Rich Text Editor¶
ExpressionEngine’s built-in Rich Text Editor (RTE) is usually used inside the Control Panel. This module allows you to also use the RTE outside of the Control Panel, in your site’s front-end templates.
The versions of jQuery and jQuery UI that ship with ExpressionEngine are loaded by default since the RTE depends on them. If you are already loading these libraries separately, you may set this to “no”.
The jQuery selector that determines which element(s) the RTE will be applied to. Any valid jQuery selector is acceptable. If this parameter is not specified, it will default to “.rte”, selecting all elements having “rte” as a class.
The id of the toolset to use. If this parameter is not specified, the RTE will attempt to load the Toolset preference of the currently logged-in user as chosen in RTE tool set. If the user has not chosen a Toolset or is not logged in, the site’s Default Tool Sets will be used.
