    Load tinymce plugin Link to this post


    I've downloaded a plugin for tinyMCE I want to use in the CMS Silverstripe backend. I've tried to add the line in mysite/_config.php as told in http://doc.silverstripe.org/htmleditorconfig

    HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->addButtonsToLine(2, 'textmetrics'); // positions plugin

    And added the Plugin into /sapphire/thirdparty/tinymce/plugins/textmetrics.

    That didn't work. So I tried to do the same as in /cms/_config.php where the configuration is set for the editor and put the plugin into /cms/javascript/tinymce_textmetrics. Then I tried to load with

    HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->enablePlugins(array('textmetrics' => '../../../cms/javascript/textmetrics/editor_plugin_src.js'));
    HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->insertButtonsBefore('tablecontrols', 'textmetrics'); // positions plugin

    I've tried to use insertButtonsBefore insteat of addButtonsToLine just to see if there was a problem.

    But nothing happens at all.... not even errormessages and I don't know what to do. I need extra plugins to load.

    Help appreciated.
    Thx Spanky

    Don't put the path in the plugin name when enabling the plugin.
    It should be


    if that's the name of the plugin.

    That's what I tried. I found out the plugin wasn't working and I tried another one. This works with

    HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->enablePlugins(array('youtube' => '../../../cms/javascript/youtube/editor_plugin_src.js'));
    HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->insertButtonsBefore('tablecontrols', 'youtube'); // positions plugin*/

    You'rs might work too
