Hi all,

I want to remove the Edit HTML Source button from the CMS before I hand it over to a client (don't particularly want them pasting in random bits and pieces and things like that).

I've tried HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->removeButtons('advcode'); as per but the button doesn't disappear from the editor. Am I missing something? Any tips on the best way to customise TinyMCE this way?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Just to let you know this worked fine for me (2.4.x) - but it didn't seem to at first, but after placing a debug point to see what was going on - it started working - strange. As a last, last, last resort you could just remove the 'advcode' from the code that intialises it (and also teh cms/_config.php that removes/adds it)

Well, your code works perfectly for me. (using SS.2.4.5)
Is it in your mysite/_config.php? Sure there are no typos?

Thank you for the replies ... definitely no typos, the line in my original post was directy copied and pasted :(

swaiba, how did you place the debug point? Perhaps I could try that.
