CKeditor on DNN 8: Custom Editor options will not load, throws error

Aug 4, 2016 at 2:08 PM
I am on DNN 08.00.03 (5). The CKeditor version says 3.6.1 (revision 7072). I am on PowerDNN using Control Suite for upgrade package.

When I try and load 'Custom Editor Options' the window that pops up just loads the home page of the site and I get this error. Thanks for any help, Will, Maine USA.

Please upgrade to the latest version. The version you are using is really old. This will also resolve the issue you have.
