    Well if you are using Safari you'll have issues (not compatible with Safari.). Make sure you don't have any other extensions conflicting with it. Try disabling them all or one by one and see if it works. You also have to download the FCKeditor files from their site. In order for Vanilla to recognize an extension, it must be contained within it's own directory within the extensions directory. So, once you have downloaded and unzipped the extension files, you can then place the folder containing the default.php file into your installation of Vanilla. The path to your extension's default.php file should look like this: 1) /path/to/vanilla/extensions/FCKeditor/default.php 2) Download FCKeditor from ( 3) unzip it in /path/to/vanilla/js/FCKeditor/ the path to fckconfig.js should look like this: /path/to/vanilla/js/FCKeditor/fckconfig.js 4) Copy the included Video folder to /js/FCKeditor/editor/plugins/ that will enable the embedding of youtube and google video

    SoftWrap is simply a CSS hack to wrap lengthly code lines, no? I took a look at it and it works flawlessly (big ups to stash for making it). Simply put, any long lines within a <code> block will force it to wrap to the screen or body width (whichever condition applies (also providing the theme css is compliant)) without it falling outside the page.
