Support » Plugin: tinyWYM Editor » Please add support for more semantic tags

  • Resolved lowemo


    If I manually insert “semantic” HTML tags, like

    <aside >


    <article >


    <header >

    , or

    <footer >

    , they are not displayed in the tinyWYM editor.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I’m happy to include those tags in the next update (hopefully coming soon) but just know that the WordPress editor doesn’t play all that nice with those tags since it isn’t really meant for that sort of content. Tags like <article>, <footer>, etc. belong in the theme files not inside a post or page. Just something to consider.

    New semantic tags are now available. Thanks.

    That’s awesome, thank you very much. I love this editor, but it was eating my <aside> tags.

    And you’re right that normally it would be unusual to have multiple areas of a post marked as separate <article> elements. But it’s not actually incorrect. So I’m sure there will be some users who’ll be happy to find those available (and I may yet, too). And each <article> or <section> can have its own <header> and <footer> elements. These are also not necessarily about the header or footer of the page (at least not according to my understanding, though they’re clearly most commonly used in a template).

    I’m looking forward to being able to see my <asides> without going to the plain text editor. 🙂
