WordPress’s visual content editor (TinyMCE) is one of many elements that contribute to the power of its content management capabilities. You can tailor this tool to be even more powerful both in its capabilities as they relate to your content. This presentation will cover adding custom stylesheets based on post type to the editor, modifying and removing buttons from the editor, and even creating your own custom buttons for the TinyMCE toolbar. It even covers brand new WordPress 3.3 techniques introduced with the new wp_editor function.
Intended for developers, this introduces new ideas and techniques to even the most experienced programmers, while also providing newer developers a good sense of how to use WordPress hooks in creative and powerful ways.
This was presented to developers at several WordCamps (WordPress conferences) around the country, notably the 2011 WordCamps for Chicago, Philly, and Orlando.
