It turns out that Telligent has 2 editor modes in the post editor: Simple and Default.

 

In an effort to keep things "Simple" they shipped with the editor in Simple mode.  You can change the editor to Default Mode by editing 2 places in the correct file.  The Advanced editor offers more options such as posting Smileys, Flash, Tables, and other options.  I think it was a smart idea to ship with the simple toolbar, as many of these options would be daunting for the "simple" target they are going for.

 

I found this tip on the MKLAB blog which actually found it from the GCMS support forum:

Using a text editor (like notepad) find the file /graffiti-admin/posts/write/default.aspx and find the element called <GlowEditor:Editor and change the attribute toolbarset from simple to “Default”.

Here is a screen shot of the Default Toolbar on the editor:

GCMS_DefaultEditor

 

Here is a screen shot of the Simple Toolbar on the editor:

GCMS_SimpleEditor

 

Of course we are still in Beta 2, so I am not sure if this change will work in release.

 Update:

This still works in GCMA version 1.0, and it appears to be case sensitive needing to be "Default" as the value.

  • It does still work in the v1.0 release, but the attribute value is case-sensitive. If you use "default" it will complain that there's no such toolset. Using "Default" as the value works fine.
    Also, you can just omit the ToolbarSet attribute, and it will default to the broader toolset for the editor.

    Wow! This makes the editor far more useable. Thanks for the tip – really brings the Graffiti backend up a notch!
