TinyMCE visual editor support for service

This package provides TinyMCE visual editor support for service: videos, images and other rich media can be inserted to Plone from different services through one API.

The approach here is to use the Transform machinery to replace the URL with embed code by calling the API.

There are more than 200 services that support service. These are such video sharing sites as Youtube,, Vimeo; such audio streaming services as Grooveshark, SoundCloud,; such image/photo stocks as Flickr, and many other: GoogleMaps, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

This product was developed by for Plone collective, sponsored by Headnet ApS


To embed media from the embedly-supported external resource to Plone:

  • Go to the object's edit form, select some text and choose 'Embedly link' style for it.
  • The text should now look like linked. TinyMCE makes the whole passage linked, so keep in mind that the whole passage will later be substituted with embedded media.
  • Select this text again and go to Insert link to insert the URL to the desired object on the external service.
  • Save this page. Now when rendered, there will be "preview" from service inserted instead of the linked text.
