File Upload through Dialogs and Drag&Drop Documentation

By default CKEditor does not include a file manager, but it can be easily integrated with an external tool thanks to the File Browser plugin that is available in all official CKEditor distributions.

Once properly set up through the config.filebrowserBrowseUrl and config.filebrowserUploadUrl configuration settings, all file manager features will automatically become available. This includes the Upload tab in the Link or Image Properties dialog windows as well as the Browse Server button.

Note: The examples on this page integrate CKEditor with CKFinder, but you are free to implement your own solution thanks to the editor File Browser API or choose another existing product. Additionally, file manager integration can be customized thanks to numerous editor configuration features that make it possible to, for example, setup the integration for selected dialog windows or customize the file browser window size.
