Special symbols in TinyMCE
TinyMCE has evolved over the years, allowing more and more flexibility with the features it offers and capabilities it allows to customize. And this is pretty handy as every client has their unique needs and requirements for what they want their Rich Text Editors to do.
My use case - pretty straightforward - among the many customizations already on, we needed to accommodate very special symbols in the RTE. Now I'm not the first person to present this need ofcourse, which is why TinyMCE already had a plugin called Charmap that contains a whole ensemble of special symbols to use from. And talk about flexibility, it also gives you, the developer, the capability to customize this plugin and add more symbols to it, in case yours are not in the preset list.
And, what do you know.. not all of mine made the preset list cut, ofcourse! :)
So, I added them in there. Read the complete post here to find out exactly how! There are some good to know details in there for sure.
