WordPress is one of the most popular content management systems out there. It’s not only easy to use, but is also incredibly flexible. This makes it an equally enticing choice for users who want a simple blogging solution and those who prefer to edit their content in HTML.
Both the WYSIWYG editor and text editor in the WordPress back-end feature a toolbar that allows users to edit their content easily. The HTML text editor, however, displays a set of default quicktags that enables users to style their content without having to enclose the text in opening and closing tags by hand.
We’ve designed this code snippet generator tool to help WordPress developers add custom quicktags to their themes. We’ll start off by explaining what quicktags are in more detail and why you might need to use them. Once that’s done, we’ll explain how you can use this code snippet generator tool to add custom quicktags to your WordPress themes.
