I am using the Excerpts Plus template and for “Forms” extension. For the Biography Info and Notes fields, when a user is on the form page, I see Biography Info and Notes uses a rich text editor, and the user access to both the Visual and Text tabs, thus can input their own HTML. The user also have access to the rich text editor’s menu like File, Edit, Insert, etc. Is there a way to block these features of the rich text editor for these two fields? Ideally I want the user to just have a free-form text field with some basic options for styling like Bold, Italicize, bullet points, etc. Or would I be better off not using the built in Biography Info and Notes fields and just create a custom field?03/04/2015 at 9:19 am #321499Steven ZahmKeymaster

Take a look at the demo for the Form extension, it does not have a menu bar or the File, Edit, Insert, menu items. The Form extension and the core Connections plugin uses the core WordPress text editor with a good many of the core WordPress added items removed. The menu bar and items are not part of the core WordPress text editor, so my guess is that there is a plugin installed that is adding those to the editor. If that is the case there is probably not much I can do about other than suggesting that you deactivate the plugin that is adding the menu bar. If you can identify the plugin that is adding the menu bar, I’ll take a look to see if there is a way I can ensure it does not add itself to the text editor when used by Connections.

That all that should be showing, like mentioned above, it is like another plugin adding this to the editor.

Probably not.03/04/2015 at 7:46 pm #321624
Good day Mr. Zahm. Thank you for your reply. You were absolutely right. I was using the plugin called TinyMCE and I was able to turn off that menu, so I now see exactly what’s on your demo. Thank you again for the excellent support.03/04/2015 at 8:18 pm #321633Steven ZahmKeymaster
