WYSIWYG integration module for Kohana PHP framework.

This module allows you to:

  • Use a visual editor to work with HTML hypertext
  • Upload and manage uploaded files on your server (such as images, videos, etc.) using filebrowser
  • Edit images: resize and crop using specialized tools


Please, note - for this module the module Image is required!

Enable WYSIWYG module

Edit your bootstrap file APPPATH/bootstrap.php and enable WYSIWYG module:

  // Some modules
  'image'   => MODPATH.'image',  // this module is required for our WYSIWYG module
  'wysiwyg' => MODPATH.'wysiwyg',
  // Some other modules

Edit config file:

Copy config file MODPATH/wysiwyg/config/filebrowser.php to APPPATH/config/filebrowser.php and open it:

    'public_directory'  => 'media',
    'uploads_directory' => 'uploads',

public_directory - directory, which contains all the static files, in this case it DOCROOT/media.

uploads_directory - directory, which contains all uploaded files. This directory is always in public directory. In this case it DOCROOT/media/uploads. This directory must be writable.

Create these two directories.

Extend filebrowser controller

It assumes that you are familiar with template driven site conception.

Create a new controller file in APPPATH/classes/Controller/Filebrowser.php:

<?php defined('SYSPATH') or die('No direct access allowed.');

class Controller_Filebrowser extends Kohana_Controller_Filebrowser {

     * Controls access for the whole controller, if not set to FALSE we will only allow user roles specified
     * Can be set to a string or an array, for example array('login', 'admin') or 'login'
    public $auth_required = array('admin');

    public function before()
        if ( ! Auth::instance()->logged_in($this->auth_required))
            throw new HTTP_Exception_403;



Insert scripts into the page

Keep in mind that the Jquery is mandatory and must be inserted into the page in front of these instructions:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/media/wysiwyg/ckeditor/ckeditor.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/media/wysiwyg/ckeditor/jquery.ckeditor.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="/media/wysiwyg/environment/default.js"></script>

All as though, is ready

Now you can assign a class to rte one or more text fields, and they are converted into a visual editor automatically:

<textarea class="rte" name="somename"></textarea>
