TinyMCE Skin - Cirkuit

Style your TinyMCE Editor with Cirkuit Skin

Current Version: 0.5 - Last Updated: April 5, 2011 - Verified as compatible with the newest jQuery libraries (currently, version 1.5.2)

'cirkuitSkin' is a simple and clean tinyMCE theme skin that comes with a few extra enhancements over the default TinMCE skin:

  • Uses new menu icon sprite for diferent toolbar icons. This sprite was a combination of TinyMCE's default icons and the FamFamFam Silk Icon Set
  • Look and feel of buttons inspired by Wordpress.
  • Ability to show / hide advanced toolbar for TinyMCE in Example 2. Code for this was revised from http://www.neele.name/pdw_toggle_toolbars
  • Ability to make editor height smaller than default 450px, and even smaller than minimum 150px hardcoded in to TinyMCE in Example 4.

As you can see, a lot of this skin is the combined work of other open source projects that currently exist, however when they are all merged together 'as-is', there are a lot of conflicting issues and very quirky problems in Internet Explorer (surprise surprise) and a few other issues with webkit browsers. All of these issues have been fixed in our TinyMCE cirkuit skin.


Example 1 - Default editor with three toolbars (one standard and two advanced)
Example 2 - Default editor with one primary toolbar and two collapsible advanced toolbars
Example 3 - Editor with one toolbar for simplified text
Example 4 - Very small (30px height) editor for extremely simple text
