CKEditor Plugin Released

A couple weeks ago, we released a stable version of the CKEditor plugin for Craft CMS!

This plugin can be used to create rich text fields powered by CKEditor 4 or 5.

While our Redactor plugin will continue to be maintained and supported, CKEditor is generally considered to be more stable, extensible, and accessible.

CKEditor 4 in particular has a number of notable accessibility features:

  • WCAG 2.0 AA and Section 508 compliant.
  • Excellent keyboard support.
  • High contrast support and support for screen readers such as JAWS.
  • Optional Accessibility Checker for analyzing if the content created by users is accessible.

There are also add-ons available to help improve the accessibility of content created with CKEditor 4. Here are a few examples:

CKEditor 5 provides extensive keyboard support as well, but currently lacks the same public commitment to accessibility that v4 has.

Both CKEditor and Redactor store their content as HTML, so it’s easy to convert existing Redactor fields to CKEditor: just swap out the field type.

CKEditor is a free, MIT-licensed plugin, and can be found in Plugin Store. We hope you like it!
