in the drop down I get is "StyleAndFormatting" I need instead to use "FontName"

How do I get the drop down just show the available fonts?


In the source file loadWysiwyg.js I can see the fonts that should be available to the users.

// fonts to display
wysiwyg.arrFontName=["Arial", "Courier New", "Georgia", "Tahoma", "Times New Roman", "Verdana", "impact", "Wingdings"];

I have run the artman_2_16 (tinymce & IE8 patch) - where to now?

Hi there!

You've found the right place already -- just edit that to show the fonts that you want to have available. :)

Thanks Donna - this is the template I am using with these fonts listed - but instead of font names I get the drop down listing "Format, Paragraph, Address, Preformatted, Heading1, etc"

I would think it should list just the fonts that I have - suggestions where else this might be set to have the drop down do this?

Mike - I think we are closer here. It does look like it is the loadWysiwyg.js file. The one that comes with the standard AM2 is over 240 lines of code - it looks like the "tinyMCE" update for firefox replaced that file with a smaller one of only 91 lines. Of course just a simple replace back to the original does not work (tried that). The tinyMCE update file does reference the site http://wiki.moxiecode.com/index.php/TinyMCE:Control_reference for buttone s - and YES I can see where it calls the first button "formatselect" - instead of what I want is fontname.

I also noticed in the original file there are allot of other functionality that is available as buttons (Strikethrough, spellcheck as examples) - are they available in the tinyMCE file - unknown.

Ok I changed the formatselect to be fontselect - reloaded the file on server - and it is fixed - it lists the fonts available.

Problem solved - the tinymce file patch caused the problems. I will continue to investigate now how to add the spellcheck feature - http://wiki.moxiecode.com/index.php/TinyMCE:Plugins/spellchecker - any help in this plugin add would be helpful.

Thanks again

Hi there,

Thanks for the update!

I'm glad to hear you were able to get this working here by tweaking the appropriate .js file.

I don't personally have any experience with the spellchecker but keep us updated on your progress with this! [:)]

Hi, I am unable to get my web hosting company to add font styles to my CMS editor. Can you help so that I can give them direction? There's a dropdown list for "format" and "font size" but I know that I should be able to have a dropdown for "font style".

Thanks!

Hi Big_Lu,

Are you using Article Manager? Can you let me know what version? Are you using the IE8 patch?

I don't know. Our web hosting company set us up with a CMS editor v.1.36. I'm assuming it's yours since after I am logged in and click "help" at the top it brings me to http://www.interactivetools.com/docs/cmsbuilder

Hi there,

Ah, that sounds like CMS Builder, not Article Manager. Try posting in the CMS Builder forum here:

Also, take a look at this post for more specific information on adding styles to CMS Builder:
