Dynamic Content icon not appearing in TinyMCE editor

Vote:
 

Hi,

I tried creating DynamicContent following the instructions at:

http://world.episerver.com/documentation/items/tech-notes/episerver-cms-6/episerver-cms-6-r2/dynamic-content/

http://blog.fredrikhaglund.se/blog/2011/06/28/dynamic-content-in-episerver-cms-6-r2/

but the Icon doesn't seems to appear. As per below documentation, it should appear always:

http://webhelp.episerver.com/15-1/EN/Default.htm#EN/CMS%20Edit/Edit_DynamicContent.htm%3FTocPath%3DManaging%2520content|Creating%2520content|_____6

Do we need to configure somewhere else to make it appear.

am using v7.15 and v8

Thanks!

Hi!

Dynamic content is not part of the default toolset for Tiny MCE when you install EPiServer. The default toolset is just an example of how Tiny MCE can be configured and you can customize this however you want, both by configuring existing tools as well as building custom plug-ins for Tiny MCE. I suggest that you use the support to define the settings for Tiny MCE in code and add the dynamic content tool as described in this blog post: http://world.episerver.com/blogs/Linus-Ekstrom/Dates/2014/10/typed-property-settings/.

I would also like to inform you that the dynamic content technology has not been updated for a few years and there are things that are currently not supported. For instance, it has support to automatically generate a UI for settings, but this is using the old (pre EPiServer CMs 7) editing system that does not support some things like the CMs media system or some relative new properties like content areas, block/media pickers for instance. You might want to use the ability to drag and drop blocks into the Tiny MCE editor if this solves the use case you need to handle.

Hi Linus,

Thanks for quick response with clarification.

Could have been better if its mentioned in documentation or userguide itself.

Thanks for the feedback Raju. We are looking over the user documentation and SDK to improve this information.
