TinyMCE Visual Editing for RefineryCMS

TinyMCE is a platform independent web based Javascript HTML WYSIWYG editor control released as Open Source under LGPL.

This is an extention to Refinery to use TinyMCE as the editor in text fields.


Replace in Gemfile:

gem 'refinerycms-wymeditor', ['~> 1.0', '>= 1.0.6']


gem 'refinerycms-tinymce', git: ''

And run:

bundle install

Restart server.


Options set upon initialization can be found in assets/javascripts/refinery/boot_tinymce.js.erb. Options have been selected to match the current functionality of the default WYMeditor that is used with Refinery. The only modification to basic TinyMCE formatting tools is the addition of a plugin: stylebuttons. This plugin replicates the P/H1/H2/H3 style buttons on the WYMeditor toolbar.

Documentation for customization of the tinymce.init function can be found here.

This is the first release and a work in progress. The dialog integration needs a bit of refinement so that the dialogs better fit the TinyMCE paradigm.

Dialogs that show from TinyMCE

Page Link dialog

The link dialog lets you link in several different ways:

  • To an internal page
  • To an external page
  • To an email address
  • To a resource you've uploaded in the Resources tab.

Insert Image dialog

Simply lets you select from an existing image found in the Images tab or upload a new one right within the dialog.
