If end users of a website are going to be fully satisfied with their Content Management System when they add articles or pages, they need a well implemented WYSIWYG editor. I am delighted to say that we now have this for Backdrop.
Thanks to the provision of a new contributed module by JF (@gifad) named 'CKEditor Addon' we can now enjoy in Backdrop the full capabilities of the excellent CKEditor. This add-on builds on what has been provided in Backdrop's core for several months. Hopefully we will have these full capabilities as an integral part of core in release 1.4 scheduled for May 15th but in the meantime I shall be using this add-on for my Backdrop sites for the benefit and delight of myself and my end users. Thank you @gifad!
