Description (last modified by SergeyBiryukov)

Is it not time to give us some configuration and visual editor for comment form in the core ?
I am struggling with it in functions.php from website to website, losing to much time.
Using TinyMCE Advanced plugin and all is flow and easy for admin part. To not to mess with code in functions.php.
But if i use code for "teeny" in comments, then it is very difficult to customize what buttons are active, what not. Not to mention plenty of snippets around, many of them old and not working with latest TinyMCE versions.

I hope i wont hurt someone by saying you in core community lost it a bit.
I see you dont use visual editor on WordPress support forum. That i can understand perfectly, to 100%. So many visitors, so many people clicking at the same tame, page load, speed, etc... WordPress website is a huge monster.

But....90% of websites around dont have so many visitors at the same time. Take for example tourism industry. Tourism websites, in almost all cases, dont have 10-100 visitors clicking around website at the same time.

So, TinyMCE with all its JS, CSS files would influence almost nothing.

Take a lesson from Drupal (they are not shy to copy things from WordPress). Drupal visual editor is configurable to least detail.

Replying to Stagger Lee:

There are plugins that provide this functionality already (example: https://wordpress.org/plugins/tinymce-comment-field/) , and I haven't seen enough of a demand for this feature to be included in core.

I am going to close this ticket for now, if there is enough demand we can re-open for consideration.

Thank you, but no. I use code snippet from WP Edit PRO for this. Bought licence only for this, to have updated code what works with all latest WP core code. Problem are code lines for nested replies too. Demands some lines of JS.


I think you didn't installed or activated the Titan Framework Plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/titan-framework/) that is required to use my Plugin. Don't you see the notification like in this screenshot?
