More options to the editor
Posted by Leonid Mamchenkov on June 16, 2007
Have you ever wanted to have more options in the WordPress editor? WordPress.com hosted blogs already have an extra button, which opens more options, but standalone blogs – not yet. Not to worry! Press Alt+Shift+V while looking at the editor, and you’ll see more buttons unfold.
All sorts of goodies are hidden there – underlines text, more formatting options for headings, paragraphs, and preformatte text, text color, justified alignment, etc. For me personally, the most important button which I have hard times living without is “Paste as Plain Text”. It comes handy when using WordPress’ rich text editor and pasting content from ugly formatted web sites.
Update: If you want to have even more options and buttons, check this Advanced TinyMCE Editor plugin. Its author warns of compatibility problems with other plugins though.
