Edit the file "blockeditor.thtml" found in /layout/{professional}/admin/block/ with the following codes at the top:

PHP Formatted Code
<script type="text/javascript">
    // Setup editor path for FCKeditor JS Functions
    geeklogEditorBasePath = "{site_url}/fckeditor/" ;
    window.onload = function() {
        var oFCKeditor1 = new FCKeditor( 'content' ) ;
        oFCKeditor1.Config['CustomConfigurationsPath'] = geeklogEditorBaseUrl + '/fckeditor/myconfig.js';
        oFCKeditor1.BasePath = geeklogEditorBasePath;
        oFCKeditor1.ToolbarSet = 'editor-toolbar1';
        oFCKeditor1.Height = 200 ;
        oFCKeditor1.ReplaceTextarea() ;
    }
</script>


Notice the word 'content' in the line:
var oFCKeditor1 = new FCKeditor( 'content' ) ;

That word is the textarea id.

Scroll down to find the textarea code like this one:
PHP Formatted Code
<td><textarea name="content" rows="12" style="width:100%;">{block_content}</textarea><br>


Add id="content" so that it will look like the following:
PHP Formatted Code
<td><textarea id="content" name="content" rows="12" style="width:100%;">{block_content}</textarea><br>


---Note---
If you want more advanced editor buttons, change "editor-toolbar1" to "editor-toolbar2" in the codes at the top.

I tried to activate the editor in blocks again but in 1.8.2 there seems to be a change in the procedure?

Ah, was my error. It is the same procedure as every year!

Which makes me wonder if this activation should take place automatically when chosing the editor for stories?
