HandsOn Setting Up FCKeditor

Before we dig into the editor's setup, we will need all of the modules and requirements. You should download the latest versions of the FCKeditor and IMCE modules as you did earlier for the Administration Menu module in the "Hands-On: Working with Modules" section. The project page for FCKeditor is located at http://drupal.org/project/ fckeditor and the project page for IMCE is at http://drupal.org/project/imce. Once you have the modules in place, we still aren't quite done yet, because the FCKeditor module doesn't actually contain the FCKeditor software itself. This is because the FCKeditor software comes from its own, external open source website and community that develops and maintains it, outside of the Drupal community.

1. Go to http://www.fckeditor.net and click the Download link in the upper-right navigation area on the site, as shown in Figure 2-58.

2. The first version listed in the Download section will be the latest version of FCKeditor. In Figure 2-59, this is FCKeditor 2.6.3. Under the version listed are two links that you can use to download. The only difference is in the type of compression used, zip or tar, so you can use either. Click the link listed for the version you want. In Figure 2-59, this would be FCKeditor_2.63.zip or FCKeditor_2.63.tar.gz.

3. Once you have the file downloaded, go ahead and extract it. You should be presented with a folder named fckeditor.

4. You need to copy this folder into your FCKeditor module folder. There is already an empty folder with this name in there, so you want to replace that folder with the new one you just extracted. All of the similar names can get quite confusing, so make sure that your finished result has the following directory structure leading down to the FCKeditor software's main PHP file (also shown in Figure 2-60): sites/ all/modules/fckeditor/fckeditor/fckeditor.php.
