I am writing to all those who are frustrated just as me with the latest CkEditor version where it doesn't work as expected as the old versions, especially using Wysiwyg.
- One of the most common problem the developers are facing after installing the Wysiwyg module and uploading the Ckeditor Library into the sites/all/libraries directory is, the Wysiwyg doesn't detect the version of the uploaded CkEditor when you navigate to /admin/config/content/wysiwyg (I am talking about the version 4.0 and greater)
"The version of CKEditor could not be detected."
one of the solution (which is a bad practice) is to edit the ckeditor.js file inside the
directory sites/all/libraries/ckeditor, you will have to find the version written in the file
probably in the first line i.e (version:"4.1") and replace it with a lesser than the 4.0th
version i.e (version:"3.6")
- Though the ^^^ above solves the Ckeditor detecting issue, this doesn’t work well with media embedding.
My simple solution for this is completely remove the latest version of your ckeditor andre-upload the old but steady/reliable version of it (I prefer version 22.214.171.124)
