Formatting Articles

Post by AimeeW » Fri Sep 13, 2019 2:44 pm

I am a new Joomla user working with an established Joomla website. I am currently working my way through the training videos. However, I have noticed the formatting options for my articles differ in both functionality and appearance from the training videos, i.e. some options are missing. How do I enable the full host of fomatting tools for articles?

Welcome to the Joomla forum!

Review of the document https://docs.joomla.org/Content_editors would be of help.

Thank you! The TinyMCE plugin is installed and enabled, but my formatting buttons look nothing like that! I'll keep working my way through the training videos in hopes it will shed some light on it. My current version of Joomla is 3.9.11. See the attached screen shot of my current formatting menu.

From the screenshot, I guess that you are using the extension JCE - not TinyMCE. If this is the case, you have to review the documentation of the extension JCE - https://www.joomlacontenteditor.net/sup ... or-toolbar.

I have no idea how to do that. I'll keep working through the training videos. I'll come back if I can't figure it out!

Thank you for your help! I'm definitely still learning!
