WordPress switches to visual editor by itself (and destroys my coding)

  • Hi,

    I’ve addressed this before but the problem remains: I have several pages that can only be edited in the text editor because of some custom coding etc. However, whenever I save a draft or do an update, WordPress automatically switches to the visual editor and like that messes up the entire layout of those pages.
    I’m in the process of creating a huge resources pages and I’ve already had to fix it over 10 times because WordPress keeps messing it up.
    It is not a page I can create in one go as I to wait for information coming in and it’s also not a page that I will not touch again once it’s published.
    I will need to keep updating it.

    It would be very nice if something could be done about this in a next update because it’s causing me so much time and frustration.

  • I second the motion.

    I didn’t realize this was happening at first and that caused me grief. It would have been nice to be warned before the code that I is written into the “Text” tab is blown away. But it would be better if there was an option to make the Text tab the master and have the Visual tab just be a preview of what the site will look like. Or, at least an option to disable the Visual Tab for a page altogether.

    You can temporarily disable the Visual Editor in your user profile while you are working on that specific page.

    Good tip, thanks!
    Still doesn’t solve the problem though.
