Support » Plugin: Better File Editor » Hook into Page/Post HTML Editor?

    For security reasons, I disable the theme and plugin editor for most of my client work. However, its far more likely for a customer to use the html editor within a post or page due to it being accessible to only that page content. Less is at risk if simply one page is altered unintentionally versus the entire site.

    I guess what I’m asking is there any way we can get your plugin hooked into the article HTML editor too? It would be a much fuller solution then and certainly make editing code there 10x cleaner when I can use the same Monakai theme I use in Sublime Text 3.

    Hooking into the HTML page editor is significantly more difficult as WordPress does all sorts of special operations on the content of those editors. I know there’s other plugins that try to tackle that, but few do so reliably without issues during the core conversion of KSES stripping, and content conversions when switching editors from WYSIWYG to text and back.

    I’m personally not interested in attempting this within the same plugin (and the name of this plugin doesn’t fit that bill anyway), but if anyone wants to fork this plugin into a separate one that strictly handles the post/page/HTML editors, that would probably be far more useful, and I certainly wouldn’t have a problem with that.

    P.S. Monokai is my favorite scheme too. 🙂

    Yeah I figured that much. I was just looking through Ace Editor’s configurations earlier and wondering if it was even worth the effort.

    I guess I’ll keep looking. Thanks for the fast response. *high five* for Monakai 🙂

    Yeah, I think we’d also have to write a new dedicated syntax file for the post editor too so it knew how to handle things like shortcodes without thinking it was invalid HTML or something. It’s certainly something I’ve wanted too, but not enough to invest the time to do it. 🙂
