fckeditor is not loading textarea

I am integrating an FCKEditor in my page in PHP. The editor is not loading the textarea (the actual editor window). The toolbar loads, but when i go to click on the textarea, nothing happens, it does not gain focus.
$oFCKeditor = new FCKeditor('newcontent') ;
$oFCKeditor->ToolbarSet = 'CustomToolbar';
$oFCKeditor->BasePath = 'fckeditor/' ;
$oFCKeditor->Value = 'Edit this.';
$oFCKeditor->Width = '90%';
$oFCKeditor->Create() ;

This is a test page (the actual page is a nested include file, so is too long). The test page has the same problem though.
<? include_once("fckeditor/fckeditor.php") ; ?>

try adding forward slash here
$oFCKeditor->BasePath = 'fckeditor/' ;

to be like
$oFCKeditor->BasePath = '/fckeditor/' ;

also try commenting this line
$oFCKeditor->ToolbarSet = 'CustomToolbar';

see if it works now.

Yes, that solves the textarea issue. However, when I try to uncomment the custom toolbar line, it says my toolbar doesnt exist even though i have it defined in fckeditor/fckconfig.js.

where is the javascript file located?

try putting the base path before the toolbarset like this

$oFCKeditor->BasePath = '/fckeditor/' ;
$oFCKeditor->ToolbarSet = 'CustomToolbar';

test.php is in root directory. config js file is at fckeditor/fckeditor.js.  putting the base path set line before the toolbar set line doesnt do anything. also fyi, i tried deleting the whole folder and "reinstalling" but to no avail.

khaledfCommented:

$oFCKeditor->ToolbarSet = 'Basic';

jonarc124Author Commented:
yes, default and basic work. my code found in the config js file is below.
FCKConfig.ToolbarSets["Default"] = [
	['Source','DocProps','-','Save','NewPage','Preview','-','Templates'],
	['Cut','Copy','Paste','PasteText','PasteWord','-','Print','SpellCheck'],
	['Undo','Redo','-','Find','Replace','-','SelectAll','RemoveFormat'],
	['Form','Checkbox','Radio','TextField','Textarea','Select','Button','ImageButton','HiddenField'],
	'/',
	['Bold','Italic','Underline','StrikeThrough','-','Subscript','Superscript'],
	['OrderedList','UnorderedList','-','Outdent','Indent','Blockquote','CreateDiv'],
	['JustifyLeft','JustifyCenter','JustifyRight','JustifyFull'],

	['Image','Flash','Table','Rule','Smiley','SpecialChar','PageBreak'],
	'/',
	['Style','FontFormat','FontName','FontSize'],
	['TextColor','BGColor'],
	['FitWindow','ShowBlocks','-','About']		// No comma for the last row.
] ;
 
FCKConfig.ToolbarSets["Basic"] = [
	['Bold','Italic','-','OrderedList','UnorderedList','-','Link','Unlink','-','About','Cut','Copy']
] ;
 
FCKConfig.ToolbarSets["CustomToolbar"] = [
	['Source','Cut','Copy','Paste','SpellCheck','Undo','Redo','SelectAll'],
