I am currently looking into running CKEditor in a modal dialog using the Drupal Modal API.
At this moment it is working OK, but there is a problem with the link and image modals which can be triggered from the CKEditor interface. Those also use the Modal API and when triggering one of these functions, the modal containing CKEditor is fully closed.
Is there any way to open de link/image modal without closing the CKEditor modal? It seems like it is possible to define the HTML element to which the modal should append when triggering. When overriding this setting ('appendTo' => '#foo'), even the link/image modals are appended to #foo (instead of the default '#drupal-modal').
Any ideas on how to get this to work?
Thanks for your support.
