Removing Items From The Format Menu In JCE For Joomla 1.5

I’ve been putting the finishing touches on a new Joomla 1.5 install. I decided to switch from the default TinyMCE text editor and start using the JCE one instead. After customising the menu I reached my final task; removing most of the options in the Format drop down box. That drop down lets you pick Paragraph, Heading 1, Heading 2 and so on. After reading all the docs, scouring both the JCE and TinyMCE forums, rooting through the MySQL database, general searching and then performing the usual techy head2desk incantations I couldn’t find the answer. In my searches I found alot of other people asking the same question but with no answer. Turns out it’s easy.

Open up /plugins/editors/jce.php and find this line (#86 for me):

$param['theme_advanced_blockformats'] = "p,div,h1,h2,h3,h4,h5,h6,blockquote,dt,dd,code,samp";

Just remove the ones you don’t want and save the file. Here’s my pruned version:

$param['theme_advanced_blockformats'] = "p,h1,h2,h3,h4";

Adding extra ones is another matter which luckily I don’t have to worry about 😉
