upgrade to TinyMCE 3

Post by Stasys » Tue Mar 04, 2008 2:43 am

Are there any plans to upgrade TinyMCE, cause now we all use old 2.1.2 instead of TinyMCE 3.0.4

It implies a fix of tinymce.php if we want to use TinyMCE 3

Not a white paper as was asked for here: http://forum.joomla.org/viewtopic.php?f ... 4#p1204116. Also has been mentioned before in this forum.

Moving to denied.

Tonie, I know, this is not exactly the form of a whitepaper, but I wanted to propose it this way, since it is no big issue and change, but very great improvement. Could you be so kind and give me the link where it have been mentioned that upgrade from outdated TinyMCE 2.1.2 to new TinyMCE 3.0.4.1 is mission critical?

Implications
This is 100% backwards compatible and does not create any performance or user issues.

It implies only a fix of tinymce.php if we want to use TinyMCE 3

Now we have couple years old Joomla 1.5 core content editor, it makes Joomla look like abandoned project from PR aspect, and from technological point of view it outputs very unvalid, messy code

Here I post part (the completed changelog is far bigger) of the list of what was fixed and improved in TinyMCE 3:

Version 3.0.5 (2008-03-xx)
2 Fixed bug where the menu for the ColorSplitButton wasn't removed when the editor was removed.

23 Fixed so the layout for the o2k7 skin looks better if you don't have separators before and after list boxes.
24 Fixed so the sub classes get a copy of the super class constructor function to ease up type checking.
25 Fixed so font sizes for the format block previews are normalized according to http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/sample.html (it can be overridden).

I've created a plugin that will add TinyMCE3 support.

http://www.e-berzerk.com/opensoft/joomla_tinymce3/

I will update the XML to provide better option control at a later date.

Hi there,

I've installed everzerk plugin to upgrade to TinyMCE 3 because I need the pagebrake button of TinyMCE which happens to work only in version 3.

I have modified tinymce3.php in order to load pagebreak plugin and button this way:

Code: Select all

plugins : \"advlink, pagebreak, advimage, $plugins\",
			theme_advanced_buttons1 : \"bold,italic,underline,strikethrough,|,justifyleft,justifycenter,justifyright,justifyfull,styleselect,formatselect,fontselect\",
			theme_advanced_buttons2 : \"bullist,numlist,|,outdent,indent,|,undo,redo,|,link,unlink,anchor,image,cleanup,code,$buttons2\",
			theme_advanced_buttons3 : \"removeformat,hr,|,sub,sup,|,pagebreak,|,$buttons3\",
The editor loads well, if I look to the source generated I got my changes but the button is not shown, any ideas of what is missing?

Here's an screenshot of the editor.
