We are excited to officially announce the release of TinyMCE version 5.1, including an unsurpassed mobile experience, sticky toolbar, dark mode, table sorting, and more.
With the release of TinyMCE 5.1 comes the best mobile experience for our WYSIWYG HTML editor yet, complete with a slick, new, modern UI.
- Modern look and feel based on the silver theme.
- Advanced user interaction with the editor through the use of horizontal scrolling toolbars and contextual menus.
- Full support for tables so you can work with your tabular data.
- Plugin compatibility for the majority of TinyMCE’s plugins.
We know it can be super annoying when you’re in the middle of writing content and you have to scroll all the way up again to access the controls. That’s why we’ve introduced the sticky toolbar for TinyMCE.
The sticky toolbar (or docking toolbar) docks the toolbar and the menu to the top of the screen when scrolling down a web page. It remains docked until the editor is no longer visible. This allows the menu and toolbar to remain in view when editing large text areas.
Find out more about enabling the sticky toolbar.
It’s not only developers who are opting to work with a dark theme; more people want to flick the switch on their devices and go dark. To keep up with this growing trend, we’ve provided an easy way for you to get dark mode in TinyMCE too.
A new Advanced Tables premium plugin has been released with TinyMCE 5.1. The Advanced Tables plugin extends the core table plugin, allowing content creators to sort table data by rows and columns while editing. Find out more in our documentation about Advanced Tables.
