Editor Buttons

This is a simple plugin which adds an additional button to the editor page. Set any text in plugin parameters and it will be inserted to your articles when the button is pressed.

Can be used to add frequently used phrases or tags to your articles, i.e. custom module position.

I used this to: Adding the same piece of text to articles or anywhere where the TinyMCE editor is used.
I use this for many websites...
It would be fun if we could add an icon to the setup so that you can click on an icon in the TinyMCE.

Thank you for this , you rock !!!!

Simple but useful plugin

I rate 4 because of it can only insert text in one line.

I modified it to accept multiline text:

Just open joomla->plugins->editors-xtd->customtext->customtext.xml


then change type="text" to type="textarea" cols="30" rows="4".

Reduce stress

These types of simple plugins are really helpful for JOOMLA for making your work faster and relief from stress doing the same thing again and again.
I'm glad to see this extension working just fine on Joomla 3.1.1. Support was swift when I was questioning whether the extension was Joomla 3 compatible. It's also very light weight and inserts what you would expect.

Life and time saver!
