This plugin adds a new
Visual Editor widget type that allows you to insert rich text and media objects in your sidebars with no hassle. With Black Studio TinyMCE Widget you will be able to edit your widgets in a WYSIWYG manner using the native WordPress TinyMCE editor, just like you do in posts and pages. And if you are a developer you may still switch back and forth from Visual to HTML mode.
For years the default WordPress text widget has been very basic and it required HTML knowledge to add formatting and images/media to the text. This plugin was born in 2011 to overcome these limitations. After a long time, in June 2017, version 4.8 of WordPress finally introduced a new text widget that included the ability to manage text widgets with the visual editor. The new widget available in WordPress core could now be used as a basic replacement of Black Studio TinyMCE Widget, but the plugin still offers some additional features, so it remains a must-have for advanced users.
- Add rich text widgets to your sidebars and edit them using the TinyMCE visual editor
- Switch between Visual mode and HTML mode (including Quicktags toolbar)
- Insert images, videos, and other media from WordPress Media Library
- Insert links to existing WordPress pages/posts or external resources
- Support for shortcodes, smilies and embed in widget text (including preview)
- Support for Customizer with live preview and quick edit
- Support for widgets accessibility mode
- Compatible with multi-site (WordPress networks)
- Compatible with the most common multi-language plugins
- Compatible with Page Builder plugin by SiteOrigin
- Translations available in 20+ languages
These features are what makes this plugin better than the WordPress (4.8+) native widget:
- Full featured TinyMCE Visual Editor (the same you have for pages and posts)
- Wide text area for an enhanced editing experience
- Compatible with 3rd party TinyMCE customization plugins (TinyMCE Advanced, WP Edit, …)
- Support for distraction-free (fullscreen) editing mode
- Option to “Automatically add paragraphs” to widget text
