Are you looking for a way to change the default editor? This snippet changes the default editor to be either the Visual Editor or the Text Editor (HTML Editor).
Add one of the following snippets to your theme’s functions.php file or in a site-specific plugin.
- This snippet makes the Visual Editor the default editor.
# This sets the Visual Editor as default # add_filter( 'wp_default_editor', create_function('', 'return "tinymce";') );
# This sets the HTML Editor as default # add_filter( 'wp_default_editor', create_function('', 'return "html";') );
