#10785 closed feature request (invalid)

Allow editor to be disabled on individual posts

The TinyMCE editor is known for destroying some tags and HTML structures. Please allow us to disable the editor on a per-post or -page basis where we need permanent exemption from editor use.

A good example is I need to put a Google Map in a page. Right now the workarounds are convoluted. I simply want to permanently disable TinyMCE on that one page.

Surely a better approach would be to fix TinyMCE so that it doesn't fluff up markup in these situations.

TinyMCE is an external product. Any customizations will have to be re-implemented on each TinyMCE update.

I think the best solution is twofold:

  1. Lobby TinyMCE maintainers to improve code handling.
  2. Implement this feature request and keep it until #1 is fulfilled.

I like the idea of deactivating TinyMCE on a per-post basis, but could it be achieved with a plugin? If so, sounds like plugin territory to me.

  • Milestone Unassigned deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

If you want to disable per-post do it with a plugin.


  • Use the user_can_richedit filter to return false for these pages
  • Store your setting in post_meta
