TinyMCE FontAwesome Plugin

v2.1.0

A plugin that lets you insert FontAwesome icons via TinyMCE. Currently uses FontAwesome v4.7.0 and is tested on TinyMCE v4.4.2.

Instructions

  1. Make sure you have FontAwesome loaded on the page that contains TinyMCE.
  2. Copy the fontawesome folder from this repository into your TinyMCE plugins folder.
  3. Add this to your TinyMCE script:
tinymce.init({
    ...
    content_css: 'https://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css',
    noneditable_noneditable_class: 'fa',
    plugins: 'fontawesome noneditable',
    toolbar: 'fontawesome',
    extended_valid_elements: 'span[*]'
});

Joomla Instructions

Note: I'm not sure how to do add noneditable_noneditable_class: 'fa' to tinymce.init() in Joomla. I had a quick look but I couldn't see a way. Perhaps the Joomla TinyMCE plugin needs to be modified to include this option.

  1. Make sure you have FontAwesome loaded on the page that contains TinyMCE. If you don't add http://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.7.0/css/font-awesome.min.css directly to the template or use this plugin to add it.
  2. Copy the fontawesome folder from this repository into /media/editors/tinymce/plugins/.
  3. Go to Joomla admin panel. In the top menu choose "Extensions" > "Plugins". Search for Editor - TinyMCE and then click on the result.
    1. Change "Functionality" to Advanced.
    2. In the "Custom CSS Classes" field add https://netdna.bootstrapcdn.com/font-awesome/4.6.3/css/font-awesome.min.css.
    3. In the "Extended Valid Elements" field add span[*].
    4. Go to the "Advanced" tab.
    5. In the "Custom Plugin" field add fontawesome noneditable.
    6. In the "Custom Button" field add fontawesome.
    7. Add noneditable_noneditable_class: 'fa' to tinymce.init(). Not sure how to do this.
    8. Save the plugin.

If you find a bug or you want a feature added please create an issue. However there is no guarantee that I will work on issues as I don't have much spare time. If you create a pull request I will probably accept it.
