CKEditor for WordPress
[resolved] [Plugin: CKEditor For WordPress] Disable CKEditor as Comment Editor (4 posts)

    I run a WordPress WPMU network and would like to disable CKEditor as the default comment editor for all my sub-blog.

    I am aware you can disable CKEditor as the comment editor by going to to CKEditor --> Basic Settings and unchecking "Use CKEditor as comment editor" - I'm looking for a way to change that option to unchecked by default so I don't have to log into 300 blogs and manually uncheck it each time and for every new blog that's created.

    try change 'comment_editor' => 't' to 'comment_editor' => 'f' in ckeditor_class.php (line 36) file.
    You can also do this by change in database (remember to make a backup).
    Find ckeditor_wordpress option in wp_options table. There should be an entry like comment_editor - change it from 1 to 0.

    Great, thanks, I'll make that change in ckeditor_class.php

    My only concern is every time a new version of ckeditor comes out and I upgrade, it'll overwrite that file and undo my change.

    Yes , but most users want to use CKEditor in comments , so change this in plugin is not an option.
    You can always change this by database. Creating bash script add it to Cron is also good option, but CKEditor plugin is not updated everyday ;)
