Include ‘anchor’ and ‘code’ TinyMCE4 plugins

The old (and hidden) ‘anchor’ and ‘code’ TINYMCE3 buttons are now plugins in TINYMCE4.

These two buttons are referenced in a lot of Wordpress 3.9.1 files, like class-wp-editor.php, tinymce.min.js or wp-langd-en.js'’ but... the plugins are NOT INCLUDED in the /wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins'’ directory!!

Please, can you include the plugins in the next Wordpress version? Thanks.

To reveal the hidden buttons I used to use this Codex guide. This guide still works when the plugins are correctly placed (and loaded).


Please, excuse my poor english, it's not my mother language.

Yes, this is a change in TinyMCE 4.0. The 'code' and 'anchor' plugins can probably be added back and left unused if there are many users that enable them. On the other hand it would be pointless to add them if only few users are using them...

It is also very easy to extend your plugin that enables these buttons and include the actual TinyMCE plugins. See for more info. At this point I'm thinking this should be handled by a WordPress plugin.

The TinyMCE code plugin is to edit the HTML? Not sure if we need that and if that was ever added by default?

This has been gone for the last three releases, so it is a bit pointless to add this now. If we ever want to support anchors, it should go in the current link modal imo. See also azaozz's comment above.
