Extra Fields > Missing options in the toolbar of the editor 9 months 4 weeks ago #160196

Hi,

I use Joomla 3.6.5 and K2 2.7.1 while my default editor is TinyMCE.

In the main content editor I get all the options in the toolbar of the editor, while on the extra field editor I dont.

Here are the screenshot of the two textareas:

Has anyone faced this ? How can I add more options in the editor of the extra field ?

Kind Regards
j.

Hello there,

By default all the editor xtd plugins are rendered only in the main editor.

Hi Krikor,

thank you for the reply. So, there is no "official way" to add some extra functionality at the editor of the extra fields ?

The problem is that the users got panic when they show it.

Kind Regards
John

Hi i seem to need this as well. isn't there a solution to load all the xtd plugins (or choose between the 3 TinyMCE Sets) for the extra fields textareas?

Hi there,

so far I have not found a solution on this and it is so frustrating when you have an extra field which contain HTML formatting .

It is so dissapointing

Hi Krikor,

yes this option has been activated but the editor has only the basic formatting capabilities.

For example you cannot create a link !!
You cannot view the source code !!

So, as you guess it is pretty difficult to handle such elements.

Thank you so much for your time and your advices so far!

Hi Krikor and than you for the answer.

yes the option is enabled. the problem is that the extrafield textarea in the item edit (or create) page, loads the simplest possible TineMCE set. and we need to customize that.
since there is no option to change that, there should be a file somewhere that calls the TinyMCE script..... but i can't seem to be able to find it...
