Is there any way to determine whether a post was last edited using the Visual or HTML editor? Perhaps by hooking into an action?

1 Answer 1


wp_default_editor(); will tell you the default editor - the last editor used. You can hook into the update/save post action and store this for the current post in the options array or somewhere similar. It's used in wp-includes/class-wp-editor.php to define the default editor when loading TinyMCE in the post editor.
