    Hmmmm…

    If the plugin won’t install via the normal WP installation process… then you may have to manually install the plugin.

    This could be because your server has the “max_upload_filesize” set to a number too low for the plugin to update properly.

    To manually install a plugin… you can download the .zip file.. extract the file… then copy over the “ultimate-tinymce” folder into your “wp-content/plugins/” directory.

    If this makes no sense to you… lemme know… and I’ll type out some simple instructions to follow.

    That’s okay.

    Most of the plug-ins I have tried seem to not work on version 3.5.

    So I scrapped the project and started over with the older 3.4.2 of WordPress. I believe that version 3.5 is broken or has broken many of the plug-ins and themes. This is to be expected with most new major-version upgrades.

    So I will stick with version 3.4.2 for while being that it still works properly.

    Thanks anyway. 🙂

    No worries, Jim.

    So are you going to install Ultimate Tinymce on your 3.4.2? I’m just curious and wanting feedback 🙂

    Yeah. I probably will.

    I LOVE my “toy” widgets! 😉

    My big headache is making sure that what I have working at home, will smoothly upload to my site and work there too, with minimum fuss.

    I would like to have nice features to create some nice content.

    I’m gonna mark this as resolved. I don’t really think there is anything else I can do with this particular issue.

    If I can be of any more assistance, or you feel it shouldn’t be marked as “resolved”… please feel free to change it back.

    Thanks again!

    From my issue, I would consider it resolved by a “work around”.

    As for it not properly working with the newest version of WordPress, if there are other similar complaints with this version, that may say differently.

    As far as I am concerned, I am sticking with 3.4.2 for the time being.

    Anyway, thanks for the feedback.

    Hi Josh,

    Thank you very much in advance for your assistance. Basically, I have recently taken over a company website to manage and make updates to. I have the current version 3.5 and have installed the TinyMCE Advanced plugin and customized the toolbar with what I wanted in there. The only problem is that when I go to edit a page, the toolbar is nowhere to be seen, as though it did not install properly, event though it looks fine when I click on it in the Settings Tab.

    Is there anyway for me to get this to start working, to make updating content that much easier.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Greg,

    Are you talking about the “Tinymce Advanced” plugin… or the “Ultimate Tinymce” plugin?

    My plugin is the “Ultimate Tinymce” plugin.

    Hi Josh,

    Thank you so much for your reply. Unfortunately I am talking about the “Tinymce Advanced” plugin.

    Would you by any chance know who I could contact for this?

    Regardless, thanks for your time!

    Would THIS help you out, Greg?

    Author of TinyMCE Advanced

    And his project page is here.

    Usually, the number one expert in a plugin, is its very author. 🙂

    I do have a question for you, Josh.

    I am going to have trouble installing this plugin to my live site because the webhosting provider limits upload sizes to 2 MB. This I can not get around because it is one a free hosting account (for now, anyway).

    How else will I be able to install it to my live site?

    I have not checked to see if WordPress supports any other archive formats, or any higher-level compression ratios that are greater than the recognizable “inflate/deflate” compression ratio.

    Any ideas?

    – Jim

    Update:

    It is NOT installing on my machine under this version of WordPress either!

    I guess I need to figure out how to do a manual install of it.

    What a shame!

    I am beginning to wonder of WinDOZE is a part of the problem? I should be having no problems installing it on my local machine under XAMPP.

    I don’t get it.

    Forget about the last post.

    The little text “readme” file helped me out. Seems that the folders created in its entries in WP’s “upgrades” folder was missing a lot of files. So I manually extracted the contents of the zip-file into the right “plugins” folder as suggested.

    Seems a few plugins still give me trouble if I use WP’s “upload and install” features. So I guess I am going to have to try manual extraction-and-install if all else fails me?!?

    Looks pretty good here!

    I am not sure if this a FireFox issue, or what: I end up having to move the font-color style properties to a different tag from the “span”-tags because if they are styled within span-tags, I see no change in the font colors.

    Is there a way for me to change where these style “color: #??????” property settings are inserted?
