1. Proofread: Spelling mistakes and grammar blunders are very common. Editing your own articles is tough and sometimes you just can’t correct all the mistakes by simply re-reading your articles. For this, install the plugin ‘TinyMCE Spellcheck’, activate this. After that, you need to go to Users » Your Profile to configure the plugin settings. Then, an icon ‘proofread writing‘ appeared in visual editor.
2.Editor: Most WordPress users spend more time with WordPress visual editor writing posts than any other part of the admin area. WordPress visual editor allows you to create content in a WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) environment.
- By default the Visual Editor only shows a single row of buttons in the editor. Kitchen Sink is the last button in this row. Clicking on it will display another row of buttons with more buttons.
- It is annoying to move the mouse over just to make some text bold or add a link. The visual editor comes with a bunch of useful keyboard shortcuts for the most common formatting tasks.
3.Multi Column: WordPress post editor does not come with a default solution to add multi column content in a post or a page. However you can add multi-column content by switching to Text mode and write the HTML to create columns. Ofcourse that’s not the easiest way to do it. To make it easier, you should install plugin ‘Advanced WP Columns’, and then an icon appear on WYSIWYG (2nd line, right side). After that you should drag +Add button in progress bar.

4.Table Press: Another thing missing from the default WordPress post editor is a button to create tables. Sometimes you may need to insert data tables in WordPress posts.
One way to add tables in WordPress is by using some online table generator, but these tables are not pretty. Luckily there is an easier way to add tables in WordPress posts directly from the post editor. Install a plugin ‘TablePress’. After activating this plugin, you should create tables and save it after data entry. Now, you can easily insert shortcodes of these tables in any post, pages.
5. CSS Buttons: There are many WordPress plugins that allow you to add beautiful call to action buttons in WordPress using shortcodes. The problem is that your button is not instantly visible in the editor. What if we told you that you can add buttons and see them exactly as they would look in your WordPress post or pages? A really strange name, but useful plugin ‘Forget About Shortcode Buttons’ installation and activation is necessary. After that in your visual editor, an icon appear (Insert Button), and after that you will understand everything.
6. Shortcodes in WordPress allow you to add various functionality into posts, pages, and widgets without actually writing any code. Hence the name, Shortcode. Many WordPress plugins and some themes use shortcodes to add different elements such as pricing grid, event calendar, etc into WordPress. In this article, we will share 7 essential tips for using shortcodes in WordPress.
- Shortcodes are great, but using shortcodes in every post is not a great idea. There are many WordPress themes out there that proudly claim to have 200+ shortcodes. However if you use a shortcode in every post, then you are forever tied to the specific theme that’s providing the shortcode.
- Shortcodes are great, but if it’s provied by your theme, then you may want to think twice about excessively using it. Why? Because if you change your theme, then your next theme most likely will not have the same shortcode.
- Often users think that shortcodes are limited to posts and pages, but they are not. You can use it inside your WordPress text widgets. Simply drag and drop a text widget to your sidebar and add your shortcode inside it. Remember, this feature is not enabled by default in WordPress. In case you can’t see your shortcode in a widget, then you need to add this code in your theme’s functions.php file or a site-specific plugin.
