The CROWD people (#914) want embed videos too. Possibly we should find an end-user savvy plugin for media embedding and not expect the user to deal with the HTML source.

We should use the opportunity to update CKEditor and revise the set of plugins installed by default. Some features are rarely used (e.g. strike through, remove format, anchors, horizontal line, block quote), others are missing. Possibly we want a less obtrusive skin too.

See also #429.

Update CKEditor 4.3.2 -> 4.5.6 (#700).

New plugins:

  • Enhanced Image: allows resizable images with captions
  • Media Embed: for embedding videos and other media

Skin changed from "Moono" to "Flat".

A lot of plugins are dropped.
The toolbar is drastically reduced.
Let's see what most users really use/need.

See #700.

CKEditor: remove indent/outdent buttons (#700).

The list item indent and outdent buttons are removed from the toolbar.
Indentation still works through tab and shift-tab keys.

Luckily i found this ticket and can provide you with some evidence on what users like me do need 100%:

  • "Headings"
  • "Blockquote" resp. "Quote"

Please make sure that these options to format page content do not get lost during this optimization.

Thanks & Cheers!

Again, please make sure these two sections appear in the CKEDitor bundled in the 4.8 release! I just tested the 4.8-SNAPSHOT and these essential sections for authoring and formatting HTML pages are gone.

Replying to Malte:

  • "Headings"
  • "Blockquote" resp. "Quote"

OK, let's add these again in DM 4.8
Thank you for testing!
