    im using FCKEditor 2.6.3 version for ASP.NET. I want to know is there any built-in way to put placeholders through fckEditor


    Dear <%UserName&>

    I would like to inform you ......


    so at runtime, i can replace the placeholder with the actual name of the user and send an email..

    Any suggestions appreciated

    I think it is not possible.

    You should be able to do this but it would be more of a fckEditor / javascript issue than an asp.net one.

    There are quite a few tutorials out there for implementing custom buttons. You could create a button to insert the placeholder...

    Good tutorial.

    I have a backburner feature that I would like to implement one day that is something like this but I dont think its the exact solution to my problem.

    I want to be able to implement a cms for a product page which allows prices and other database variables to be inserted. I could do it with this tutorial but from the looks of it the text is inserted and then the user can change it, such as changing March to Marbrokench? Is this how it works?

    I would prefer to be able to drop in something that was like an image or an object that cannot be broken by a mistyped character.

    Oh well, glad you solved your problem!
