Hooks the user_can_richedit filter and returns false so that the visual editor is never used. Much more efficient, simple and reliable than the other disable visual editor plugin that requires you to delete the visual editor files from your install.


  1. Delete the previous easy-disable-visual-editor folder from the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Upload the new easy-disable-visual-editor folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory


  1. Just activate and enjoy! No configuration required.


  1. Upload the easy-disable-visual-editor folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
