Re-add text underline and justify

Description

In WordPress 4.7, the core developper team decided to make various changes in the editor (TinyMce WYSIWYG), including removing the underline and justify buttons and rearranging some of the toolbar buttons.
If you don’t want to change the way you edit your content and/or don’t want to confuse your customers with a new contribution interface, this very lightweight plugin will set the editor style back to its previous state (like in WordPress 4.6 and above versions).

You may change the Editor style from the Writing option page.

4 options are available for the Editor style :

  • Default – without underline & justify buttons
  • Re-add underline & justify buttons
  • Re-add underline & justify + rearrange
  • Re-add justify only (added in 0.1.3)

Please note, the third option is, in my opinion, a good compromise between the 4.6 and 4.7 editor versions. It moves up the style select to the first line and moves the underline button after the other text position buttons.

IMPORTANT: Try different options before posting a bug repport. Some plugins like ACF (free version) are using there own list of buttons and can create conflict with this plugin. Option 3 and 4 are best to prevent this plugin from removing your existing buttons.

Reviews

Thanks to help fight back the absurdity!

Thanks for helping the community to stay safe from the silly decisions of the dictators who provide us this great tool which ins WordPress. It would be great that for each silly decision someone would come out with a way to block it.

It was stupid of WordPress to remove them in the first place.

I can’t fathom the idiocy and broken logic that led to wordpress removing these buttons in the first place.

The justifications posted by Andrew Ozz were nonsensical at best and showed his indifference to the average user and designers.

Thank you for making this plugin.
Please don’t use it to hack my sites.

Works, thank you.

I can’t thank the plug-in maker enough. I wound up having to hand-code in the justify and underline. Whomever on the WP team who thought we should be denied justify and underline need to rethink their arrogance.
