CKEditor is a powerful editing tool that makes content creation in Drupal far more flexible and enjoyable. CKEditor also integrates with modules to improve Drupal's image, file and link handling.
One thing that many people notice when they use Drupal for the first time is that there's no WYSIWYG editor.
This class is going to introduce you to CKEditor, which is the best WYSIWYG add-on for both Drupal 7. CKEditor will also become part of the Drupal 8 core.
CKEditor Class Overview
I got back into Drupal about a year before Drupal 7 was released, so I built a couple of sites in Drupal 6. Then in January I completely switched over to D7 when it was released. Because I decided to make the switch right away, I was running into a lot of bugs/issues that hadn't been resolved yet. So, I started to make videos helping other people with the problems I found.
With the videos I made, I realized that I had shown some solutions, but people still had a lot of questions about edge cases. That was when I saw the light, and had the idea to put together series of short videos covering different topics. This format allowed me go in-depth with each module. I'm glad to be sharing these videos on OSTraining!
