Hey all,

I’m adding shortcode buttons to the WP post editor but I’m having trouble working out how to add them in HTML mode.

I’m adding them in visual mode with this line..

if ( get_user_option(‘rich_editing’) == ‘true’ )

I’m assuming I can just replace ‘rich_editing’ with something else but I can’t guess what that is exactly.

Thanks for any help!

I believe they are two separate things. For the visual editor you’re adding TinyMCE buttons. For the HTML editor you’re adding “quick tags”.

It looks like it’s pretty simple to extend according to this post: http://scribu.net/wordpress/right-way-to-add-custom-quicktags.html

Otherwise, dissecting this plugin might help http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-editor-buttons/screenshots/
