How to update CKEditor in OpenCart
OpenCart using outdated CKEditor
For some reason, the current version of OpenCart (22.214.171.124) is still using an old version of CKEditor (3.0.1) in the admin interface, though the current version is up to 3.6. While the old CKEditor still works fine as a WYSIWYG, I need to give my clients an easier way to manage their content in the CMS; this means I need a paste from Word feature.
I need the Paste from Microsoft Word feature
It is infinitely easier to explain site hierarchy and per-page SEO (with respect to Headings <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, etc.) in Microsoft Word than it is to run through an HTML lesson.
A simple way to allow this is to upgrade the included CKEditor to the latest version (currently 3.6), which includes Paste from Word and a number of other features.
How to upgrade CKEditor in OpenCart
Download the latest CKEditor
Grab the latest CKEditor from their website.
Rename old ckeditor directory
Unzip and upload new version
Enjoy the latest CKEditor
It’s as simple as that. Refresh your admin page to see a ton more options in your WYSIWYG, including a Paste from Word feature.
This did dot work for me. OpenCart v 126.96.36.199
Never mind, had to clear my cash… :p Thanks for the great tip!!! 😀
Works great for me using Opencart 188.8.131.52, still it is a far cry from JCE on Joomla 😉
Thanks for the tip though 🙂
And you saved my life here! My default editor broke, and the font werent showing! I was pretty sure my client would have delayed the payment, she loves them colors lol.
Thanks. Cheers mate!
