Hi everyone,

in my company we are using the TinyMCE template feature in Silverstripe 2.3 and it works great =)

If I add it in 2.4 the way i added it in 2.3 the template wont show up in the popup. instead i see the errorpage of my website. oO?

Is there another way to add this template feature to TinyMCE or any work around?

thanks in advance

I found the problem:

In SilverStripe 2.3 it works like this:

'template_templates' => array(
        array('title'=>"my Template",'src'=>"themes/...

In 2.4 you HAVE to use an Slash prefix!

'template_templates' => array(
        array('title'=>"my Template",'src'=>"/themes/...

I'm trying to get this to work and was hoping you could share with me the file path you were using (was it in mysite/_config.php?) or did you use the MyLeftAndMainDecorator.php workaround famous here:

Also can you include the entire code snippet, I'm trying this without success:

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOption('template_templates','title[Title Here]|src[themes/mytheme/path/layout1.htm]|description[some description text]');
This gives me an error message, which is more than what i get if i do:
HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOptions(array('template_templates'=>array('title'=>'Title Here','src'=>'themes/mytheme/path/layout1.htm','description'=>'some description text');

Any help would be very much appreciated!

I was lacking an array() level:

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->setOptions(array('template_templates'=>array(array('title'=>'Title Here','src'=>'themes/mytheme/path/layout1.htm','description'=>'some description text'))));

And it is in the MyLeftAndMainDecorator.php file otherwise it is overwritten.

Thanks for your code snippet Ironcheese it saved my day!
