    xf 1.1.0

    due to chrome pasting issues (pasting colour-formatted text), i have elected to completely disable all colour functionality from tinyMCE.
    • pasted colour-formatting will be stripped when posted
    • colour-format button will not be visible
    • manually entered [color] tags will silently fail
    • php code colour-formatting is unaffected (syntax highlighting)
    • the effect is not retroactive
    in the php file: /library/XenForo/Html/Renderer/BbCode.php
    (line 51)
            'color'          => array('$this''handleCssColor'),
    comment it out:
    /*        'color'          => array('$this', 'handleCssColor'),*/
    (line 645)
    public function handleCssColor($text$color)
    comment it out:
    /*public function handleCssColor($text, $color)
            return "[COLOR=$color]{$text}[/COLOR]";
    in the file /library/XenForo/BbCode/Formatter/Base.php
    (line 296)
    'color' => array(
    'hasOption' => true,
    'optionRegex' => '/^(rgb\(\s*\d+%?\s*,\s*\d+%?\s*,\s*\d+%?\s*\)|#[a-f0-9]{6}|#[a-f0-9]{3}|[a-z]+)$/i',
    'replace' => array('<span style="color: %s">''</span>')
    replace with:
    'color' => array(
    'hasOption' => true,
    'optionRegex' => '/^(rgb\(\s*\d+%?\s*,\s*\d+%?\s*,\s*\d+%?\s*\)|#[a-f0-9]{6}|#[a-f0-9]{3}|[a-z]+)$/i',
    'replace' => array('<span>', '</span>')
    in the js file: /js/tinymce/themes/xenforo/editor_template.js
    (line 985)

    theme_xenforo_buttons1 'removeformat,|,fontselect,fontsizeselect,forecolor,xenforo_smilies,|,' undoRedoButtons,
    remove 'forecolor':
    theme_xenforo_buttons1 : 'removeformat,|,fontselect,fontsizeselect,xenforo_smilies,|,' + undoRedoButtons,

    updated the code for 1.02.
    this will now also prevent people from manually using color tags.

    updated for 1.1.0
    you may need a few hard refreshes of the browser before the colour button actually goes away.
