You've installed the TinyMCE package on your server, configured the editor but the it still doesn't appear. What's Wrong?
The most common cause of the editor not appearing (other than specifying the incorrect location of the tinyMCE.js) is the inclusion of a plugin that either doesn't exist, or has an error.
Many people start with the following configuration from the TinyMCE demo site
// General options
mode : "textareas",
theme : "advanced",
plugins : "safari,spellchecker,pagebreak,style,layer,table,save,advhr,advimage,advlink,emotions,iespell,inlinepopups,insertdatetime,preview,media,searchreplace,print,contextmenu,paste,directionality,fullscreen,noneditable,visualchars,nonbreaking,xhtmlxtras,template,imagemanager,filemanager",
// Theme options
theme_advanced_buttons1 : "save,newdocument,|,bold,italic,underline,strikethrough,|,justifyleft,justifycenter,justifyright,justifyfull,|,styleselect,formatselect,fontselect,fontsizeselect",
theme_advanced_buttons2 : "cut,copy,paste,pastetext,pasteword,|,search,replace,|,bullist,numlist,|,outdent,indent,blockquote,|,undo,redo,|,link,unlink,anchor,image,cleanup,help,code,|,insertdate,inserttime,preview,|,forecolor,backcolor",
theme_advanced_buttons3 : "tablecontrols,|,hr,removeformat,visualaid,|,sub,sup,|,charmap,emotions,iespell,media,advhr,|,print,|,ltr,rtl,|,fullscreen",
theme_advanced_toolbar_location : "top",
theme_advanced_toolbar_align : "left",
theme_advanced_statusbar_location : "bottom",
theme_advanced_resizing : true
The problem with this that two of the plugins included (imagemanager and filemanager) are not part of the TinyMCE installation as they are both commercial plugins. Removing them from the plugins list will see TinyMCE load successfully
I did use all those Plugins Tinymce has provided. However, insertdatetime, iespell and print plugins are not working. They dont come up in the editor. Do you have any idea on this?
