    Where is unlink button in editor menu please? It disabled after update to 4.9. I need it to remove all links in the post.

    Any guide to bring it back?

    The unlink button was removed a few versions ago from the main toolbar, but if you click on a link in your editor you’ll get an option to remove that particular link.

    Before 4.9 I can still use unlink button. As said, sometime I need to remove a lot of links altogether so the unlink button is really convenient.

    Any code snippet to bring it back please?

    You could use something like TinyMCE Advanced.

    work perfectly. Thank you.

    Removing the unlink button from the main toolbar was a terrible mistake. I OFTEN have to remove all links from a large swathe of paragraphs of text, and it is CRAZY to force me to do each one individually, or ask me to install and configure a plugin on my many sites to get back this needed functionality. PLEASE, how can we convince WordPress to give us the unlink button back?

    Oh, and by the way, it was removed in 4.9. Earlier versions had it.

    Some way to solve this without using plugins

    No, to get this feature you will need to use a plugin.

    Although we understand a group of you will be using this feature, we are creating for the masses, and some times we need to make unpopular decisions like this to help create less confusion and a better experience for the majority of users. This is why we some times move functionality out and into stand alone plugins instead, such as in this case.

    @clorith, I don’t like to use a plugin for such a small needs, but I need that option too. You can reverse this useful option and can hide by default, the user can enable it from “Screen Option”, isn’t it convenient? Thanks

    Afraid not, if we were to do that we would be heading down a slippery slope of always having to extend the screen options, this isn’t what they are for.

    No more pressure, just keep what you think good for WordPress. I can use WP Edit or TinyMCE Advanced. Thanks for replying and confirm that it was not any issue in our website.
