John Ehringer recently posted at Moodle.org about the new TinyMCE 3 installation instructions for 1.9.12. I was able to install this successfully for Moodle 1.9.10* using only the three-step process outlined by the TinyMCE team at Github: https://github.com/WebCourseworks/moodle/tree/tinymce. Specifically you’ll want to peruse the readme installation provided in the Moodle.org forum post: https://github.com/WebCourseworks/moodle/blob/tinymce/readme-tinymce.md
The three steps:
- Copy this file into your Moodle installation: /lib/tinymcelib.ph
- Copy this directory into your Moodle installation /lib/editor/tinymce/, overwrite the existing directory.
- Add the following two lines of code to /lib/setup.php before the ?> at the end of the file:
// THIS MUST BE INCLUDED FOR TINYMCE TO WORK CORRECTLY.
Once I did this TinyMCE was now the new editor!
Step 1 and 2: Upload and overwrite:
Step 3: add code
*note that it doesn’t work in Chrome for me currently (I am looking into it) but it does work in both Internet Explorer and
Chrome Firefox very well. If that’s an issue you might look at one of the other editor in Chrome solutions: http://lmspulse.com/2010/making-moodle-work-better-on-chrome-browser/
