If you want overwrite the adaptors for any case in your project:

ADAPTOR_INPLACEEDIT = {'textarea': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorTinyMCEField',
                       'image': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorImageThumbnailField',
                       'fk': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorAutoCompleteForeingKeyField',
                       'm2mcomma': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorAutoCompleteManyToManyField'}

If you want, you can register these fields in your settings, with other keys:

ADAPTOR_INPLACEEDIT = {'auto_fk': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorAutoCompleteForeingKeyField',
                       'auto_m2m': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorAutoCompleteManyToManyField',
                       'image_thumb': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorImageThumbnailField',
                       'tiny': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorTinyMCEField',}

And after when you want use this specific adaptor you indicate it, e.g.:

{% inplace_edit "content.field_name" adaptor="tiny" %}

Because these fields are not in django-inplaceedit

  • They have dependece of the other eggs
  • They are a particular solution
  • Theese do not work immediately, you have to code them

AdaptorAutoCompleteForeingKeyField and AdaptorAutoCompleteManyToManyField

These fields are dependent of Django Ajax Select. You have to create a channel (lookup)

{% inplace_edit "content.field_name" adaptor="auto_fk", lookup="my_lookup" %}

For more info, visit the doc of ajax select

It is recomended overwrite the next templates:


This field is dependent of Sorl thumbnail. You only should indicate the size.

{% inplace_edit "content.field_name" adaptor="image_thumb", size="16x16" %}

It can help you, configure in your settings:


For more info, visit the doc of thumbnail


{% inplace_edit "content.field_name" adaptor="tiny" %}

It’s very recommended that in your base.html you include the CSS to normalize the first element of the iframe

<link rel="stylesheet" href="{{ STATIC_URL }}adaptor_tiny/css/block_normalize.css">


We use a tinyMCE (version 3.5.6) without changes, except we have added a inplaceedit plugin
