TinyMCE is a modular editor where the majority of features are enabled by loading plugins. External plugins give a mechanism for extending TinyMCE as required.
Plugins are bundled with TinyMCE in a location relative to the main editor script file, but TinyMCE also allows loading the plugins from a specified URL via the
The Tiny Editors integration also provides the ability to selectively load these external plugins based on the editor location. For example: Only loading a track-changes plugin on Wiki pages where multiple users can collaborate. The plugins can be selectively turned on in certain locations or simply loaded everywhere but certain locations.
Note: If multiple external plugins are provided their load order is browser dependent and may not be in the order listed.

off. If this setting is not provided then it will default to all locations.
off : is an optional list of strings containing editor locations that the plugin won't be loaded. If this setting is not provided then it will default to no locations.
