This is to implement step 1 as per sun's comment #164 of #746524-164: No Font Styles for CKeditor.

A definitive solution of #746524: No Font Styles for CKeditor seems to be hanging on editor specific code being brought into the wysiwyg_profile_form function in the file. This patch introduces the "settings form callback" mechanism that will allow the above mentioned issue to be solved in a way that is acceptable for the maintainers.

Marking critical as the other issue is already running for over 2 years and has more than 120 followers

Thank you for taking this on properly! :)

Let's add short descriptions for these params. or also system.api.php in Drupal core contain some standard/default descriptions for them, which we can copy.

This should rather go into the API documentation in wysiwyg.api.php. We can do an actual implementation for ckeditor in the issue you mentioned.

The cufa() is not necessary here. Just invoke the defined callback function directly and pass $form and $form_state as arguments.

Note that you need to remove the & from the arguments, since pass-by-reference is deprecated and throws a PHP warning. Arguments can only be taken by reference, but not passed by reference.

Aside from these issues, this looks very good to me.

Thanks for your reaction. Will make the changes later, but have some questions regarding your remarks:

- function_exists() accepts NULL as parameter and returns FALSE without any warning (and default callback is set to NULL). So I removed the test on isset/!empty (it was there before I did some tests). But I will be happy to reintroduce it for clarity.
- I was looking for a place to document the function, but as wysiwyg.api.php does not document hook_editor(), I could not find the correct place to do so!?
- cuf() cannot be used when arguments are taken by reference and I never seen the $func() syntax on variable function invocations in Drupal code. That is why I used cufa(). I am not sure though on the necessity of using & in the array creation. would need to test that.

New patch:
- removed empty "implementation" from ckeditor
- no documentation, as there is no place to document hook_editor array entries (wywiwyg.api.php focuses on plugins)
- removed cufa() as per #1. May be difficult to read if you are not used to this syntax, but within an if that does a function_exists(0 it should not be too hard.
- no condition to check !empty first: not needed (as per #2)
- when writing a patch for the other issue, I will document the parameters as per #1

Sorry, that's not what I meant.

Anyway, to unblock the other issue, I've committed attached patch.

Thanks for reporting, reviewing, and testing! Committed to 7.x-2.x.

A new development snapshot will be available within the next 12 hours. This improvement will be available in the next official release.

If we want/need to backport this to D6, feel free to re-open this issue.

OK, I will go write a patch for the other issue. I saw you prefer to fail very visibly instead of silently (not checking if the function exists, just calling it). That is normally indeed better and the function should just exists if you define it in a hook.

Quick follow-up, since I didn't like the duplication of retrieving contextual values that actually already exist at all.

I have also been thinking about whether to use this format or go for similarity with hook_form_alter list. Differences are minor, so pick your preferred one.

Committed and pushed to all 2.x branches.

I like not having to fetch those context objects again, but we could also have baked them into $form_state to keep the function signature simpler. Or am I missing something?

LOL! You're absolutely right. I can't believe I did this ;)

Also, sorry for the quick commit - I assumed this would be simple enough, but alas... ;)

Any objections? :)
