    To add the buttons, you need to have some coding knowledge. There are plenty tutorials about how to do that. They all work in the backend, but you’ve to bring them in frontend too.

    sure I know some coding knowledge. The only thing i’m struggling with is were do i find the code that is calling the tinymce?

    This plugin is a nice and great plugin though, but am also having the same
    problem here. I cant see the Upload/Insert button using chrome and explorer so I want to find out if there is a way to fix this or a plugin that work in hand to fix tinymce or more buttons at the text area in order to make users using chrome and explorer to be able to upload images media files.

    @ Dannielokk I found a way to add more button to the rich text editor. I’m not sure if this is the right way to do it but.

    go to wp-content/plugins/wp-user-frontend/wpuf-add-post.php. find this

    wp_editor( ”, ‘new-post-desc’, array(‘textarea_name’ => ‘wpuf_post_content’, ‘teeny’ => true, ‘textarea_rows’ => 8) );

    and change ‘teeny’ => true to ‘teeny’ => false

    that’s it. I’m not sure if it is safe. so do this at your own risk :). also if you want to add an insert image button or video. you can do that with ultimate tinymce. if you want to add the upload media button from the backend to plain members you need to add the plugin capsman. But I don’t recommend that cause you can easily give some people permissions that they can abuse, I suggest using the attachments for that and make it so that the thumbnail gets inserted into a post.

    I assume it’s the same for edit post also.

    I hope this will help you out.

    p.s. this will add all the buttons from the backend into this plugin I believe.

    woaw creaturis! is working like magic thanks alot, infact you killed part of my problem for me now. Hoping to clear the rest.

    any new ideas, or maybe an official reply on creaturis method?

    Try the github, it has the option to change the editor to normal/tiny/full textarea.

    Thanks for replying Tareq, unfortunately i don’t see how that could help me; i simply want to add(remove) more buttons, like H2 tag etc… 🙁

    do you want this full editor? Then you’ve to select “Rich Text (full)” editor. If you want more additional buttons to add/remove, there are plenty tutorials out there. You’ve to do it yourself.

    do you want this full editor?

    not necessarily. i just want to add custom buttons.

    I’ve set Rich Text Editor in frontend’s settings from beginning, and i have Super Edit Plus plugin, which provides ability to manage editor’s buttons.

    But that didn’t worked with frontend 🙁

    Perhaps it’s the Super Edit’s fault… then maybe you can advise another plugin that you sure will work with frontend.

    Thank you for you time Tareq.



    Hi guys,

    You can install the TinyMCE Advanced plugin where you can choose what buttons you want to add to the editor & in the “WP User Frontend” settings page, choose the “Rich Text (full)” option for editor.
