor.config.js and
       uncomment these three lines:
             FCKConfig.PluginsPath = '../../plugins/' ;
             FCKConfig.Plugins.Add( 'drupalbreak' ) ;
             FCKConfig.Plugins.Add( 'drupalpagebreak' ) ;
    2. The second step is to add buttons to the toolbar (in the same file).
       The button names are: DrupalBreak, DrupalPageBreak.
       For example if you have a toolbar with an array of buttons defined
       as follows:
       simply add those two buttons at the end of array:
       ['Image','Flash','Table','Rule','SpecialChar', 'DrupalBreak', 'DrupalPageBreak']
       (remember about single quotes).
     3. Note that the <!--pagebreak--> tag is not supported by default in Drupal.
        You should install the Paging module: http://drupal.org/project/paging
        to enable the <!--pagebreak--> tag support. Please refer to the Paging
        module documentation for detailed installation instructions.
 Uploading images and files
 There are three ways of uploading files: By using the built-in file browser, 
 by using modules like IMCE, Image Browser or by using the core upload module.
 How to enable the built-in file browser
 The editor gives the end user the flexibility to create a custom file browser
 that can be integrated on it.
 The included file browser allows users to view the content of a specific
 directory on the server and add new content to that directory
 (create folders and upload files).
    1. To enable file browsing you need to edit the connector configuration file
       in your fckeditor module directory, the file should be in:
       In this file(s) you will need to enable the file browser by adding one
       line that includes file with the special authentication function for
       Drupal (filemanager.config.php). Add this code:
           require_once '../../../../../filemanager.config.php';
       straight below this line:
           $Config['UserFilesAbsolutePath'] = '' ;
       The config.php file also holds some other important settings, please
       take a look at it and adjust it to your needs (optional).
    2. Locate file named settings.php inside your drupal directory
       (usually sites/default/settings.php) and set $cookie_domain variable to the
       appropriate domain (remember to uncomment that line). If you not do this,
       FCKeditor will claim that file browser is disabled
    3. Enabling file uploads is a security risk. That's why you have to grant a
       separate permission to enable the file browser to certain groups.
       In "Administer > User Management > Permissions" assign the
       "allow fckeditor file uploads" permissions.
    4. Lastly, adjust the File browser settings for each profile: set "File browser type" to "Built-in filebrowser".
 Modules: Image Assist
 Image Assist version 1 and 2 can be integrated with FCKeditor. It is no longer necessary to copy a Javascript file.
 Modules: Link to content (EXPERIMENTAL)
 Link to content module can be integrated with FCKeditor.
 ATTENTION: this module is not yet compatible with FCKeditor :(
 The unofficial version of Link to content module compatible with FCKeditor can be downloaded here:
 Follow the instruction from INSTALL.txt attached to the linktocontent module.
 Then do the following steps to add Linktocontent button to the FCKeditor toolbar:
 By default, FCKeditor module comes with two plugins that allows you to use linktocontent and linktonode features.
 You can enable any (or even both) of them.
    1. Open /drupal/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor.config.js and uncomment these three lines:
             FCKConfig.PluginsPath = '../../plugins/' ;
             FCKConfig.Plugins.Add( 'linktonode', 'en,pl' ) ;
             FCKConfig.Plugins.Add( 'linktomenu', 'en,pl' ) ;
    2. The second step is to add buttons to the toolbar (in the same file).
       The button names are: LinkToNode, LinkToMenu. 
       For example if you have a toolbar with an array of buttons defined as follows:
       simply add those two buttons at the end of array (or somewhere in the middle):
       (remember about single quotes).
 Upgrading instructions
 This instruction assumes that you are upgrading FCKeditor module [M] and FCKeditor (the editor)[E] at the same time. 
 Instructions specific for module upgrades are tagged with [M], steps that must be taken when upgrading FCKeditor (the editor) are marked with [E].
    1. [M] Download the latest version of FCKeditor module from http://drupal.org/project/fckeditor (it is advised to read release notes before going further).
    2. [E] Download the latest version of FCKeditor from http://ckeditor.com/download (it is advised to read "what's new" before going further: http://ckeditor.com/whatsnew).
    3. [M] Back up your database.
    4. [EM] Place the site in "Off-line" mode, to let the database updates run without interruption and avoid displaying errors to end users of the site.
    5. [E] If you have used the FCKeditor built-in file browser, make a backup of sites/all/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor/editor/filemanager/connectors/php/config.php
    6. [E] If you have configured spellchecker, make a backup of sites/all/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor/editor/dialog/fck_spellerpages/spellerpages/server-scripts/spellchecker.php
    7. [E] If you have made any changes inside of sites/all/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor.config.js (or sites/all/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor/fckconfig.js), write down your changes and add them again after uploading new files (e.g. own toolbar definitions, re-enable a plugin etc.). Try to not make any changes to fckconfig.js and add everything to fckeditor.config.js.
    8. Delete old files:
       [EM]* Simply remove modules/fckeditor directory if upgrading both, the editor and the module. 
       [M] If you are upgrading module only, remember to leave the modules/fckeditor/fckeditor directory. 
       [E] When upgrading the editor, remove contents of modules/fckeditor/fckeditor directory only.
       WARNING: if you don't remove old files and just rename fckeditor directory instead e.g. to fckeditor_old, Drupal may use module from the fckeditor_old directory.
    9. [M] Upload FCKeditor module (extracted files and folders) to sites/all/modules directory.
    10. [E] Upload FCKeditor (extracted files and folders from the fckeditor directory) to sites/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor (i.e. where COPY HERE.txt file exists)
    11. [E] Replace the new config.php (see step 5) file with the old one (or RECOMMENDED way: perform again step with adding require_once '../../../../../filemanager.config.php'; to config.php)
    12. [E] Replace the new spellchecker.php with the old one (see step 6) (or RECOMMENDED way: configure new spellchecker.php following the settings from the old file).
    13. [E] Apply your modifications to default configuration in fckeditor.config.js file (see step 7).
    14. [M] If you're using Image Assist module, copy the new img_assist_fckeditor.js to modules/img_assist folder.
    15. [M] Run update.php.
    16. [EM] Put the site back online.
