In this article, we will show you how to use visual editor to create widgets in WordPress.

That’s not the problem I’m having. The problem I’m having is that it completely changes my coding. While the result is the same on the webpage, the coding completely changes when I go from text to visual, which you have to do when you save it. The point is, I want complete control over the widget area in a box that should not be rich text or visual. I have rectified the issue by doing the downgrade on WP and updating the database. All is back to normal. I won’t update until this issue is corrected (hopefully) in the next release. But thank you for the work around.

This plugin adds a new Visual Editor widget type that allows you to insert rich text and media objects in your sidebars with no hassle. The default WordPress text widget lacks of functionalities and it requires HTML knowledge, this plugin was born to overcome these limitations. With Black Studio TinyMCE Widget you will be able to edit your widgets in a WYSIWYG manner using the native WordPress TinyMCE editor, just like you do in posts and pages. And if you are a developer you may still switch back and forth from Visual to HTML mode.

To create a hyperlink from the text editor, highlight the word or words you would like to link from and click the Create or Edit Link icon in the toolbar. A popup dialogue box will appear asking for you to first enter the page URL you would like to link to. Simply paste in or type the web address you would like your visitors to be redirected to when clicking the link. The title can be used to give more information about the link when it is hovered over.

The previous version with the option “treat the “change-line” as paragraph”, the option “auto generate paragraphs” was an infringement to concepts but it was an option, then the code (syntax is generally tested by other ways) was always preserved when the option was not choosen.
Generally if the basic html rule were used into the html code the result using this option was an invalid code able to crash any site, server and browser if the content was not a very simple text.
