WP Super Edit 2.0 has finally been released!

It should probably also be known as the “Gustav ate my wallet” release. If you don’t know, WP Super Edit is a WordPress plugin designed to manage and add features to the TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor used by WordPress.

This is a complete rewrite of WP Super Edit for WordPress 2.6 or higher that I have been working on for months! It has been tested using WordPress 2.6 and 2.7 on PHP4 and PHP5 installations. I won’t go into too much detail about this release here. If you what to know more, please visit the WP Super Edit Project where you will find more information and detailed documentation.

New features for this release include:

  • Different modes for editor settings; One editor setting for all users, role based editor settings, and individual user editor settings.
  • Upgraded plugins for the 3.x version of TinyMCE.
  • Complete rewrite of WP Super Edit for stability and usability. All settings are now stored in the database, but most of the features of the original plugin remain.

Please leave comments here about issues or kudos for this version of WP Super Edit. If you want help out in other ways, please consider making a donation or other contribution. I did not suffer major damage from hurricanes Gustav and Ike so far, but evacuation costs and minor damages have put a major delay in my need to replace my aging Powerbook G4.

Most of all, have fun! 😛

Update! – WP Super Edit 2.0.3 It’s been a really bumpy update! Some silly issues with roles and individual user settings fixed! Updates to fix javascipt errors with superemotions and superclass plugins.

Update! – WP Super Edit 2.0.4 Just trying to catch the changes as they happen for WordPress 2.7. Some proper methods to add the option pages. Killed the nag notice for user editor options and renamed per-user options menu and title to Visual Editor Options.

Update! – WP Super Edit 2.0.5 Another update for WordPress 2.7. I also made some minor changes to make WP Super Edit fail a little nicer if there are problems.

Update! – WP Super Edit 2.0.6 Joy! Removed extra line endings in php files. Possible issue noted by George Coghill.

  1. Thanks for this great plug-in. Primarily I was hoping your plug-in would correct the inconsistent insertions and omissions of tags and/or tags while using the TinyMCE HTML WYSIWYG editor. I know, I know, just turn the WYSIWYG editor off right? Well, I’m using WordPress 2.6.2 as a CMS so my clients need to use it to add/edit/delete content.

    Anyway long story short, after installing and activating the plug-in, everything shows up but in the “Arrange Editor Buttons” page, the individual buttons will not drag and drop either in IE7 or FF3+. Am I missing something? Is there another way of rearranging the buttons?

    http://Dragontheory.com/wall2.0c is the dev site.

    One other question… can I update TinyMCE itself (the default TinyMCE that comes with WordPress 2.6.2 is dated) while using this plug-in or does this plug-in only work with certain versions of TinyMCE?

    The following plug-ins are also installed (not sure if it makes a difference):
    Akismet
    Custom Fonts
    Dashboard Editor
    Exec-PHP
    Improved Include Page
    Ozh’ Admin Drop Down Menu
    pb-embedFlash
    Role Manager
    Woopra
    Wordpress Automatic Upgrade
    WordPress Database Backup
    WP-CMS Post Control
    Wp-UnitPNGfix

    Thanks again for your time and effort.

  2. There always seems to be issues with conflicting javascript in WordPress plugins. Some plugin authors include unnecessary javascript in administration panels that don’t need it. It can also be bad permissions or corrupted javascript files.

    Please feel free to contact me so you can send the source code for
    the broken administration panel, or let me know any javascript error that you may find in your browser. If you send me a note with your e-mail address using the Contact form. I’ll reply with some instructions for sending me an e-mail with a copy of your source code.

    I am thinking about adding a manual button mode that would allow you type in the button names separated by commas if the interface just doesn’t seem to work.

  3. installed wp super edit 2.0 on wp 2.6.2 today.

    Everything appears to work fine, plugin activated, settings came up, can edit buttons with drag and drop etc etc etc.

    But there is NO CHANGE on the editor. No new buttons. Nothing.

    Help?

  4. Jess emailed me in re that, and walked me through the details of how to overcome Yahoo’s oddball caching of the javascript.

    All good now.

    One huge atta-boy for Jess.

  5. Just to add to Rick’s comment. It seems that some funky caching at the ISP or hosting provider can keep WordPress from updating the cached javascript files.

    To fix this you may have to force the reset by loading the TinyMCE script directly from your browser. It is usually located at /wp-includes/js/tinymce/tiny_mce_config.php.
