Wysihtml5 2.0.1 where are the buttons?

This discussion is related to the Wysihtml5 addon.

I mean same as on plugin screenshot. I've got only buttons with names Bold, Italic and e.t.c



  • Confirmed. I've been seeing this as well in both Vanilla 2.1 and just now tried again in 2.1.3.

    Wysihtml5 2.0.x has been designed for use with the upcoming Font Vanillicon icon font ( The icon classes are present in the markup, although hidden by default. An external icon pack is therefore required until Font Vanillicon becomes part of a stable Vanilla release.

  • Not really sure how to get the icon pack to show up. I downloaded it but where do I place them?

    Create the /resources/fonts/vanillicon/ directory, just like in the master branch on github and place them there.

    And add

    $Sender->AddCssFile('vanillicon.css', 'static');

    to the Gdn_Form_beforeBodyBox_handler function in class.wysihtml5.plugin.php to

    Correction to @Bleistivt‌ post: In 2.1.6 stable, to actually make it work you need both /resources/fonts and /resources/css directories from the master branch. Also, the line to add to class.wysihtml5.plugin.php is this one instead:


    Finally you may want to edit views/toolbar.tpl to remove the spans since otherwise it will show both the text and the icons after these steps.

    Seems like a truncated comment. Anyway, copied the resources folder (with everything in in) and also made the change (not sure exactly where as the comment is unclear). Didn't work. Tried all the changes that @jportoles suggested instead, didn't work either.

    I must be doing it in the wrong place, or this doesn't work on 2.1.11 or something else is wrong.
    Please help.

    @jportoles suggestion works for me

    1. Go here:
    2. Download the css in the /css folder
    3. Open class.wysihtml5.plugin.php and find Gdn_Form_beforeBodyBox_handler and add Gdn::controller()->addCssFile('resources/css/vanillicon.css');
    4. Remove {t c="Center"} and all in the same category

    This process should take you 2 - 3 minutes.

    Will work in 2.1.11

    Thank you @Zapz, I applied numbers 1,2,and 3 before without success. Number 4 is not clear. I can't find "{t c="Center"}" in the CSS files of the wysihtml5 plugin css files... Perhaps I'm looking in the wrong spot because I don't understand what you mean by "..and all in the same category" (what category? which file?)
