The "HTML" button no longer seems to show in the WYSIWYG. The button is set in the Redactor config file like so:

    "buttons": ["html","formatting","bold","italic","unorderedlist","orderedlist","link","image","video"],"plugins":["fullscreen","video"],
    "toolbarFixed": true

    Yeah, Brandon posted it on Slack. I also didn't find a link from the docs.

It turns out that the latest redactor seems to now have a plugin for viewing the source. You can enable this in your redactor JSON config file under plugins. Just add the "source" plugin like so:

    "buttons": ["format", "bold", "italic", "lists", "image"],
    "plugins":["fullscreen", "source"],
    "toolbarFixed": true
  • I have two files, Simple.json, and Standard.json. All of my Rich Text fields were set to default. So I added another file in /config/redactor/Default.json with the above and this adds another Default option if I change it to the new Default it works. Is there not a way to change the default options without adding another Default option. It's going to be a pain to go through and change them all to standard as I have a lot of different matrix blocks, fields, etc.

  • I could be wrong, but I imagine the "default" setting will use the defaults set by the redactor library. It might be worth asking this as a separate question. One thing you could try is to backup your database, then go to the craft_fields table and then do a find and replace in the settings column on the rich text fields. They're set like this: {"configFile":"Standard.json","columnType":"text"} A rich text field with default selected will look something like this: {"configFile":"","columnType":"text"}. Not tried this myself but it may work.

  • I already changed them all to Standard, and updated Standard.json. Just seems like an odd redactor update. Also images are now no longer able to be dragged around to resize etc. Now looking into that.

  • Good luck! There have been a few issues with image magic and the latest update. I highly recommend joining the Craft slack channel if you haven't already. Quite a few people are having issues and sharing fixes etc due to the update.

You need to add "html" in the buttons array, and not "source" in the plugins array.
