Integrating FCKEditor to save current content with AJAX using PHP

This is a short post which basically looks at an issue I had whilst developing my own content management system in PHP. The system uses FCKEditor as a basis in which for users to edit content with. The problem stemmed from me wanting an auto save feature that saved what was currently within the FCKEditor window. As I wanted the auto save to work on a timed basis as well it working without reloading the page i used AJAX ito help with this. The key line for getting the current content from the FCKEditor into a variable that could then be stored within a database was:-

var VariableName = escape(FCKeditorAPI.GetInstance('FCKEditorFieldName').GetXHTML());

Basically you just need to change the ‘FCKEditorFieldName’ to what you have FCKEditor already set to yet this then pulled the data so that i execute it later within the AJAX script.
