Block C - Slot 8

Slot 8: 9:00 pm America/Los_Angeles - April 4, 2024

Backdrop 1.27.0 released January 15, 2024, and included a new major version of the popular rich text editor CKEditor. The jump from CKEditor 4 to 5 is a big one, with an entirely new plugin architecture.

This session we'll be reviewing the upgrade process for sites using CKEditor 4, starting with sites that are simply upgrading to the latest version. Then we'll go over common issues and differences from CKEditor 4, such as loading CSS into the editor.

Finally, we'll take a look at upgrading modules and plugins to the new API.

Intended Audience: 
  • Intermediate
  • Experienced
  • Website Architects (no code)
  • Developers (yes code)
  • Back-End Developers (modules + more)
