In your


If you want to overwrite the adaptors for all cases in your project:

ADAPTOR_INPLACEEDIT = {'textarea': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorTinyMCEField',
                       #'textarea': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorSimpleTinyMCEField',
                       '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 different 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',
                       'tiny_simple': 'inplaceeditform_extra_fields.fields.AdaptorSimpleTinyMCEField'}

And after that, to want use a specific adaptor you can pass it to the templatetag, e.g.:

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

Why these fields are not in django-inplaceedit?

  • They depend on the other eggs
  • They are a specific solution
  • These do not work immediately, you have to code them

AdaptorAutoCompleteForeingKeyField and AdaptorAutoCompleteManyToManyField

These fields depend on django-ajax-selects (1.2.5). 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 django-ajax-selects

It is recomended you overwrite the following templates:


This field depends on sorl-thumbnail (11.12). You just need to specify the thumb 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 sorl-thumbnail

AdaptorTinyMCEField and AdaptorSimpleTinyMCEField

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


We use tinyMCE 4.0 without changes (from django-inplaceedit-extra-fields==0.3.0), if you want to use another version (4.X) of tinyMCE set INPLACE_TINYMCE_JS in your settings.

INPLACE_TINYMCE_JS = '/my/path/of/tinyMCE'

If you want to use a tinyMCE 3.X, please use django-inplaceedit-extra-fields==0.2.4
