Ignore Code

Description

Wherever you have code you dont want the visual editor to touch use the [ignore_code] shortcode.
This version also supports the [insert_php] and <?php tags, though for the PHP tag you will have to
start the first line with <?php // > With latter two codes you will have to separately install
plugins to get the dynamic PHP insertion functionality.

Does this work with other plugins that call tiny_mce_before_init

I tested it along side TinyMCE Advanced and they both seemed to work. However calling this in functions.php
section of your theme may override the plugin’s functions.

It’s not working on long pieces of code

This is the first version so it may not work with extremely large sections of code.

My code is still coming out wrong after I update the post

Ignore Code only stops code from being modified on the client side in the visual editor. It does not do anything
on the server side. For that you need to do something like remove_filter(‘the_content’, ‘wpautop’);

My code is not showing up in the visual editor anymore

That’s the down side of this plugin, it causes the visual editor to ignore the code entirely so it won’t be
represented as anything on there.

My CSS is still getting mangled

You can use this plugin in conjunction with Preserved HTML Editor Markup Plus to work with even more code. However
read that plugin’s documentation closely as installing it can modify the way your website looks.

It killed my website!

Because this is the first version, it is highly recommended you have FTP and database access to your website in case
you need to uninstall this plugin manually if it crashed your website. This precaution is a good one to take for
every plugin.

Reviews

Just what I needed

This worked really well for me to preserve a HTML button I needed to insert. The downside is that anything between the codes don’t show up in the visual editor, but for single buttons that is not a big deal for me.

I see it hasn’t been tested with latest versions of WP. Will this be updated? It is well worth it.

Great plugin

Some of my button was messing up when I switch to visual tab but with this plugin my issue got resolved. Good job 🙂
