More font colours plugin for Atto updated for Moodle 2.9 #MoodleWorld

More font colours plugin for Atto text editor has been updated to a new version to support Moodle 2.9.

This plugin is intended as a replacement of the core atto_fontcolor plugin, allowing the Moodle administrator to freely define a set of colors that can be used by users. If allowed by the administrator, users can also use a color picker to chose any possible color.


  • You can install the plugin as usual in Your-Moodle-Directory/lib/editor/atto/plugins and visiting the Site Administration > Notifications Page to complete the installation.
  • Then visit Site Administration > Plugins > Atto > More font colors to define the colors you want your users to be able to chose from. As a default, the same colors as the core atto_fontcolor colors are defined.
  • Finally, enable the plugin by adding ‘morefontcolors‘ (without the quotes) in the Atto toolbar settings.
