Hello All,

I have trying to remove these two options insert link and remove links from front end Tinymce editor in the DW plugin of my website. I have tried using the answer given in this link :
in my child theme, but somehow it doesnot change in the front end. However, it make changes accordingly in the backend of my site. I don’t want to edit the parent theme for that. Please provide me some other ways to resolve it.

And thanks for the wonderful plugin.

Hi Chandra Dev Borah,

You can use the add_filter to dwqa_tinymce_toolbar1 (This filter is only available since DWQA 1.3.6). Please open functions.php file in the child-theme folder then add the following code:

add_filter( 'dwqa_tinymce_toolbar1', 'dwqa_disable_tinymce_options' );
function dwqa_disable_tinymce_options( $button ) {
       return 'bold,italic,underline,|,'.'bullist,numlist,blockquote,|,'.'image,code,|,'.'spellchecker,fullscreen,dwqaCodeEmbed,|,';

Kevin, this is an excellent solution.

Chandra, you can also use this code if you want to select different buttons for the site administrators and for the plain users.

add_filter( 'dwqa_tinymce_toolbar1', 'dwqa_disable_tinymce_options' );
function dwqa_disable_tinymce_options( $button ) {

if ( current_user_can('manage_options') )
{ return 'link,unlink';
} else {
       return 'spellchecker';

With the above quote, only the website administrators see the buttons to add and remove links, and the plain users only get a spellchecker.

Great! Thanks a lot for this tip. But how is it possible to disable the code editor (like in this forum)?

You can add the following code to the style.css file:
.wp-switch-editor { display: none; }
