Adding text color

I am trying to install the colorbutton addon for CKEditor so that we can get a color change option in Expresso fields. I followed the documentation and downloaded colorbutton, put this in my /themes/user/expresso/ckeditor_4.5.10/plugins folder, then went into expresso.js and added colorbutton to the extraPlugins list.

Currently it is not showing in the addon settings nor in the toolbar.

The custom toolbar seems to not be working, when I add sample code and save, the toolbar does not change.

Luckily I found this old post:

It wasn’t clear in documentation that i had to select “custom” on the field settings to get a custom toolbar.

Once the custom toolbar was selected, I was able to figure out how to add in the new colorbutton field

So sorry for the delay in getting back to you here. We were not receiving email notifications due to email issues. You are correct that you must use the custom configuration in order to use CKEditor plugins - glad you got that sorted out.
