Add Custom Styles to the WordPress Editor

As a website building platform, WordPress is a very visually evocative medium, it deals with themes and layouts as well as setting and styles. In order to make the most of your website, you should be able to use the TinyMCE editor in order to redesign your webpage based on the style that you approve of the most. Adding the custom style option to the editor will enable the user to efficiently stylize each element without necessarily referring to codes.

Add Custom Styles to the WordPress Editor

1. An easy way to install custom styles to the editor is to create a plug-in that will add the requisite styles in a class to the visual styles editor. The Custom CSS files should be added to a file in the plug-in folder.

2. To create the plug-in, first use a TinyMCE function in order to add the Custom styles to the visual editor in order to ensure they are visible and accessible.

3. Then one needs to add the “style drop down menu” to the editor’s functions, the items for which can be added through code in the subsequent steps. The drop down should be added to the second part of the plug-in near the beginning of the row.

4. Next use the $class array to add the requisite custom styles which would appear in the drop down menu. It is always more advisable to write under the class array rather than the format automatically prescribed by the TinyMCE documentation.

5. Lastly, the Custom Stylesheet needs to be added to the front end of the site or the visual editor and this can be done by using the script enqueueing function. The code for this is wp_enqueue_scripts which needs to be added to the end part of the plug-in in order to ensure the visibility of the quick custom styles that you have just added.
