How to Add Buttons to TinyMCE in phpFox

This article will focus on how to add buttons to the TinyMCE installation in phpFox.

The default installation of TinyMCE on phpFox has some of the most commonly used format buttons displayed, however, you may find that you want to offer your members more formatting options.  This is very easy to do.

In your phpFox admincp, select the Settings menu and select Manage Settings.

On the Manage Settings screen, scroll down to Module Settings, and select TinyMCE.

On the next screen, you will find that you can add buttons to any of three rows, Advanced Buttons 1, Advanced Buttons 2, and Advanced Buttons 3.

Advanced Buttons 1 has a list of buttons that are shown by default.  You can move any of these buttons to any of the other rows, or place them in any order you choose.  You can add new buttons or remove buttons to any of the rows by typing the button’s name followed by a “, ” (without the quotes).  Note that you can add a separation between sets of buttons by typing “separator” followed by a “,”.

Visit to view all the buttons that are available for you to add.

Once you have added the buttons you want to add, select Submit to save the changes.

You should now be able to add any buttons that are available to your TinyMCE button rows.
