The TinyMCE Advanced settings page, advanced options.
The WordPress editor after installing this plugin (default plugin settings).
The TinyMCE Advanced settings page, user options.
The TinyMCE Advanced settings page, toolbars options.
The TinyMCE Advanced settings page, admin options.
Best is to install directly from WordPress. If manual installation is required, please make sure that the plugin files are in a folder named “tinymce-advanced” (not two nested folders) in the WordPress plugins folder, usually “wp-content/plugins”.
No styles are imported in the Formats sub-menu.
These styles are imported from your current theme editor-style.css file. However some themes do not have this functionality. For these themes TinyMCE Advanced has the option to let you add a customized editor-style.css and import it into the editor.
I have just installed this plugin, but it does not do anything.
Change some buttons on one of the toolbars, save your changes, clear your browser cache, and try again. If that does not work try reloding the Edit page several times while holding down Shift or Ctrl. There may also be a network cache somewhere between you and your host. You may need to wait for a few hours until this cache expires.
When I add “Smilies”, they do not show in the editor.
The “Emoticons” button in TinyMCE adds the codes for the smilies. The actual images are added by WordPress when viewing the Post. Make sure the checkbox “Convert emoticons to graphics on display” in “Options – Writing” is checked.
The plugin does not add any buttons.
Make sure the “Disable the visual editor when writing” checkbox under “Users – Your Profile” is not checked.
I still see the “old” buttons in the editor
Click the “Restore Default Settings” button on the plugin settings page and then set the buttons again and save.
