  by Eugene B over 8 years ago

- Epic!!! much user friendly
- direct table copy paste from MS Excel
- direct content copy form website (with pictures/links etc)
- should be default redmine editor

- all previous text is damaged. But migrating worth it really!!!

Really great plugin.

  by Gerardo Herzig almost 9 years ago

Good for a "fresh, clean" redmine. I mean, without any issues loaded.
All pre-existing wikis, notes, issues and any other text got broken and become unreadable.

  by Ely Colares almost 9 years ago

It says that the version 1.0.20 (07/03/2015) is compatible with Redmine 2.6.x, however was unable instalar..Aparece a message that is only copatível with Redmine 3.0. :(

  by Mike O'Neill almost 9 years ago

Worked great in previous versions. Now I have to wait for 3.1.x support.

  by James H almost 9 years ago

Great plugin. However, it changes literally ALL text boxes within Redmine from RedCloth to CKEditor.
All existing text and formatted text (including calls to pictures, links, etc.) becomes essentially invalid and broken with implementation of this.

  by Bryant Yang about 9 years ago

it's a good plugin. but the most troublesome thing is: All of the old content with picture or special format will be shown as raw textile code.

  by Hassan Assalih about 9 years ago

had some trouble to install ... but it worth the effort, this should be the default editor in Redmine, it is really nice and the the best bit is that it enable you to copy/past html.

  by Yan Charnyy about 9 years ago

dont forget to check plugin settings) (Administration > Plugins > Configure) - Install codesnippet

  by Thierry Brochu about 9 years ago

Very useful! Best wiki editor for my non technical people with WYSIWYG!

  by Christian Dähn over 9 years ago

Sadly this plugin erases+overwrites config.js and there is no documented way how to use own settings/configs - the given ckeditor.yml doesn't work.

  by Nicolas Rodriguez over 9 years ago

  by trianglesis trianglesis over 9 years ago

Partially working with new 2.6.2 Redmine update.
Some text areas has CKeditor but some are not.

  by ivy micheli over 9 years ago

It's a very nice plugin, but I'm still having problems with break lines on received emails (1.0.17)

[Plugin "per_project_formatting" is very useful add-on for it.]

  by K W over 9 years ago

Excellent plugin. Was the deciding factor on running with Redmine.

  by Raúl Gómez about 10 years ago

  by Igor Panassiouk about 10 years ago

Works fine,
plugin "per_project_formatting" is very useful add-on for it.
Migration is working well.

It would be great to add possibility to convert from CKE-formatted text (html) to Redmine-native textile.

  by Robert Schneider about 10 years ago

Just installed it. Works great so far!
