Unable to Switch Between Visual & Text Edit Windows
By , for WP 4.5.2

God, I want this functionality (totally should be built in to WP), but with at least the current version, WP 4.5.2, with a page open to edit, I am unable to switch between the text & 'visual' editing windows. I am fine w/ editing in the code, but my clients?--No way!
This used to work great. Can't be sure when the problem cropped up.

Please, please, please fix! Love you to death if you do.

& WordPress, this should be part of the core! Not having control of the insertion of p & br tags is a nightmare!!!

Great plugin but needs updating
By , for WP 4.4.1

This plugin works perfectly for removing auto-formatting and faux paragraphs. The plugin hasn't been updating in a long time and since WordPress version 4.3 it breaks the toggle between visual and text views in the WYSIWYG. It seems the author is no longer responsive.

Works like a charm
By , for WP 4.4.1

I broke my head trying to figure out where did some of mine go after recent auto-update to 4.1.1. Didn't know about wordpress auto formatting, whatever the purpose of it it, I don't need it.

This plugin fixes it. Thanks!

Good plugin, worked up till 4.2.X
By , for WP 4.2.5

Good plugin, and it works great up until 4.2.X.

Unfortunately after upgrading to 4.3 the "Visual" tab is not accessible anymore. You have to disable the plugin to get the Visual tab mode to work again.

Please update to support 4.3!


Conflict with Visual Editor WP 4.3
By , for WP 4.3

Plugin interferes with the MCE editor with the most current WP update. The visual editor doesn't allow me to toggle between Text and Visual. 5 Stars when working.

I was delighted to find this as several plugins I've tried - to disable WordPress' very annoying autop - didn't work. However, I have a few hundred posts, and many of them lost their formatting once this was enabled. On a new site I might use this, but I don't want to go back and reformat all those posts.

Not Working for WP3.9.2

Switching from Visual Editor to HTML editor with this plugin introdues <p></p> on almost every line. Not working.

No longer works since WP 4.4.1
By , for WP 4.4.1

I worked very well with this plugin for a couple of years. I was initially a little bit confused because the English instructions are not very well written (for example the explanations under "batch processing"), but it worked perfectly in practice and allowed me to use HTML tags like
I was very grateful for this plugin but I have now had to deactivate it after upgrading to 4.4.1 as it was no longer working and resulted in disabling the visual view in in the WYSIWYG. That is really a pity.
