Text editor toolbar options missing font colour

Post by sinucello » Mon Mar 08, 2021 9:54 pm

Hello,
after upgrading from 1.7.8 to 2.3.5 (which went surprisingly well) I`m missing the font colour option in the editor toolbar. One of my editors used this feature a lot and I`d like to enable it for him. Is there any way to do this? (I didn`t enable CKEditor yet because I thought this might be overkill).
thank you - all the best,
Sacha

As a note, colored text on the web is problematic, is italic and bold not enough to highlight text?

You can extend the list buttons above the editor with a plugin. It's the serendipity_event_typesetbuttons, Typeset/Extended Buttons for non-WYSIWYG editors is the title, and it's available in spartacus. The colored button would be set via the Custom HTML-Tags option, and be something like:

Code: Select all

red@<span style="color: red;">@</span>

thank you, I`ll try this out. I agree that coloured text is bad.
