Support » Plugin: TinyMCE Advanced » [Plugin: TinyMCE Advanced] Import/Export Settings

  • I absolutely love this plugin and use it on every client website. Along with a proper editor-style.css file in my themes I can have the page/post editor mimic the front-end styles, eliminating the need to preview a page or post numerous times to get things looking right. Sure that can be done anyway, but with TinyMCE Advanced I can also add commonly used classes to the editor-style.css file, such as theme specific colors or fancy image frames, etc., and have them available in the drop down menu for easy application to the content. This greatly improves the rendered HTML markup eliminating all of those unnecessary inline span styles. Also, users no longer need to remember hex color codes or other complicated combinations to achieve typical results. Just highlight the text and apply the class!

    My only complaint is not having an export/import of settings for the button layout. It’s truly time consuming and a pain in the @$$ to have to recreate my preferred button layout for every website.

    Please add an export/import settings function to make this plugin even better.

  • Without an export/import settings option in the plugin; the only way I was able to accomplish this was to copy the data from the database of an existing installation with the desired options and toolbars layout.

    How to do it:
    Open the wp_options table of the database on the WordPress installation that already has TinyMCE Advanced setup the way you’d like it, and search for the option_name ‘tadv_options’ and ‘tadv_toolbars’. Highlight and copy the option_value for each of these and paste them into the same database table of the new installation.

    I keep these option values in a text file on my computer for easy copying and pasting to each new installation.

    Yes having a import/export option would be nice. Thanks for the tips on getting the backup of the settings. 🙂
