Great plugin, but need some work on menus
By , for WP 3.9.1

I an rating it 5 stars because id does exactly what it is described. I like editing pages in HTML style because this way I have full control. However, it would be nice if author can work on visual aspects of plugin menus so it could fit in newer WP installs better. Thank you.

Simple and good.

Works as it should. Thank!

One question. Is it posible without heavy PHP efforts to adapt this plugin for other HTML-source editing areas? First of all I'm talking about tools like Black Studio TinyMCE Widget or OH Add Script to Individual Pages Header Footer.

Hi Petr,

I am really grateful to you for sharing this great plugin. I think you are the only one who is offering all these features together.

I hope you will carry on supporting it for a long long time.


Best Regards,

THANK YOU for this plugin. I was copying the HTML to another editor so that I could see what I doing and this makes it so much easier for this hack to code.

Very Usefull
By , for WP 3.9.1

Makes editing HTML in WordPress suck a whole lot less. I used to copy and paste back and forth from ST2, but this is awesome.

Two things I'd love to see:

  • Emmet/Zen Coding Support! I know I can install a separate plugin for that but I'd much rather only have one.
  • CTL+S is awesome, but I'd find a preview shortcut to be even more useful.

Thanks for a great plugin!

Awesome plugin
By , for WP 3.9

Since I also use a syntax highlighter in all of my posts, I cannot use the visual editor. With this plugin, working in the HTML editor has become both nice and productive again.

What I also like about this plugin, is that it's actively maintained for over a long time now and that the author helps with support questions. Thanks Petr!

Very easy and gets the job done
By , for WP 3.8.1

This was the only plugin I could find that gets the job done. Syntax highlight works awesome and the ctrl-s for saving and cursor memory is a nice extra feature.
