Ok, so it seems the link and image buttons (and a few others) have moved from the toolbar to a right click context menu in the latest version of SS. This is great for windows users, but a pain in the butt for Mac users....especially those who don't have new 2 button mice.....

How can I reinstate the buttons to the tinymce toolbar???

You can customize the TinyMCE buttons using the HtmlEditorConfig class. To add image and link buttons, add the following to mysite/_config.php

HtmlEditorConfig::get('cms')->addButtonsToLine(1, 'ssimage', 'sslink', 'unlink');

You can also completely customize the buttons in the editor, by using ->setButtonsForLine( <lineNr>, <buttonA>, <buttonB>, ...);. For more information, I suggest you have a look at the HtmlEditorConfig class (sapphire/forms/HtmlEditorConfig.php)

An overview of the available TinyMCE controls can be found here:
Above I added 'ssimage' and 'sslink' (instead of 'image' and 'link') which are SilverStripe specific extensions. Sadly, I don't know where and if these are documented.
