Add-On Type(s)



Redactor, the wonderfully simple and lightweight WYSIWYG editor is now lives as an EE Fieldtype, under the secret identity known as "Redactee". Use it as a Channel Field, Matrix Field, a Low Variable Field... even in Safecracker. Simple to use, feature-rich, and smooth as butter. Supports image browsing and image / file uploads, Assets subfolders and even Amazon S3 uploads.

Redactor is the most fantastic yet beautiful and easy-to-use WYSIWYG editor on jQuery. It is lightning fast, small, scalable, and powerful.


  • Fast – leaves TinyMCE and CKEditor in the dust
  • Drag & Drop Upload – it couldn’t be easier
  • Structure & Pages Support – easily link to other pages on your site
  • Assets Subfolder Support – browse and upload to Asset folders
  • Air Mode – floating toolbar appears when selecting content
  • High Performance – short excerpt or long pages, we can take it
  • Paste Cleanup – good markup no-matter the source
  • Visual Formatting – so you can ‘see’ the layout
  • Amazon S3 Support – upload files to the cloud

Look no further. Redactee is the editor you’ve been looking for.

Redactee is a lightwight wrapper module for Redactor.js. Features and or bugs in Redactor.js will also affect Redactee.

Finaly a nice looking editor. Works good and make dynamic links to internal pages. Nice since you dont have to go back and change links manualy. Please make it a long lasting add-on :)

Highlights the best parts of Redactor.js! Easy to use, simple to configure, very flexible. Just install, setup WYSIWYG toolbar options, and then add to a channel. It’s for power-users to configure, so that novice users can just edit/upload what they need without alot of training.

Seems to have abandoned this add-on. No response to support requests.

Works well - the only thing that’s missing (from Redactor.js as well I think) is Paste from Word / Paste as Plain Text .. I had a client that would constantly copy text from Word documents and paste it into Redactee .. in the end I had to switch to one of the CKEditor alternatives w/PasteAsPlainText
