Integrates TinyMCE as alternative WYSIWYG editor in
Backdrop CMS.

Screenshot of the full profile

This module is in an early stage of development. Testing and feedback is
welcome, but it's not recommended for production sites, yet.

Note: this module can co-exist with CKEditor, you can also toggle on-the-fly
in node forms, although having both editors turned on might have side effects
on page performance.

Compatible with the Editor Image Dimension Sync

Why another WYSIWYG editor?

Because CKEditor might eventually not be the ideal solution for your site,
especially beginning with its version 5. This integration module is
supposed to be a drop-in replacement for core's CKEditor module.


  • Install this module using the official Backdrop CMS instructions
  • Visit the Text Editors and Formats page under Administration > Configuration > Content authoring (admin/config/content/formats)
  • Create or edit a format. In the "Editor" dropdown, select "TinyMCE"
  • Optionally switch the profile and add custom content CSS URLs
  • Optionally toggle image or file upload and adapt settings

If none of the three default profiles meets your needs, you can create
custom ones with the builder tool. Go to admin/config/content/tinymce-builder
to create a custom profile via drag-and-drop with the buttons you need.
This builder will not edit existing profiles, just create new ones.

Find additional documentation in the wiki.
