Don't Break The Code

Description

The idea for this plugin came from a presentation at WordCamp Philly
2011.

Code from these other plugins has served as reference and inspiration, and was sometimes borrowed from:

https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/disable-visual-editor-wysiwyg/
https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/raw-html/

Plans:

  • Hide the disable option from non-admins.
  • Possibly remove certain filters from the the_content filter, similar to the Raw HTML or Preserved HTML Editor Markup plugins.

Installation

  1. Upload the dont-break-the-code directory to the /wp-content/plugins/
    directory of your site.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  3. Look for the visual editor checkbox in the Screen Options of the edit
    post page.

.1

  • Initial Version. Pulled code from “Disable the Visual Editor WYSIWYG” (https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/disable-visual-editor-wysiwyg/) and rewrote a few parts pased on my preferences for doing jQuery and which hook to use to determine we’re on the edit post page.
