CKEditor Widget

Beta License: AGPL-3 OCA/web Translate me on Weblate Try me on Runboat

This module adds a new widget ckeditor to edit HTML fields using CKEditor.

Table of contents


By default, this module will replace the original html wysiwyg field with CKEditor. The original html widget will be renamed as html_odoo.

If you only want to use ckeditor on specific views, you can disable the html widget override by archiving the web_widget_ckeditor.assets_backend_field_html_override view.

When the global html widget replacement is disabled, ckeditor has to be explicitly set on the desired ir.ui.view:

<field name="description_html" widget="ckeditor" />

The CKEditor toolbar can be customized with an ir.config_parameter. To do so, please create a parameter named web_widget_ckeditor.toolbar, and set the desired toolbar items using either ,, space or newline as separators.

| bold italic underline removeFormat
| fontSize fontColor fontBackgroundColor
| bulletedList numberedList alignment
| outdent indent pagebreak
| link imageUpload blockQuote insertTable
| undo redo

There’s more information about available toolbar items in the official CKEditor documentation page

Known issues / Roadmap

  • Allow to configure toolbar using widget’s options.
    options="{'bulletedList': false, 'pageBreak': true}"

1. you delect you the check box

2. for the picuture insert ,the old has a function of auto size convert and can set the percentage of picutre shows.  but in the CKEditor, even though you change the size of picuture under edite mode, i still show the original size once save.    Even though you use the center alignment in the eidite mode, it is still left align after save.
