    Thank you for checking latest DEV.
    Please check in Firebug (Firefox add-on) console if you have any errors .
    Please also check in firebug’s net tab if all request are correct.

    I had the same issue, afer debugging with firebug and crossing it with Apache logs, I found out that the plaugin was requesting the JS files using the HTTPS protocol prefix. After a short investiagtion, I found that in file ckeditor_class.php in line 30 there was:

    if($_SERVER['HTTPS']) {
      $siteurl = str_replace('http:', 'https:', $siteurl);
      $this->plugin_path = str_replace('http:', 'https:', $this->plugin_path);

    Apparentaly my server configuaration was producong


    The following fix should be applied to the plugin code, using a core wordpress function to check the required protocol:

    if(is_ssl()) {
      $siteurl = str_replace('http:', 'https:', $siteurl);
      $this->plugin_path = str_replace('http:', 'https:', $this->plugin_path);

    @alex Sherman thx for your help, i commit changes to SVN.


    In my opinion this plugin won’t load on every webserver running IIS with PHP using ISAPI. The value of $_SERVER[‘HTTPS’] would be ‘off’ and in this case not empty as expected…

    When will be the next plugin update?

    Thanks for the great work!

    Actually I had this on Apache on Ubuntu system (installed as Zend Server Ce PHP 5.3)

    @bannerweb GmbH,
    this bug is fixed in latest DEV version. Please try use it.
    Dev version has also CKEditor 3.6.3 (latest one).

    I’m still having some issues with the a blank editor after enabling CKEditor…

    The only error I’m seeing when I attempt to make an edit, is as follows.

    Also I am on the latest DEV version.

    Issue solved! I had to disable the .htaccess file by renaming it .htaccess.bk everything is working now 🙂 Any negatives to disabling that file??

    Plugin Author michal


    you mean .htaccess file in CKEditor plugin directory ?
    This kind of issues are related with server configuration.
    If everything works fine after your change, it should be ok.

    Yes I completely disabled the .htaccess file under plugins/ckeditor-for-wordpress/ckeditor After doing this CKEditor loads as it should, no more white/blank editor! 🙂 🙂

    I’m not sure where I would have configured the server wrong, started up a fresh VM for this guy. Fresh CentOS 6.2, with latest Apache, mySQL, and dependencies.

    Thanks for the feedback.


    I had the same problem (blank white editor screen).

    Because the plugin was working up to some point I later discovered that the “Google XML Sitemaps v3 for qTranslate” ( plugin was causing this plugin to stop working.

    Hopefully this will help someone…

    can you write us if you have any errors in Firebug or similar tool when you try to use CKEditor for WordPress and “Google XML Sitemaps v3 for qTranslate” plugins
