Installing and Using CKEditor in Drupal 7

Drupal Version

There are two parts to installing CKEditor for Drupal 7 (Drupal 8 comes with it already installed):

  1. The CKEditor Drupal module, which is placed in the sites/all/modules folder.
  2. The CKEditor library, which is placed INSIDE the sites/all/libraries folder.

After installing the module and library, enable the module and it should take effect immediately.

If you want to customize your CKEditor settings, look in the administrative configuration area under Content Authoring -> CKEditor.
