I've been looking for a way to add a button to wrap text in for the WYSIWYG editor in Wordpress 3.3.1.

I tried this:

function enable_more_buttons($buttons) {
 $buttons[] = 'code';
 return $buttons;
}
add_filter("mce_buttons_3", "enable_more_buttons");

But that did not work as expected. It did display a button, but it brings up a popup window to edit the HTML.

In addition to it would be nice to have and .

  • With TinyMCE, "code" refers to the markup of the textbox itself. It's supposed to launch a popup window to edit the HTML. You need a way to add a custom button, because there isn't a baked-in "preformatted" feature. I recommend asking on Stack Overflow instead, because this is TinyMCE-related, not WordPress-related, and will be closed as off-topic soon enough. – EAMann Jan 31 '12 at 22:51

  • Mark the question as answered please. – fuxia Feb 6 '12 at 11:26
  • Done! Thanks for reminding me. It wouldn't let me mark it when I first posted. Had to wait 24 hours - forgot. – thomthom Feb 6 '12 at 13:25
  • TinyMCE Code Button is another plugin that does the same thing. (Neither plugin seems to be actively maintained, so there's a risk that one or the other might disappear from the plugin repository at some point.) – s3cur3 Dec 19 '18 at 17:19
