Customized WYSIWYG Editor Page Widths

Enforces a maximum page width per post type in the WYSIWYG Visual editor so content will wrap according to the design of the front end.

The current admin WYSIWYG editor will expand to the size of your monitor. On modern monitors that can be very wide and as a result your content will stretch out beyond the normal bounds. The current solution is to minimize your window until the editor is about the right size. But depending on the width of other elements and sections this can create an unusable workspace in the admin section.

This plugin adds the ability to enforce a maximum page width in the WYSIWYG editor for a more realistic content window that matches your blog/site layout. Widths, in pixels, are configurable per each custom post type that supports an editor. So you can define a max width for blog posts, pages, content molecules (see: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/content-molecules/) along with any other registered custom post type from any other plugin. Or you can leave them blank to have a full width editor in the admin interface.

This gives you or your content creators a realistic view of how the text will wrap on the front end of your website. This improves the readability of your content by ensuring your paragraphs are not giant blocks of text.

This plugin will only affect the WYSIWYG Visual Tab. Your HTML source code will always use the full available screen real estate. It also uses proper CSS inclusion for page width styles for plugins that enable multiple stylesheet joining and compression meaning your server won't make another costly request just for this resource.
