I have a wordpress site that uses both standard posts and custom posts.
I have no problem removing buttons from the WP editor when it's related to a custom post type. I just add this below to the CPT plugin and reference the textarea I'm using:
$content = get_post_meta($post->ID, 'mytextarea', true); $args = array( 'description_name' => 'mytextarea', 'teeny' => true, 'quicktags' => false, 'media_buttons' => false, 'tinymce' => array( 'toolbar1'=> 'bold,italic,underline,link,unlink,spellchecker', 'toolbar2' => '', 'toolbar3' => '' ) ); wp_editor( $content, 'mytextarea', $args );
So, I assume that, in order to do the same but this time for the edit post page, I have to go to the functions.php and do something similar. But I don't know what to type instead of the 'mytextarea' reference. I've looked for the html to find it out but whatever I try, it doesn't affect the wp editor on the edit post page. At best, it creates a new editor on top of it as this code creates a brand new editor before it customizes it.
So how can I target the already existing editor of the edit post page specifically in order to customize the buttons?
I tried many instances of hooks I found on the internet and over here but, for whatever reason, none worked so far. The editor remains stubbornly the same.
Any help would be appreciated.
