Background image plugin for CKEditor

People enjoy colorful pages, background graphics and everything that can make their pages show their good taste, that's why some of them haver requested such feature for FCKeditor and CKEditor.

It's not clear if it might get directly supported in the core but here's a plugin for CKEditor to include a "Background image" field (with a button to launch the server browser) in the Table and Cell properties dialogs.

You can download the plugin here, the zip includes an install doc explaining how to use it, just extract the zip under the plugins folder for CKEditor and add "backgrounds" to the list of extra plugins.

Thank you to Igenti, Inc. for sponsoring the development of the plugin.

Thanks so much for this! Exactly what I needed. One thing I noticed, is that it creates the field and the browse button, but no text (i.e. "Background Image"

Is it possible to fix that?

It's been a very long time since I tried this and maybe some upgrade to the dialog table dialog has broken something.

I'll try to take a look when I have some free time (but I must warn you that it could be quite a while)

You didn't add any further info, but I guess that you were trying to use the plugin in CKEditor 4 and this is one of the plugins that due to the lack of interest still wasn't updated.

I've published now a version that should work with v4: http://ckeditor.com/addon/backgrounds
