Description: LASSO 8 CONNECTOR FOR FCKEDITOR 2.0
Author: Jason Huck/Core Five Creative
Last Modified: Jun 14, 2005
This package contains FCKEditor 2.0 , a browser-based WYSIWYG HTML editor maintained by Frederico Knabben, and made available under the LGPL license .
One thing that sets FCKEditor apart from competing tools is an API that makes it possible for different middleware packages to provide the server-side functions (namely, browsing for files on the server and handling uploads). In fact, it ships with connectors for ASP, ASP.NET, PHP, Perl, ColdFusion, and Java. This copy has been extended to allow Lasso to also provide that server-side functionality.
FCKeditor is compatible with most internet browsers which include: IE 5.5+, Firefox 1.0+, Mozilla 1.3+ and Netscape 7+. The editor runs over Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems. Note: Internet Explorer compatibility is available on Windows operating systems only.
The Lasso Connector is written for Lasso Professional 8 and higher.
- Unzip the package and place it within your web root.
- Edit the following file, changing the value of 'UserFilesPath' to the path of a directory within your web root where users may browse and upload files, and adding the username and password of a Lasso user with upload permissions, and full file permissions for the directory you specified:
- Open this page in a browser and select Lasso from the pulldown menu to view the integration samples:
To create an instance of the editor in a Lasso page, insert the following code:
var('basepath') = '';
var('myeditor') = fck_editor(
-initialvalue='This is some sample text.'
For more details on the configuration options available, review the sample files and consult the FCKEditor documentation .
