I'm trying to add the ability to be able to align text left, right and center to my rich text fields. I have had a look into it and can only find a version which works perfect for body fields but not rich content.

The plugin I tried to use for this is here: https://github.com/elliotlewis/Redactor-Extras

I also looked at redactorstyles which did the same thing.

Is there possibly a way to apply this to all fields or is there another way I could go about it in redactors standard.json?

    Doesnt work for me any more. Is the "alignment" plugin not available any more in the latest redactor version?

Per their configuration docs, which also link to Craft's docs on the subject, it looks like you'd just need to add "alignment" to the plugins portion of one of your craft/config/redactor/ JSON config files.


    "plugins": ["alignment"]

Then whatever config you end up modifying, you'll want to make sure that config is selected under that field's settings in Craft (Settings->Fields->Your Rich Text Field).

  • Just what I needed, turns out I was missing out that last step. Thanks!

    This does not work as Craft does not include the Alignment plugin. P&T, please add this plugin. imperavi.com/redactor/plugins/alignment Oct 19, 2017 at 2:35

In case anyone runs into this issue and finds the Redactor-Extras plugin isn't working, this plugin by Doug Thwaites worked for me: https://github.com/DougThwaites/CraftRedactorFontAlignment

  • Welcome to Craft! There's no need for a plugin - just add "plugins": ["alignment"], to your Redactor config Oct 19, 2020 at 19:20
  • It's that easy to tell I'm new to Craft? I don't know if that's a good sign or a bad one... Oct 21, 2020 at 13:48
