Access to TinyMCE Plugins and Options

    IF WP is going to stick with Tiny MCE it would be great if there was a Tiny MCE Plugin page where one could add functionality to the WYSIWYG editor (just as we do to WordPress itself). Tiny MCE already has lots of plugins for all sorts of needs.

    I've hacked my Tiny MCE so that I can add functions to the write screen menu via span tags and CSS. For instance, I have a "float right" and "float left" drop down I can use for pictures. It'd be great if WP made this sort of customization easier. At the least, the key Tiny MCE components could be available on the files menu.

    Yes, this is really needed!
    - change the default-button (add, delete, re-arrange)
    - add new button of the tinyMCE-core (like the 'headline 1'-dropdown)
    - add custom buttons for plugins

    definately second that. tinyMCE is a quite stable base but it's too locked down. there are so many wp-plugins that need implementation in posts via html, giving people the option to simply write small tinyMCE plugins and include them with their wp plugins would certainly improve using tinyMCE

    nmallory,

    If you want me to send you the file by e-mail, I can. It took me a while to dig through the Tiny MCE docs to figure out where to modify, but the mod was actually very simple. Just one line per style.

    I also added span tags that make "fancy quotes." Basically it's just a larger font with a certain width, but it creates nice magazine style highlight quotes right from the WYSIWYG editor.

    Here's a partial list of plugins. There are many many more being offered.

    ABSOLUTELY! I've been looking for a way to JUST add a [header] button to the rich text. It stinks having to use the HTML feature all of the time just to insert an < h3 > to my tags.

    Oh, and don't take that as "take away the HTML feature" because most of us would die without it.

    Oh, yeah, I'm forever in the HTML editor.

    I too find myself spending way more time in the HTML editor than I want to. It would be great if TinyMCE would be easier to extend and customize. I was using the EditorMonkey plug-in, but it is no longer supported and was a complete secondary installation of TinyMCE.

    I would love to be able to add just a few more buttons to TinyMCE without having to wade through that code. As mentioned earlier, <H1> - <H6> would be great for headings. Float would be nice as well, but at least it is available through the picture editing pop-up dialog.

    Hi, I'm italian blogger, and me too like to extend the tinymce funtions in WP with the tinimce plugin. Not only Just for a better use of the code (that I think is one of the goal of this project, and is for this that I use it), but for give more accessibility to the readers, for let growing the use of some tag (like acronym, cite, q, ecc.) and attribute (like lang and hreflang - important for blind spell browser). I think is important for some kind of readers, and browsers. Now is very difficult to customize, and add the tags in the html editor take a lot of time, if you write long posts.
