The Plugin Manager controls what buttons are displayed in the editor’s interface. It allows plugins to be published, unpublished and assigned to specific toolbars with the ability to setup user permissions. In addition to these features the Plugin Manager will allow you to drill down and edit each and every plugin that makes up the Ark Editor. The plugin allows for 3 global parameters for the dialog popup screens: Height, Title and Width and you will find further customisable parameters just like any standard Joomla extension!
To locate these settings please go to 'Components' > 'Ark Editor' which will take you to the Control Panel, as seen below:
Next click on the 'Plugin Manager' icon to view the 55 plus core plugins that make up the Ark Editor by default. This works exactly the same as the default Joomla Extension or Article Manager allowing the user to filter and edit plugins. To edit a plugin's setting either tick the 'check box' and click on 'Edit' (or click on the 'Title' of the plugin), as seen below:
You will notice that all plugins have 3 tabs labelled 'Details', 'Editor Option', and 'Basic'.
The 'Details' tab displays the basic details of the plugin such as the name and publish state and the icon path used in the toolbar, please see below:
The 'Editor Options' tab gives the user the ability to assign the plugin to 'toolbars' and 'user groups'.
Some plugins have some more advanced options which are found under the 'Basic' tab. This can differ from plugin to plugin depending upon its purpose.
But you don’t have to stop here as the editor's architecture is totally plugin based, so you can find a wealth of other customisable settings from plugin to plugin.
