Customising the CMS

Customise TinyMCE for one module

I would like to enable a custom TinyMCE plugin / button that is restricted to one module. The documentation ,, indicates that this is possible by adding the following to your config

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->enablePlugins('../../tinymce_ssmacron'); // enables plugin
HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->insertButtonsAfter('charmap', 'ssmacron');

or by adding to getCMSFields() in your page.

I have tried adding to the module page's getCMSFields() and the module's config with no success. However, it does work if added to the mysite config but, of course, the button then appears on all CMS pages.

Has anyone else done this and, if so, would you be able to let me know what the pitfalls maybe.

Comments on the documentation indicate that it may only work on /mysite/_config.php for some functions.

Hey NickA,

I'm not completely sure of your use case here but would a conditional statement in the mysite/_config.php file do the trick in this instance?

For example:

// Have to use $_GET['url'] because the Director or SiteTree instance doesn't know where we are yet
// All that we have is a url param that's been set by SilverStripe
if(preg_match('/\/mypageurl/', $_GET['url']))

I'm very new here so apologies in advance if the answer is useless/incorrect :D

Although, doesn't SS offer the ability to add a _config.php file to each module... Did adding it in there still not work?

I did a custom tinymce for the jobboard module.

Hope that helps!
