Specifying the TinyMCE editor version deployed from Cloud

When deploying the TinyMCE editor via the Cloud, you’re able to specify the editor version via the provided for URL.

Our documented default for loading TinyMCE via the Cloud is:

<script src="http://cloud.tinymce.com/stable/tinymce.min.js?apiKey=your_API_key"></script>

The “stable” in this URL specifies the latest release of TinyMCE that has successfully completed the Ephox quality assurance testing process.

This value can be customised in order to load the version of TinyMCE that best suits your needs.

This value can be replaced with any of the following supported versions of TinyMCE: http://cloud.tinymce.com/versions/tiny.

Selecting specific version numbers

You can specify a Major version number, a Major.Minor version number or a Major.Minor.Patch version number. If the Minor or Patch versions numbers are not present, it will default to the latest Minor/pPatch version released.


Major version number (e.g. "4").

The following would load TinyMCE 4.latest.latest:

<script src="http://cloud.tinymce.com/4/tinymce.min.js?apiKey=your_API_key"></script>

Major.Minor version number (e.g. "4.3").

The following would load TinyMCE 4.3.latest:

<script src="http://cloud.tinymce.com/4.3/tinymce.min.js?apiKey=your_API_key"></script>

Major.Minor.Patch version number (e.g. "4.3.2").

The following would load TinyMCE 4.3.2:

<script src="http://cloud.tinymce.com/4.3.2/tinymce.min.js?apiKey=your_API_key"></script>

If you enter a version that doesn’t exist, you will get a HTTP 404 response.

"dev" and "stable" releases

Rather than specifying a specific TinyMCE version to load from the Cloud, you can choose to select from our automatically updated "dev" and "stable" release streams.

Updates to these streams will be automatic, providing you and your users with the latest TinyMCE version related to the criteria below as it’s released from Ephox.

"dev" release stream

This stream will deploy the absolute latest released TinyMCE version seen in the TinyMCE changelog.

The current version of TinyMCE available through the dev stream can be found at http://cloud.tinymce.com/dev/version.txt.

<script src="http://cloud.tinymce.com/dev/tinymce.min.js?apiKey=your_API_key"></script>

"stable" release stream

This stream will deploy the latest release of TinyMCE that has undergone release from the Ephox quality assurance testing cycle.

The current version of TinyMCE available through the stable stream can be found at http://cloud.tinymce.com/stable/version.txt.

<script src="http://cloud.tinymce.com/stable/tinymce.min.js?apiKey=your_API_key"></script>

Specifying the version of features/plugins deployed from the Cloud

Whether you’re deploying both the TinyMCE editor and premium plugins via the Cloud or deploying only premium plugins from the Cloud, you can use URL query parameters to specify the version of each premium plugin.
