FAQ

If I enter HTML tags in visual mode and click the button, most of the HTML tags disappear!

This is a known limitation which is caused by TinyMCE stripping out HTML tags which are not allowed according to its settings. A workaround is to do the editing in HTML mode (see usage).

I can’t get the TinyMCE (Rich Text) buttons to display!

Make sure that you have uploaded the entire contents of the wp-syntax-integration folder. If it still doesn’t work, drop me a line.
