I'm usually a scrooge and never write reviews even after finding something good. But this plugin is SO good that I had to write my first wordpress plugin review.
There are so many threads and forum discussions online spanning a good 5+ years complaining about the problem that this plugin solves----messed up HTML after switching to Visual mode and back. Almost all of them point to TinyMCE Advanced to solve the problem. I'm not sure why---it didn't solve the problem for me.
But this... THIS... solves it.
Only thing I can't believe is how this plugin has been around for quite a while but has less than 30k downloads.
Thank you Mr. MarcusPope...!
As more of my sites now have content editors, this plugin is invaluable.
Thank you again!
This plugin should be in the WordPress core. Never has that statement been so true.
For 5+ years I've been amazed at the continual frustration people have with TinyMCE. And especially considering WP is not just for blogging anymore and hasn't been for years now this plugin is essential for any developer. Thank you so much!!! And please keep updating this plugin when/if need be.
Ok so, I created a functions.php child in the folder of my graphene theme. Inside I put this:
Then I downloaded installed and activated this plugin.
Now all manual breaks and java scripts stopped screwing up while switching between html view and visual view in wordpress.
So, great! Excellent. A dream come true.
I'm just a little worried about this text:
IMPORTANT: Please read the installation instructions carefully. If you have existing content it will not render properly after activating this plugin until you use the Fix It Tools.
I haven't done that, can't find these so called "Fix It Tools", and there is no documentation on them. Not on the wordpress plugin site, neither on the developers site. So I dunno what that remark is all about?
Zillion thanks. Brilliant solution :)
... and that's it !!!
Just registered so that I could say a HUGE thank you.
I'm no coder and need to use visual editor. Sometimes I have to put in my own html and it stuffed up big time every time I switched between visual and text.
Spent a few minutes just switching the tabs and html is still the same.
Problem solvered :D Thank you
I am using your plugin as well as PS Disable Auto Formatting on my site.
The issue that I am facing is that after saving the post/page it adds a P tag or br tag(depending on the setting from Settings > Writing) for each new line.
Can you please let me know if I need to user PS Disable Auto Formatting if I am using your plugin, that plugin is used to preserve br and p tags.
First of all: A TRILLION THANKS!!
I have been three days debugging the codes of the editor to try to find out where the wpautop from the client side was working.
You have spared me another three days for sure!!
From now on this plugin will be on my "Super Plugins" list.
Please continue making these kinds if plugins. I will be there to download them :)
A must have plugin -saved a lot of hassle and work!
