provides the FCKeditor WYSIWYG editor in the campaign creation page.

Installation instructions:

  1. install the plugin in phpList
  2. Download the FCKeditor and place the 'fckeditor' folder somewhere on your website (eg /fckeditor/)
  3. edit the fckeditor.html file to point to the phpList FCKeditor config:
    • replace the line LoadScript( '../fckconfig.js' ) ; with
    • LoadScript( '/lists/admin/?pi=fckphplist&page=config&action=js4' ) ;
    • (adapt /lists/admin/ to your specific setup if required)
  4. Go to phpList → Config → Settings and change the setting for fckeditor_path to point to your FCKeditor location.

More explaination:

If your plugin directory is in the normal location /lists/admin/plugins/ then you can put the FCKeditor in the fckeditor plugin location. This is outlined in the instructions of the plugin.

However, when you place your plugin folder under the webroot, which is better for security, then this is not possible, as the FCKeditor files need to be accessible to the browser. In that case, you can put the editor somewhere on your site, and tell phpList about it in the fckeditor_path. This path is relative to the webroot of your site.


Follow the instructions on the github pages to enable the image upload functionality.
