"font, size or colour of text buttons"

I got it working in the latest version of SilverStripe, by editing the tinymce.template.js file, adding forecolor, fontselect and fontsizeselect to the configuration.

OK so were do i add forecolor, fontselect and fontsizeselect to the configuration. in the tinymce.template.js file on my server? as in do i add to the top of the code or the bottom or replace some code or ? or ?
exactly were ? do i delete anything ? please explain in a very basic way thankyou Screen shots would help too : )

This is the install sub forum. Please ask those kind of question in "Customising the CMS".

Note: "forecolor, fontselect and fontsizeselect" is bad practice. Please use CSS classes and common html tags instead.

However, you can set this option in your _config.php with:
HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->addButtonsToLine(4, 'fontsizeselect,forecolor,fontselect');

You can find your "_config.php" in the "mysite" directory.

Simply add this line in mysite/_config.php:

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->addButtonsToLine(4, 'fontsizeselect,forecolor,fontselect');

Then reload the cms.
