Post Editor Buttons Fork

This plugin allows you add your own buttons to the post editor's TEXT mode toolbar.

I don't see the buttons I've created. Where are they?

This plugin creates buttons for the TEXT editor only.

Can I put classes/styles or other attributes inside the tag?

Yes, but you must use single quotes. For example, this will work:

<h2 style='color:#ff0;'>

But this will not:

<h3 class="clear">

As of version 2.1, " will be replaced with ' automatically As of version 2.3, quote marks should be preserved

Why are my inline styles are being removed?

Some styles are removed by WordPress while others aren't. For example, this will work:

<span style='color:red;'>

But this will not:

<span style='display:none;'>

These styles are being removed when the provided tags are passed through one of WordPress's sanitation filters.

Why isn't this tag/attribute being saved?

When you save a custom button, the before/after pieces are filtered. No point in creating a button that adds something that'll only be removed when you save a post, right?

To allow additional tags, you'll need to add some code. (I recommend add it to your functions.php file so it will be preserved if you update the plugin).

Here's how to allow the video tag

add_filter( 'admin_init', 'allowed_tags' );
function allowed_tags() {
    global $allowedposttags;
    $allowedposttags['video'] = array();

To add more attributes (in this case, src, type, poster):

add_filter( 'admin_init', 'allowed_tags' );
function allowed_tags() {
global $allowedposttags;
    $allowedposttags['video']['src'] = array();
    $allowedposttags['video']['type'] = array();
    $allowedposttags['video']['poster'] = array();
