Just TinyMCE Custom Styles

Description

This plugin controls the TinyMce “style_formats” parameter. It allows adding custom formatters to the Wysiwyg editor.

This is only a user interface to the standard feature, which is disabled by default and explained in the official
documentation on codex.wordpress.org: https://codex.wordpress.org/TinyMCE_Custom_Styles

Features

  • Load Settings from DB or .json file from theme
  • Enable/Disable some style_format features for more clean formatting
  • Nice interface to quickly add your formats
  • Ability to apply custom editor css for each rule separately
  • You can group your styles for more clear usage
  • Bootstrap preset: pre-defined bootstrap styles for editor.

Example: Custom link class

For example, you can define an addition dropdown option of the css classes for the link tag.
To do so, create such row formatter:.

  • Title: My Link Style
  • Selector: a
  • Classes: my-link-style
  • Editor CSS: a.my-link-style { color:red; }

Plugin Demo

Presets

We added special feature called “Presets” – these are pre-defined styles included inside the plugin.
You can import them to your site with a single click.

With presets we plan to add popular CSS framework classes to be able to use them inside the editor.
We started with a Bootstrap preset, because it’s one of the most popular CSS framework right now.

This is REALLY useful

Where has this been for so long 🙂

This really is a great little plugin (for TinyMCE advanced) that lets developers add specific class elements that any WYSIWYG user can use without needing to go into the code to add a class element to a required tag.

With options to have a class title that makes sense to anyone, plus the ability to add the class to a tag selector or name to a specific tag just makes it so easy to use in the WYSIWYG editor.

The ability to add additional styles is a bonus, however I tend to leave those blank (my personal choice) and simply have the sites theme editor css file contain the styles predefined. Some may say why not just use the editor css file for classes under the formats menu? While that does work this plugin allows you to have full control of all editor classes you want to use within the editor that are easier to use and to match your front end styles.

You may need to experiment a little to get the correct class added to your required tag, but once it is all done the WYSIWYG TinyMCE Editor is so much more useful.

The main benefit of this is that you can be sure you are adding the required class (and styles) to the tags YOU want.

Big thanks to the developer, please keep this plugin alive …
