WP Editor Widget

Description

This plugin adds a rich text widget where the content is edited using the standard WordPress visual editor which most users already are familiar with.
It uses the WP core function wp_editor() without adding a custom post type post for each widget making the widget quicker and simpler to edit.

Reviews

Does the job perfectly without any conflicts!

After using the Black Studio TinyMCE Widget for years I started looking for a similar one that would not have the same conflicts with other plugins.

I installed “WP edit widget” and it had no conflicts, worked out of the box and the widget content was not gone after deactiving the plugin ( something that frustrated me in Black Studio TinyMCE Widget.)

I had almost immediate respons to my support question, so I will start using this exellent plugin and hope the developer will update it as soon as it would start behaving badly in time.

Thanks!

Works Perfectly

I used it to add client instructions to an admin page. This makes adding screenshots and video quite easy.
