Integrating FCK editor in Code igniter.

Hi, everybody
I just want to integrate the FCK editor in my project. I have gone through some topics already regarding this in the forum. But I can't do it. Just help me giving a step by step tutorial or anything of that kind.



Show us some of your code that you've tried.

I have got your PM. So do please help me on that matter.


FCKeditor does not come packaged in a way that is directly compatible with CodeIgniter. I would suggest not trying to load it using CodeIgniter's ->load->library method. Fall back to plain old, standard PHP.

I usually place the fckeditor folder just inside the webroot.

class Welcome extends Controller {

    function Welcome()
        // include FCKeditor
        // manually assign an instance
        $this->fckeditor = new FCKeditor();
        // then work with it as you normally would
        $this->fckeditor->BasePath = '/fckeditor/';


Hi, coolfacotr
I did what you told me but the following error has been thrown

A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Warning

Message: bdir(/var/www/html/fckeditor/fckeditor.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory

Filename: admin/welcome.php

Line Number: 154

A PHP Error was encountered

Severity: Warning

Message: bdir(): Failed opening '/var/www/html/fckeditor/fckeditor.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/php/includes:/var/www/html/install/PEAR:/usr/include/php/ext/mbstring:/usr/local/lib/php')

Filename: admin/welcome.php

Line Number: 154

And also please tell me about the view page.

indus, the code example I gave you was just an example. You need to make sure things are named properly at your end. When you downloaded FCKeditor, you typically end up with a folder called "fckeditor", which I suggested to put inside the web root. Is that the case?

Let's tackle one thing at a time.

Have you tried the approach discussed in the wiki article.


instruction in wiki about fckeditor integration for CI does not work for me.. im a newbie in

esra... I am going through this and already I can tell this article is too old. It says


The following explains how to incorporate FCKeditor using Code Igniter’s 1.4x Libraries.

put into ur controller function
$this->fcked = new FCKeditor('content');
$this->fcked->ToolbarSet = 'Basic';
$this->fcked->Width = '520';
$this->fcked->BasePath = '../system/plugins/FCKeditor/';
$arr_data['fcked'] = $this->fcked;
