I'm trying to get TinyMCE + WYSIWYG + D7 to produce HTML like this...


According to my tests, TinyMCE can do this easily out of the box. Just create the list. Type some text, highlight Foo and select the Heading 2 format.

However, when I perform the same actions in Drupal, TinyMCE will change the entire contents of the <li> to be the selected format... producing markup like this...


I expect this is because Drupal is setting the valid_children or valid_elements properties of TinyMCE but I dont see how to affect them in the configuration page.

How do I change Drupals config for these? How do I get the editor to produce the markup that I want?

  • Assuming you're talking about WYSIWYG+TinyMCE in Drupal 7...the only mention of valid_children or valid_elements is in wysiwyg/editors/tinymce.inc. You can probably make your changes there, I don't see any alter hooks provided by WYSIWYG

  • Yes. Sorry for the ambiguity. I will add that to the question.
