Description


TinyMCE Advanced introduces a “Classic Paragraph” block and a “Hybrid Mode” for the new Block Editor (Gutenberg).
If you are not quite ready to switch to the Block Editor, or have plugins that cannot be used there (yet), using the Classic Paragraph block and Hybrid Mode is your best option.
It lets you to continue to use the familiar TinyMCE editor for most tasks, and at the same time gives you full access to all blocks and new features in the Block Editor.

Version 5.0 is a major update of TinyMCE Advanced. It introduces additional buttons and settings for the “Rich Text” toolbars in the Block Editor. Similarly to the Classic Editor toolbars, most of the buttons can be added, removed or rearranged.

If you want to continue to use the previous (“classic”) editor in WordPress 5.0 and newer, this plugin has an option to replace the new editor with the previous one. If you prefer to have access to both editors side by side or to allow your users to switch editors, it would be better to install the Classic Editor plugin. TinyMCE Advanced is fully compatible with the Classic Editor plugin and similar plugins that restore use of the previous WordPress editor.

As always this plugin will let you add, remove and arrange the buttons that are shown on the Visual Editor toolbar in the Classic Paragraph and Classic blocks in the new Block Editor, and in the Classic Editor (when enabled by a plugin). There you can configure up to four rows of buttons including Font Sizes, Font Family, text and background colors, tables, etc.

It includes 15 plugins for TinyMCE that are automatically enabled or disabled depending on the buttons you have chosen.
In addition this plugin adds options for keeping the paragraph tags in text mode and importing the CSS classes from the theme’s editor-style.css.

Some of the features added by this plugin

  • Hybrid mode that lets you use the best of both editors.
  • Includes a “Classic Paragraph” Block that can be used instead of or together with the default Paragraph Block.
  • Supports converting of most default blocks to “classic” paragraphs, and from classic paragraphs back to the default blocks.
  • Support for creating and editing tables in the Classic Blocks and the Classic Editor.
  • More options when inserting lists in the Classic Blocks and the Classic Editor.
  • Search and Replace in the Classic Blocks and the Classic Editor.
  • Ability to set Font Family and Font Sizes in the Classic Blocks and the Classic Editor.
  • And many others.

Privacy

TinyMCE Advanced does not collect or store any user related data. It does not set cookies, and it does not connect to any third-party websites. It only uses functionality that is available in WordPress, and in the TinyMCE editor.

In that terms TinyMCE Advanced does not affect your website’s user privacy in any way.



FAQ


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 reloading the Edit page several times while holding down Shift. 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

Re-save the settings or click the “Restore Default Settings” button on the plugin settings page and then set the buttons again and save.
