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") ; ?>
 
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>
 
<body>
<form>
<?php
$oFCKeditor = new FCKeditor('asdf') ;
$oFCKeditor->ToolbarSet = 'CustomToolbar';
$oFCKeditor->BasePath = 'fckeditor/' ;
$oFCKeditor->Value = 'test';
$oFCKeditor->Width = '350px';
$oFCKeditor->Create() ;
?>
</form>
</body>
</html>

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.

	['Undo','Redo','-','Find','Replace','-','SelectAll','RemoveFormat'],

] ;
 
FCKConfig.ToolbarSets["CustomToolbar"] = [
