To insert a character, select the Ω icon on the toolbar. The choose a character from the popup that appears and insert it into your text.


<!DOCTYPE html>
        <meta charset="utf-8">

        <!-- css -->
        <link rel="stylesheet" href="/your-folder/redactor.css" />
        <!-- element -->
        <textarea id="entry">...</textarea>

        <!-- js -->
        <script src="/your-folder/redactor.js"></script>
        <script src="/your-folder/plugins/specialchars/specialchars.js"></script>

        <!-- call -->
        Redactor('#entry', {
            plugins: ['specialchars']


The symbols displayed in the plugin's popup are determined by an array specified within the plugin's settings. You can customize this set by defining your own array, as demonstrated below:

Redactor('#entry', {
    plugins: ['specialchars'],
    specialchars: {
        items: ['&lsquo;', '&rsquo;', '&ldquo;', '&rdquo;', '&ndash;', '&mdash;']

By default, the plugin adds its button to the toolbar and context bar. To remove it from the context bar, disable the context setting:

Redactor('#entry', {
    plugins: ['specialchars'],
    specialchars: {
        context: false
