I keep reading you select the wysiwyg filter in configuration->content authoring-> text formats but it doesn't exist for me.

How can I get that filter to appear in list?

I have the wysiwyg module correctly installed and enabled.

  • which editor are you using with WYSIWYG module?

I recommend you to do the following:

  • first add new text format from admin/config/content/formats
  • then check the correct options for your new custom text format
  • now go to wysiwyg configuration page admin/config/content/wysiwyg
  • you should see your new custom text format along with dropdown list to choose TinyMCE editor
  • make sure to select TinyMCE editor and click save

Note: in order for you to see/select different text format you need to have more than one text format (other than Plain text)

  • Actually, I had high hopes this would work but having done it I am still getting no changes to text in output.

  • I can see my text formats and I can select tinymce for each but I cannot choose wysiwyg for the filter even though I can configure wysiwyg profiles and now followed a stanford tutorial but still text buttons are not working.

    I am sorry to have been so unclear so have set up a new question because I think your answer is good considering my initial question. So I will leave this particular one as is and follow my next question.
