CKEditor with Disabled Apostrophe Conversion

in jQuery/Javascript/Tutorials & Samples


I’m an instance of CKEditor that will not replace the character into ' and the character into " when you click on the “Source” button

CKEditor is by far, the best online text editor. I use it in all my projects that require a textbox with additional functionalities. I also use the CKEditor demo page to quickly convert rich text to HTML. However, the version on the demo page converts apostrophes and double-quotes into their ASCII representation, which is frustrating. Below is a version of CKEditor that will not automatically convert apostrophes and double-quotes.

For anybody wondering, I simply added the following line in the config.js file:

	// make sure that the ' and "" characters are left intact
	config.entities = false;
	config.entities_additional = '';
