Extend the TinyMCE configuration to include any additional purchased plugins and associated toolbar and menu items. Refer to the following enablement guides for more information:

  • The Tiny Cloud has the Spell Checker Pro plugin enabled.
      <script src="https://your_server/tinymce.min.js"></script>
      <script src="" referrerpolicy="origin"></script>
      <textarea><p>test textarea</p></textarea>
            selector: 'textarea',
