For security purposes, the plugin may only be used to edit and modify the files contained in the current template directory.


This plugin works at least from the version SPIP 1.9.

To install it,
-  As for any other plugin, go to
-  Copy the /skel_editor directory into your spip’s /plugins/ directory
-  Activate it using the plugin administration menu.
-  Ensure the directory containing your templates is writable, if not change
its access attributes by making a CHMOD 777 using an FTP Client (such as Filezilla).

This plugin is currently developed on Spip-Zone. Click here for more
