    I used this on my last project. One thing that you didn’t mention is that CLEditor supports plugins. That means if you need to do something really customy with a wysiwyg editor, you can customize the functionality. It is a really good product.

  • Have used this on some projects before and this is one of my default wysiwyg now.
    Thumbs up :)

  • This is fantastic! Best wysiwyg Ive found in ages. Been using TinyMCE, but it weighs a ton and has loads of feature creep going on. CLEditor weighs nothing and has all the functionality I really need.


  • Good job ! i’m use last project it easy :)

    I am also using this , but i found an error when i get the value from the Editor


    When i click a link button (on Onclick event).

    I get an error
    A potentially dangerous Request.Form value was detected from the client

    It need to create ValidateRequest=”false” but, Security is the the drawback at here.

    What i do? Please, help me.

    I need to save that Text value in database.

    Send me an email on : mailbandhan@gmail.com

    Thank you in advance. Sir
