Access to TinyMCE Plugins and Options
There is also this INCREDIBLY USEFUL link where someone (what a guy!) has packaged up all of the ways to extend the tinyMCE rich text editor (e.g. tables, images, etc) in one useful download - http://www.mkbergman.com/?p=275
I use it in combination with the image manager for easy editting! http://www.soderlind.no/archives/2006/01/03/imagemanager-20/
@trubble - it looks as if those instructions for extending TinyMCE aren't applicable to WordPress 2.1 (yet)
Those using WordPress 2.1 and who have trouble remembering the hotkey to get them, might want to look at the
Visualize Advanced Features plugin.
It's pretty much equivalent to the hotkey solution mentioned above -- but it puts the "show/hide advanced toolbar" on the *first* toolbar (the default) instead of the second.
I would also love to see TinyMCE (and Quicktags) customization as part of the WordPress core.
It would be great if at least part of this control was at the theme level. Imagine if a theme designer could define a set of buttons corresponding to the stylesheet of the theme.
For example, I have WordPress sites with custom themes that I've designed for other non-technical users to use. I would like to define a header button that does an h3 but not offer h1 and h2 since they are part of the theme design for the page and post title. I'd also like to add picture formatting buttons that apply my theme's styles for floating left and right. And finally, I'd love to be able to remove a few unneeded buttons that can mess up the formatting in that theme.
This would be a great way for theme designers to custom integrate their theme with editor and be easy for savvy users to modify like they do other parts of a theme.
There are at least a couple of plugin developers trying to give more control over the editor. It's not impossible, but it has been getting better over time.
I am the author of WP Super Edit, and I worked this summer to build a plugin with a framework for TinyMCE buttons and options.
Maybe someday these sort of configurations could be in WordPress by default, unfortunately adding all the options for the editor would probably make the WordPress download quite large.
Handling tinyMCE config / plugin directory using FTP / File Manager is cumbersome, and taking into the account the size of tinyMCE install, some extra size should not be a problem.
- Adding RTL (Right-to-Left) to TinyMCE
- Adding new languages to the "Language" drop-down menu including right-to-left languages
Speakers of non-European languages need to change the language through the TinyMCE. It is specially essential for right-to-left languages, so the text entered in the text box and the title box can behave as a right-to-left text.
It would be great if the editor was able to pick up the styles I've set in my stylesheet for the current template and allow me to apply then to elements. Maybe that is a separate issue, I dunno.
@ninjaboy: yes you should be using tables - for tabular data. That's what tables are for.
Good idea, gets my voice as well.
Great idea. A customizable TinyMCE would make this useful add-on more useful, but it might need some js coding to make some features displayed and functioned.
