Rich Text Excerpts

A WordPress plugin which swaps out the textarea used for excerpts with a TinyMCE editor instance.

1.3.1

  • added extra CSS styles to the editor, incorporated from this forum post
  • re-built translations to reflect new admin options, and incorporated the changes suggested by Johan Pirlouit in this forum post
  • started to use wp_kses_decode_entities in addition to html_entity_decode on content before it is displayed in the editor to stop the behaviour described in this forum post

1.3

  • made register_plugin_options() static (bugfix)
  • added option to use a metabox instead of placing the excerpt statically using edit_form_advanced or edit_page_form.

1.2.1

  • removed a debugging setting from the plugin which set the textarea_rows to 20. Setting textarea_rows in wp_editor() doesn't appear to have any effect anyway
  • tidied up javascript and added error checking for selection of post types
  • additional error checking in the validation routine

1.2

  • Added translations (no idea whether these work though!)
  • Fixed some bugs in plugin options saving/retrieval
  • Fixed post type support
  • Put the editor in a container (suggestion from Chris Van Patten)
  • changed screenshot

1.1

  • Addition of plugin options page to WordPress Admin area, giving users the ability to configure the operation of the plugin
  • Fixed minor bug relating to editor display which was triggered in some circumstances

1.0

  • WordPress submission after initial development on bitbucket.
