[resolved] GCB seems to conflict with editor-extender (5 posts)

    I am using editor-extender 0.2.1 to give content managers (most of whom are not comfortable with html) advanced formatting options. I activated GCB, and the visual editor reverted back to the original WP toolbars. Is there some way we can have our cake and eat it, too? :)

    Hi ttice, working on a solution that will allow the two plugins to co-exist, probably by adding an option to turn off the icon on the toolbar but still allow short codes to be added manually.

    If you can email me via http://wordpress-plugins.org I can send you a version updated with an option (at the bottom of the settings page) for the icon not to appear on the editor toolbar. I haven't tested it with editor-extender 0.2.1 but should work.

    Haven't got time to release it as a new version on the repository at the moment.

    Thank you much. I may have emailed you more than once - I kept getting an error on the request form submission. I will post feedback here as soon as I can.

    Update: Doing research on the issue, I found an alternative to editor-extender: tinymce-advanced, which works at least well. (I don't know why it didn't turn up in my plugin searches.) Using that, everything's hunky-dory.

    As the point was to make editing as easy as possible, just eliminating the icon and using shortcodes wasn't a great option for us, of course; I couldn't say whether that would be a useful new feature or not. I do appreciate the help however.

    Anyway, happily eating cake... mmm!
