Visual Editor Custom Buttons

Visual Editor Custom Buttons lets you add custom buttons to the WordPress Visual Editor.

Where do I set which row my buttons will appear?

That you can do under 'Settings' in the plugins menu.

I have created a button but it is acting very strangely when trying to use it in the Visual Editor. Nothing happens when clicking on it in the Visual Editor. When trying in the Text Editor the code shows but can disappear again when flipping back and forth between the Editors. Why is this?

This strange behavior with disappearing code may come up when you have pasted content to the Visual Editor from a pdf or word file and after that tries to use the Button. When pasting content directly from a pdf, unwanted invisible content may follow the pasted content messing up the Button code when trying to add it. The solution is to copy the pdf content to a simple text-editor (like Notepad) before copying it to the Visual Editor. When doing so, you clean the content before putting it into the Visual Editor.

About the Button CSS not visible in the Visual Editor (you canĀ“t se any effect of the button in the Visual Editor). Cleaning the Browsers Cache should do the trick.
