I have a custom button in my visual editor in the backend (I use WP’s default, Tinymce). I would like the custom button to show up in the frontend (in the answer form). Or how do I get the frontend to use the same editor as the backend?

We’ve used the tinyMCE editor of wordpress default, if you want to remove several unused icons, you can add the following code to the function.php file:

add_filter("mce_buttons", "tinymce_editor_buttons", 99); //targets the first line
add_filter("mce_buttons_2", "tinymce_editor_buttons_second_row", 99); //targets the second line

function tinymce_editor_buttons($content) {
return array(
    //add more here...

function tinymce_editor_buttons_second_row($content) {
   //return an empty array to remove this line
    return array();

The button control list can be found here:
Hope this helps !
