isicsWidgetFormTinyMCE plugin

You miss TinyMce since you've started using symfony 1.1? No matter, this widget is very easy to use and lets you a lot of flexibility.


  • First, download the last version of TinyMCE here: and place tiny_mce folder in your web/js directory. If you're using the GZip version, download the PHP compressor too.

  • Install the plugin

    $ symfony plugin:install isicsWidgetFormTinyMCEPlugin
  • Clear your cache:

    $ symfony cache:clear


Basic usage

You can now use the new widget for building your form:

  'my_rich_text' => new isicsWidgetFormTinyMCE(array('tiny_options' => array('theme' => 'advanced'))

As you can see, isicsWidgetFormTinyMCE add the option tiny_options wich is an array off the Tiny Options (look at the TinyMCE wiki for help).

If you're using the sames options many times, why don't use an app setting? Edit your app.yml and add a tiny_mce_default param:

    theme: advanced

Your can define your own params too:

    theme: advanced
    theme_advanced_buttons1: 'bold, italic'

And in your PHP code:

  new isicsWidgetFormTinyMCE(array(
    'tiny_options' => sfConfig::get('app_tiny_mce_my_settings', array())

Using options without quotes

The plugin protects all options by quotes. Some options doesn't have to be protected by quotes. By default, the setup option isn't protected.

If you need to unprotect others options, a options_without_quotes option is provided:

  'my_rich_text' => new isicsWidgetFormTinyMCE(array('options_without_quotes' => array('my_option')))

GZip compression

You can use the GZip compressor provided with tinyMCE:

  'my_rich_text' => new isicsWidgetFormTinyMCE(array('with_gzip' => true))

Edit your app.yml and add a tiny_mce_gz_default param:

    plugins:   'style,layer,table,save,advhr,advimage,advlink,emotions,iespell,insertdatetime,preview,media,searchreplace,print,contextmenu,paste,directionality,fullscreen,noneditable,visualchars,nonbreaking,xhtmlxtras'
    languages: 'en'
    themes:    'simple,advanced'

A tiny_gz_options option is also provided with the same usage that tiny_options.
