Site Changes – New Plugin CKEditor Added

Within the past few weeks I have migrated our on-line web shop to Drupal 6.x with the CKEditor module added for page editing. I have decided I like the ease of use brought by CKEditor for creating and editing web site pages under CMS. CKEditor is a powerful and feature-rich CMS editor that works very much like a word processor, such as Writer, AbiWord or KOffice Kword. As such it contributes to allowing a writer to concentrate on his writing, rather than HTML, PHP and other underpinnings of a web site. In any media content should be King. The medium to create and display that content should be unobtrusive and easy to use.

What does this mean to you, our readers? You get a small subset of the CKEditor features to create your comments. These features will allow reader comments to easily include bold, italics, bulleted or numbered lists and links to off-site URLs and images. Of course the other HTML code recognized by the standard WordPress comment editor still works too. If any of you want to see a specific CKEditor feature enabled on the comment editor, let us know. We will consider it, and may just add it for you.
