[geeklog-devel] Geeklog 2.0.0 and FCKeditor

We are starting to have problems with the FCKeditor (updated in Geeklog to
version 2.6.9) with the newer versions of Internet Explorer. IE 9 seems to
have problems with most of the popup windows for FCKeditor (ie add a url
etc..). Internet Explorer 10 has the same problems plus when you switch the
post mode to Advanced Editor in a story it will usually freeze up the text

There are ways around this but it requires you either switch the IE browser
into compatibility mode or adding to the header template:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8"{xhtml}>

Because of these issues and the fact that there are no more planed updates
for the FCKeditor we plan on most likely switching to the CKeditor for
Geeklog 2.0.1.
