WYSIWYG Editable


Similar to Textarea and Input you can use the WYSIWYG editable in the templates to provide rich-text editing.


Name Type Description
customConfig string Path to Javascript file with configuration for CKEditor
enterMode integer Set it to 2 if you don't want to add the P-tag
height integer Minimum height of the field in pixels
toolbarGroups string A toolbar config array (see below)
width integer Width of the field in pixels
class string A CSS class that is added to the surrounding container of this element in editmode


Name Return Description
getData() array Get the value of the wysiwyg
isEmpty() bool Whether the editable is empty or not.


Basic usage

wysiwyg helper doesn't require any additional configuration options. The following code specifies tje height for the rendered WYSIWYG editable (has no effect in frontend).

<section id="marked-content">
    <?= $this->wysiwyg("specialContent", [
        "height" => 200
    ]); ?>

If you have a look at the editmode, you will see that our WYSIWYG is rendered with the full toolbar.

Custom configuration for CKEditor

The complete list of configuration options you can find in the CKEditor toolbar documentation.

The WYSIWYG editable allows us to specify the toolbar. If you have to limit styling options (for example only basic styles like <b> tag and lists would be allowed), just use toolbarGroups option.

<section id="marked-content">
    <?= $this->wysiwyg("specialContent", [
        "height" => 200,
        "toolbarGroups" => [
                "name" => 'basicstyles',
                "groups" => [ 'basicstyles', 'list', "links"]
    ]); ?>

Now the user can use only the limited toolbar.

There is also an additional way to specify the configuration by adding customConfig.

<section id="marked-content">
    <?= $this->wysiwyg("specialContent", [
        "height" => 200,
        "customConfig" => "/custom/ckeditor_config.js"
    ]); ?>
Global Configuration

You can add a Global Configuration for all WYSIWYG Editors for all documents by setting pimcore.document.tags.wysiwyg.defaultEditorConfig

For this purpose, you can create a plugin and add the configuration in the new created file /plugins/MyPlugin/static/js/editmode.js like this:

pimcore.document.tags.wysiwyg.defaultEditorConfig.allowedContent = true;

and add the file to your plugin.xml:


Text Output in Editmode

With the following code you can get the text even in editmode:

<?= $this->wysiwyg("specialContent"); ?>
<?php if($this->editmode): ?>
    <div style="border: 1px solid #000;" class="preview">
        <?= $this->wysiwyg("specialContent")->getData(); ?>
<?php endif; ?>
