Hello,

I have hidden all tools from the visual editor, but I didn't realize that this does not solve the problem when a user paste html content form another editor (eg. form word).

In that case all the headers as well as some formatting are being kept upon saving.

How can I have a simple textarea which only converts hyperlinks in clickable URLs but strips out all the formatting and html code from the text?

 

Thank you

Hi @nican,

You should click on the {;} button and paste Word content in the pop-up window. There is no way to disable the rich editor.

@robert do you plan to add this feature in the future?
Being able to use a simple textarea would be a great addon.

I also looked into the possibility of limiting the tiny mce visual editor features depending on the user role, but I can't find any plugin to do this... it seems this is an area of wordpress which still is uncovered.

 

thanks
