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 lacked functionalities and it required HTML knowledge, this plugin was born to overcome these limitations. The recent releases of WordPress (starting from version 4.8 released in June 2017), finally included a native visual text widget, but it’s pretty minimal and it doesn’t provide all the features available with Black Studio TinyMCE Widget, which still remains a must-have for advanced users.
