Just added a new release on Orchard Gallery; with this version we introduce a CKEditor settings page in Dashboard which allows you to change the contentsCss configuration setting of Orchard. By default it's set to "Site.css" so with this update you automatically get true WYSIWYG editing on standard themes such as TheThemeMachine, which all use Site.css for their main stylesheet.

You can also add multiple stylesheets in the Contents CSS setting, just separate the names with spaces or commas. The setting assumes a base path of ~/Styles in your current theme when searching for the stylesheets. You can change it to blank to omit the setting.

This paves the way to making the CKEditor module much more configurable from the Dashboard UI in upcoming versions.

The nupkg package size is now down to less than 1mb having cleaned up some references that caused Orchard 1.0.20 binaries to get included in the package.

Finally all the ckeditor scripts have been moved into ~/Scripts/ckeditor so there's room for us to add plugins outside of that folder and make future upgrade paths a little easier when we update ckeditor. If you're updating from a previous version you'll want to delete all the old files from ~/Scripts since they're no longer used.

Hope you like the new version!
