TinyMCE Editor

TinyMCE is the default editor for both front-end and back-end users. TinyMCE is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editor that allows users a familiar word-processing interface to use when editing Articles and other content. TinyMCE can be configured with three different sets of toolbar buttons: Set 0, Set 1, and Set 2. This is set as an option in the Plugin Manager for the 'Editor - TinyMCE' plugin. Set 0 is the most extended toolbar and is by default assigned to the Administrator, Editor and Super Users. Set 1 is assigned to the Manager and Registered. Set 2 is assigned to Public.
