When I upgraded a site from 4.6 to 4.7 Ckeditor lost several buttons - Font, Size, Foreground Colour and Background Colour. I figured out how to restore Font and Size but cannot see how to get the 2 colour buttons back. I went to display preferences and set colorButtonbackStyle(Object) and colorButtonforeStyle(Object) to true, saved and cleared caches, but no buttons showed up. Am I wrong to use this GUI and so should I be updating a config file somewhere?


If you go to civicrm/admin/ckeditor?reset=1 you should be able to activate the plugin "Colorbutton".CKEditor

  • Thanks! Worked but I had to clear browser, drupal and civi caches to see the update. Thanks again. Andy – Andy Clark Jul 18 '17 at 9:09
  • I've added the plugin, but no buttons show in the colors menu group and I can't see how to add them – Mick Kahn Dec 15 '19 at 11:46
