Seeking for a solution to put off red flag. Red flag sometimes will make confusion, when we pass some text to CKEditor and it will show red flag we don't notice in other editors. Thanks.

it will show red flag we don't notice in other editors.

This is how anchors are presented in the editor. This is how this plugin works. We can't add config option for icon because it is not just about icon. The anchor gets cke_anchor class which is in fact hardcoded inside the plugin.

If you want to change it, you can:

  1. Change the anchor.png icon available under ckeditor\plugins\link\images to some other with the same name (don't forget to clear browser's cache). This can be done in release package.
  2. If you want to change whole class you need to edit this plugin. You can get source code from here:!/guide/dev_source,
    make changes here:,
    and finally build your CKEditor release according to!/guide/dev_build.
