Features I cannot find in Redactor

Permalink
Here are some features I use all the time, but cannot find in Redactor:
1. Hyperlink: open in a new window
2. Hyperlink: add style and class
3. Table: edit style
4. Superscripts and subscripts.
5. Add an anchor

Thanks,


Todd

Hi Todd,

There are some threads on this topic right now. Here is one to look over.
http://www.concrete5.org/index.php?cID=664043...

Superscript and subscript are supported in Redactor using custom styles.

Here are instructions on adding a custom style.
http://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/5-7-discussion/adding-red...

You would add these two classes to your theme and use them as custom styles.

.superscript {
vertical-align: super;
font-size: smaller;
}

subscript
.subscript {
vertical-align: sub;
font-size: smaller;
}

Hello MrKDilkington,

I wish I could act on what you shared. However, I am simply a blogger who happens to like concrete5. I am not a developer. I do not know how to do the things you shared.

I had been using those features every day for years. TinyMCE provided them effortlessly. But with Redactor, a 5.7 website is unusable to me.

If I understand correctly, I will need to pay a developer to "fix" Redactor.

Thank you,


Todd

Hi Todd,

You won't have to pay to add features to Redactor. New features will come in time. I would stay with version 5.6 until 5.7 has what you need.

The nature of an open source project like concrete5 means that some things take time. There are only so many people available, and have the skills, to work on a task.

I started a new concrete5 site this week with 5.7.2.1. For my purposes, the Redactor issues have made it unusable.

Four of those five critical features (see above) are still missing in Redactor. That is after five updates and six months. I am using 5.7.4.2.

"1. Hyperlink: open in a new window"
- this is part of 5.7.4

"2. Hyperlink: add style and class"
- adding classes is part of the Add and Remove Classes and ID's plugin

What specific styles are you looking to add to links?

"3. Table: edit style"
- this is in development

"4. Superscripts and subscripts."
- this is available by default through keyboard shortcuts
- it also available in button form with the Subscript and Superscript buttons plugin

"5. Add an anchor"
- this is in development

The first post included additional plugins and other information.
http://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/5-7-discussion/redactor-i...

Using Redactor plugin packages:
1. extract the plugin zip file into your concrete5 packages directory
2. install the package
Dashboard > Extend concrete5 > Add Functionality
3. enable the Redactor plugin
Dashboard > System & Settings > Basics > Rich Text Editor

Redactor will strip script tags from your content.

"An embedded Tweet combines HTML preview content with Twitter-hosted JavaScript to display a fully-rendered Tweet experience."
https://dev.twitter.com/web/embedded-tweets...

To embed code that contains script tags, I recommend using the HTML block.

The upcoming version 8 of concrete5 has a new rich text editor called CKEditor. There may be options in the future for using plugins to display this type of content.

Hi thanks for your reply
I can'ti use an html block because this is a blog and need to embed on text editor.
I've just try the ckeditor but the problem persist.
I think the problem is the code strip but There are no solution for that.
How can i convert the twemoji on the editor ?
Ora make it support the Twitter twemoji?
Any idea?
Thanks again
