Client-proof Visual Editor

Description

Simple, option-less (yeah, that’s a feature), plugin to make TinyMCE – the WordPress Visual Editor – easier for clients and n00bs. It removes a bunch of TinyMCE features that could potentially be used by inexperienced clients to screw-up the theme developers hard work! It also makes TinyMCE remove the nasty formatting when you paste content directly in it – so, there is no need to use the “paste from Word” or “paste from text” buttons!

Thanks to José Fontainhas for testing and SVN help and Tiago Rodrigues for help with TinyMCE “paste” issues.

FAQ

What buttons are kept in the Editor?
  • Strong
  • Emphasis
  • Strike Through
  • Format (h2, h3, h4, Paragraph, Code)
  • Unordered Lists
  • Ordered Lists
  • Blockquote
  • Link Buttons
  • Horizontal Line
  • More Tag
  • Full Screen mode
Where are the plugin options?

This plugin has no options. That is a feature! Just activate it and enjoy the simplicity.

Does it do anything else?

When you paste text directly into the visual editor, all formatting gets removed automagically! There’s no need to teach clients to use the “Paste as Text” or “Paste from Word” buttons (which I always found hard to get people to remember using them).

Reviews

Excellent plugin!

This is one of my new favourite plugins. Gone are the days of idiots sticking hideous colour schemes and weird unwanted code into pages via the visual editor 🙂

Great plugin

Really nice, simple and effective! Often i need to tell clients not to touch some of the things, but this is really make it easier. Good job on this one and I hope, that you gonna update this for every new version of WP :>
