Upgrade ColdFusion FileManager plugin to TinyMCE 5
February 27th 2021

Recently we have chosen to upgrade our CMS systems to utilize the latest version of the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor (v5).

Also, and this part is very important - the revealing of the whole text should be animated (sort of the .slideDown() effect).
