maybe it's a pretty basic question, but I just can't figure it out:

How do I define styles for the 'styleselect' in the SimpleTinyMCE. In my popup I only see the empty dropdown box.

- Trying to add it somehow in the _config.php --> could not find any documentation - no luck
- Adding styles in the editor.css and flushing the caches like crazy --> no luck

Any help is appreciated.

Cheers from Austria,

This thread might help:

in _config.php add:

$base = Director::absoluteBaseURL();
SimpleTinyMCEField::set_default_extra_options("body_class: 'typography', document_base_url:'$base'");

but as thread mentions, in Internet Explorer, has some issues (when in a popup). Havent yet found a solution to that.
