Legacy Output plugin

Changes HTML output to old HTML syntax such as font, b and i

Contribute to this page

Important: The Legacy Output plugin (legacyoutput) was deprecated with the release of TinyMCE 5.9. For details, see the Legacy Output plugin deprecation notice. The Legacy Output plugin will be removed in TinyMCE 6.0.

The legacyoutput plugin changes TinyMCE’s output, producing legacy elements such as font, b, i, u, strike, and use align attributes.

Important: Editor content created while this plugin is active will be formatted using HTML3. Using this plugin will greatly reduce the functionality of the editor.

This plugin can be useful if you want to use TinyMCE in a legacy HTML mail client.

However, this is not intended for use in producing normal web content such as in a CMS. These elements should no longer be used for such purposes since they are deprecated in later XHTML and HTML5 specifications.

Basic setup

  selector: 'textarea',  // change this value according to your HTML
  plugins: 'legacyoutput'
