New Plugin: MRW Web Design Simple TinyMCE

Last night, I launched a new free WordPress plugin in the repository: MRW Web Design Simple TinyMCE. The plugin takes the rather-cluttered WordPress text editor ((TinyMCE is the name of the specific text editor WordPress uses. It’s probably the most common rich text editor on the web.)) , cleans up the buttons into a single row of only the most useful ones, and provides a couple handy features for developers to add custom styles to text via the editor.

I’ve used this plugin on client sites for a couple years —and my own! I’m using it right now, in fact—so it’s something I believe in and know works well.

Here’s the normal WordPress editor without the plugin:

Here’s the cleaned up editor after you’ve activated the plugin:

There’s actually a whole philosophy behind the choices I made regarding buttons, but I’ll save that for another post. What I can say for sure is that every site I build comes with this plugin turned on and people don’t miss the buttons that are removed.
