Hi, I am a little sceptic of the new add Link panel because when I try to edit a link this is not very intuitive : multi paragraph links display code elements that can eb hard to read for users

I would rather like the default behaviour of tinymce, what do you guys think ?

Hi Erwanpia

I generally find the SS Link editor better mainly for one reason: the TreeDropdown selector. If you are making internal links it's so much easier than the TinyMCE default which makes you type out the URL.

But anyway if you want the default you can just change it in cms/javascript/tinymce.template.js, replace 'sslink' with 'link' on line 33 :)

Hi guys I need to be able to access the ID when trying to insert a ID into a A href link for a fancybox use. I noticed the default TinyMCE link window has this attribute there, but I am hoping to bea ble to create a button or dropdown selection so the user can simply choose what fancybox fade they want. Im not 100% sure on how I go about doing this with SS and TinyMCE.

I have a post over at:

If someone could take a look would be great.
