Hello Forum,

Yesterdays I've updated my Joomla installation from 1.5.10 to 1.5.12.
Due to the upgrade of the built in tinymce editor, the tinymce.php has been stronlgy changed so that the method described here: http://g2image.steffensenfamily.com/index.php?title=Joomla#Built-in_TinyMCE doesn't work anymore.

So now my question is: How can I add the g2image-chooser button to the toolbar for 1.5.12?

found this post via google as i was trying to sort this myself... so sorry for the bump, hope it helps someone save the time i wasted

pre-requisite: i renamed my tinymce from 2.0 to 3.4 (some site somewhere suggested, apparently it is version 3 installed in latest joomla) and therefore used the g2image mod for tinymce 3x

for reference you can`t find the info they say you should find in tinymce.php (in plugins/editors within yer joomla install) - instead,

find this paragraph:

// advimage
$advimage = $this->params->def('advimage', 1);
if ($advimage) {
$plugins[] = 'advimage';
$elements[] = 'img[class|src|border=0|alt|title|hspace|vspace|width|height|align|onmouseover|onmouseout|name|style]';

and paste this underneath

// g2image
$g2image = $this->params->def('g2image', 1);
if ($g2image) {
$plugins[] = 'g2image';
$buttons3_add[] = 'g2image';

i personally then set it to office black skin, extended, and there it was.
