Sometimes, you might want to remove a few buttons from the WordPress TinyMCE editor. There could be a whole bunch of reasons for wanting to do this, but I’m not going to get into that just now. Anyhow, it’s good to know that you can make a simplified TinyMCE user interface, if you want/need to.
The following function and call to
add_filter() will do just that.
You could use the above in your theme’s
functions.php file, or wherever you deem fit, and it should result in an editor that looks similar to the image below (note the number of buttons).
